Two different technologies

There are several different types of shock absorbers in the motor industry. The two most frequently used are hydraulic oil dampers and gas dampers.

Euro4x4parts offers both at very attractive prices.     

Hydraulic shock absorbers

Hydraulic shock absorbers work by means of a piston that compresses the oil in the shock absorber tube. This compression is more or less rapid, depending on the force of  impact .

Gas shock absorbers

Gas shock absorbers work on the same principle as hydraulic models, the only difference being that the nitrogen in the circuit improves piston responsiveness. These models are therefore considered to be more efficient.
