Know Your Vehicle

What's important to you: Vehicle safety, comfort or performance?
Most people would say that all three are important, but at different times. A comfortable ride on a straight, smooth road without much traffic on a clear, dry day is easy. But change the conditions slightly and suddenly your priorities change. You know what I'm talking about if you've ever had to quickly dodge something in the road, fight strong winds or experienced white-knuckle driving on irregular or slippery roads.

Your vehicle's ability to offer the utmost driving safety, comfort & performance directly relates to its Ride Control design & the condition of its components. Ride control is comprised of four inter-related systems: The tires, brakes, suspension and steering. Each system affects the other, such as; a worn suspension component adversely affects braking, steering and tire performance. The same is true in every combination when any other ride control component is worn.

Shocks and struts are part of your vehicle's suspension system. Technically speaking, they control coil spring oscillations. But for a better understanding of why that's important to you, consider what it would be like if excessive vehicle body weight movement affected the steering? And, what if the tires bounced more and stayed on the pavement less? That's basically what shocks and struts are designed to control. The result should be vehicle stability and maximum tire to road contact: Safer, smoother and designed to keep the driver in control.

The following links were created to help you understand the important role that shocks and struts are responsible for. We hope that this information helps you make good decisions about maintaining your vehicle and choosing the right replacement products.
