Advantages of Having a Good Jeep Shock Absorber and Strut Assembly
Your Jeep is designed to conquer both off-road terrains and city streets. With a sturdy Jeep shock absorber and strut assembly, the whole drive will surely be a comfortable yet exciting experience.
Here are some advantages of having a high-quality shock absorber and strut assembly:
Your shock and strut assembly is responsible for making sure that your ride is smooth and uncomfortable. For instance, shocks minimize the vibrations caused by uneven road surfaces. Aside from the shock absorber and strut, the assembly consists of the coil spring, the spring seats, the strut bearing, and the steering knuckle.
Vehicle Handling and Control
A severely worn shock and strut may affect vehicle handling and control. Your Jeep shocks and struts also help maintain tire-ground contact. They also help prevent the vehicle from leaning and swaying during turns as they absorb the road impact, especially when driving over a bump or pothole.
Without a good shock and strut support, suspension quality and steering responsiveness will suffer. You may notice that your ride may lean and sway from side to side when making sharp turns.
Shocks and struts do not only affect ride comfort and vehicle handling and control. This assembly also affects the efficiency of your braking system. If the shocks and struts are worn out, expect a longer stopping distance. Also the vehicle may rock back and forth during sudden stops. At higher speeds, the vehicle may drift left or right when braking.
