Shock Absorber (SA)

Shock absorbers are products mounted between the body frame and tires along with springs to absorb vibrations from the frame. The springs expand and contract to absorb the shock from road surface irregularities. The shock absorber restricts vibrations when the compressed spring returns to its original state. Shocks provide a comfortable ride and greater steering stability. Today, KYB shock absorbers are equipped on one in five vehicles worldwide.
