Quality suspension components are a must for everyday driving. The suspension sees a lot of up and downs on the road and takes daily abuse. Koni shocks deliver extreme comfort and reliability for any type of automotive suspension setup. Koni shocks offer various types of dampers to accommodate both street driving and high performance driving on the race track.
Automotive shocks absorbers are necessary on any suspension to control ride stability. Without a shock absorber, the coil spring would bounce up and down uncontrollably. Driving without shocks wouldn’t be so fun. The vehicle would be uncontrollable and super bouncy. The top of the shock absorber is mounted to the frame and the bottom is mounted to the axle near the wheel. Shock absorbers not only prevent bounce, but they prevent sway, brake dive, and acceleration squat as well. Brake dive occurs when the vehicle comes to a sudden stop and the front end dives.
