What are shock absorbers?
The shock absorbers on your 4×4 have the responsibility of controlling the springs on your 4wd’s suspension system. The springs could be coil, leaf or torsion bars. Without shock absorbers fitted to your 4×4, your vehicle with bounce around uncontrollably over the smallest bumps. Your 4wd’s weight would shift dangerously as it goes around corners making you lose control. As your 4×4’s springs compresses, it then must rebound. It is the job of the shock absorber to control or slow down the rebound so that the vehicle becomes stable.
TJM vs Factory shock absorbers
