Many things affect vehicles in motion. Weight distribution, speed, road conditions and wind are some factors that affect how vehicles travel down the highway.
The components of the suspension system perform six basic functions: maintain correct vehicle ride height, reduce the effect of shock forces, maintain correct wheel alignment, support vehicle weight, keep the tires in contact with the road, and control the vehicle's direction of travel.
The primary purpose of the shock absorber is to control spring and suspension movement. This is accomplished by turning the kinetic energy of suspension movement into thermal energy, or heat energy, to be dissipated through the hydraulic fluid.
