    Shock

    Shock Operation:

    A device that uses hydraulic or air pressure to reduce and dampen (absorb) vibrations, up-and-down tire movement and movement of the coil spring. They keep the suspension from bouncing after coil spring compression. Since all passenger and light truck shocks and struts dampen at a ratio of 50:50, the unit with the largest piston diaphragm or shaft assembly will offer the best ride.

    How To Instructions:

    Inspect - Check for obvious problems.
    Test - Give it an in-depth diagnosis.
    Service - Do the jobs that fix your car.
    Replace - Out with the old, in with the new.
