Honda Shock Absorber and Strut Assembly Articles

If the ride in your vehicle has become uncomfortable, and the vehicle seems to keep bouncing after the bumps more than it should, chances are that the time has come to replace those Honda shocks. There is more than comfort at stake when your Honda shocks become worn, because they also provide stability to the vehicle as you drive, helping the vehicle maintain good contact with the road as you pass over the rough patches. Honda shocks are also important for good vehicle control when you apply the brakes, especially if a quick stop is necessary. Honda shocks are a component in the suspension system of your vehicle, designed to help your vehicle to handle the bumps and vibrations of rough roads and uneven surfaces safely. A great deal of the impact of these hazards is absorbed by the Honda shocks before it reaches the body of the vehicle, resulting in a smoother ride and less vibration damage to vehicle parts. The control of shock and vibration is hard work, and will begin to cause wear and tear on the Honda shocks, gradually reducing their ability to insulate the vehicle from the affects of the rough roads. This deterioration often shows in the steering and handling performance of your vehicle, especially as you are making turns. The vehicle may bounce excessively making control difficult. The braking distance can be increased significantly with worn Honda shocks as well, creating a safety hazard. We carry a selection of quality replacement Honda shocks in our online catalog at great prices to make it easy to keep your vehicle at its best. Ordering your Honda shocks is always safe and easy on our secure site or our toll-free phone line is available for your convenience.

Buying the Best Honda Shock Absorber and Strut Assembly

Shock absorbers and strut assemblies are important parts of your Honda suspension system. Their main purpose is to cushion the car, driver, and passengers from rough road conditions, resulting in a smooth ride every time. Dependable shocks and struts with high-quality specs will prevent excessive bumping, bouncing, and movement on pothole-filled roads by controlling your suspension system's spring action. With that said, here's how you can get your own quality replacement struts and shocks.

Shopping Tips for Strut and Shock Replacement

  1. Struts and Shocks Shopping Overview:Do research on the struts and shocks. Aside from getting a perfect fitment component that's an OEM duplicate or at least OES, you also have the option to upgrade your struts and shocks as well even if you don't need to replace your stock parts. You might need the upgrade regardless if, for example, you've gotten bigger wheels and have already made the requisite suspension adjustment save for getting better shocks and struts.

  1. Driving Conditions:As for the specifics of shocks and struts shopping, the toughness and expensiveness of your prospective product should coincide with the conditions of the roads you drive through as well as the type of Honda you have. If you require struts and shocks for an ATV that has to drive through snow, gravel, or mud, then get monotube high-gas pressure struts with superior dampening power. Otherwise, choose a twin-tube low pressure unit for everyday city driving.

  1. Costliness:If you tend to replace your struts and shocks every few years, then another important aspect motorists should take into consideration is the price. The kind of struts and shocks you've chosen should determine the cost to a huge extent. Your budget should determine the the cost without necessarily compromising the quality. The models that use hydraulic fluid for resistance cost less than their counterparts that utilize pressurized nitrogen gas instead. Again, low pressure struts and shocks are cheaper than monotube high-pressure gas units.

  1. Mount:You should also choose the right strut and shock mounts to make them more effective at their jobs. You can choose between stock and custom mounts. Stock mounts are the mounts that came with your Honda. They're available with various valve options such as non-adjustable, double adjustable, and single adjustable. Custom mounts might be called for if you've customized your ride beyond the original suspension system specifications or you've built your ride from scratch.

  1. Adjustability and Material Composition:Adjustable shocks are mainly for variable driving conditions and applications such as street shows and drag racing. Nonadjustable shocks, on the other hand, are made for everyday ordinary city driving because of their smoothness and consistency. As for material composition, struts and shocks are mainly made of aluminum and steel. Steel is less expensive but they're only available for nonadjustable valve options. Aluminum shocks are more expensive but have better versatility.

Difference between Struts and Shocks

Both these components deter excessive vehicular vibration and serves as an extra safety measure in case of accidents. However, shock absorbers are different from strut assemblies and vice-versa. Struts are mainly used for coil spring dampening and are structured to be massive and complex, surrounded by coil springs from all sides. Shocks, meanwhile, are there for the purpose of leaf spring moistening and are single cylinders placed as independent pieces. This is the reason why shock absorber replacement is a lot cheaper than the more complex struts assembly replacement.
