Used Car Shock Absorbers
(Last Updated On: October 8, 2018)
Buying Affordable Second Hand Auto Suspension in Auckland
In a car, a shock absorber reduces the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality. Without shock absorbers, the car would have a bouncy ride. Control of excessive suspension movement without shock absorption requires stiffer springs, which would in turn give a harsh ride.
Shock absorbers allow the use of soft springs while controlling the rate of suspension movement in response to bumps. Cars typically employ both springs or torsion bars as well as hydraulic shock absorbers. In this combination, “shock absorber” is reserved specifically for the hydraulic piston that absorbs and dissipates vibration.
Considerations When Buying Used Shock Absorbers
Shock absorbers for most Japanese car models are not usually expensive, but customers may find that high-end and performance parts carry a higher price tag than standard shock absorbers. For this reason, many car owners look for Used Car Shock Absorbers. When shopping for used car parts, it is extremely important to examine the condition of the shock absorbers listed for sale. Those that have been used on off-road vehicles have likely suffered more abuse than those used on cars driven around Auckland. A shopper should be sure to check for any leaks in the used shock absorbers before making a purchase.
Another consideration is price. Customers should compare the prices of the used shock absorbers with those of new ones. Used shock absorbers should be priced well below new ones. Likewise, the condition of the shock absorbers should be reflected in the price. Those that have been barely used and look almost new are priced higher than those that show signs of use or have been used for several thousand kilometers.
