Obviously, you didn't buy your Thing unless you understood you would be getting good looks and long-lasting service both rolled up into one car, truck, or SUV. You picked your Thing because its German engineering and reliable performance struck a chord inside you; so why would you settle for anything but the best when it comes to great quality auto parts? When your Volkswagen Thing was born, it was destined for a driver who values reliable performance in their automobile. Anyone who operates a Volkswagen knows that when it comes to fixing their car, truck, or SUV only the absolute best replacement parts will do.
The first production cars from over a hundred years ago must have been very unpleasant to drive. Shock absorbers were one of the early 20th century's biggest innovations, and they contributed to the agility you feel today on your vehicle. Without your Volkswagen Thing shock absorbers, the feeling you get while driving down the road would be much worse. The shocks on your car or truck dampen sharp movements by compressing and releasing a pocket of gas within the shock body using hydraulic pressure created by a valve and piston. Today, a strut and coil spring assembly has replaced the shock absorber on front suspensions due to its increased mobility; so depending on the age of your Volkswagen Thing, you may only find them in the rear.
