None of the suspension system in a land vehicle can be completed without the shock absorbers. These simple devices improve the ride quality of your vehicle to an entire new level by very effectively dealing with any sort of disturbances of a bumpy road. It absorbs most of the impact of your vehicle’s motion and recoil it to return to the actual position instantly after hitting a dip. Without shock absorbers, any land vehicle will be extremely stiff and not worthy of riding comfortably.

Struts’ main aim is to conform your vehicle to the roads and making the travelling smoother. Struts have very strong springs within them and they tend to compress and recoil the vehicle when it bounces or moves. These components are often used in architecture and building construction for their ability to absorb longitudinal compression.
