The function and purpose of Shock Absorber.

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 Volvo 242 shock absorbers, every inconsistency in the road will be felt by you and your passengers. The shocks on your car or truck have a valve that creates hydraulic pressure inside the cylinder with every movement. This pressure forces a piston to compress a pocket of charged gas that resists and rebounds against it. This resistance is what absorbs vibration and impact. Today, many small vehicles have replaced their shock absorbers with strut and coil spring assemblies; but not your Volvo 242.

The experience this company has to provide.

Don't let a broken Shock Absorber spell the end of your car, truck, or SUV, and don't risk lowering its resale value by installing anything but the highest quality repair parts.
