Impact and shock absorption is definitely not an easy task. So aside from the standard shock absorbers, suspension systems are also equipped with a damper plate. Located just behind the wheels, a damper is a crucial, high-friction, spring-like component that resists or ‘dampens’ movement in your car’s suspension system. This part is often mistaken as a shock absorber, but it functions quite differently from its more popular brother. When your vehicle hits a road bump, the shock spring absorbs the impact. However, after this initial shock, a great percentage of the energy remains jammed inside the spring’s body. Such energy is trapped with no means of escape, so the spring continues to move up and down like a ball. Without a damper plate, your car’s body will move along with the spring, and this motion can greatly affect ride quality. By converting the energy trapped inside the spring into a more useful form of thermal energy, the damper stops the up and down movement immediately. This part is actually just an oil-filled metal cylinder equipped with a rod that’s connected to a piston. One side of the rod is attached to the vehicle, while the other is linked to the suspension system. Any damage on this part must be immediately addressed to avoid decreased ride quality and poor handling.--end--Now that you know the importance of a damper plate, the next step is finding the best place where you can get it at an affordable price.
