Way more than a shock absorber
The shock absorber – or more precisely the vibration damper – has the task of absorbing the vertical vibrations of the body structure and wheels. Together with the suspension, vibration dampers ensure good roadholding for vehicles.
The design and coordination of suspension and shock absorbers always represent a compromise – between driving comfort, driving safety, and agility. Ultimately, the drivers of luxury sedans, SUVs, vans, sports cars or even racecars, have very different expectations of the respective chassis.
As a shock absorber specialist, thyssenkrupp BILSTEIN supplies the right systems for each of these requirements, from our complete product range of shock absorbers, ranging from monotube/twin-tube gas pressure shock absorbers to complete pneumatic spring systems and adjustable shock absorbers.
