ADJUSTABLE SHOCK ABSORBERS: Describes a type of shock absorber fitted with an adjustable jounce and rebound characteristics that allow them to be stiffened to compensate for wear or fine-tune a suspension for a particularly challenging application such as driving on rough roads or carrying heavy loads.
DAMPER: Describes a friction device generally described as a "shock absorber" used for damping spring oscillations-most modern cars used tubular-shaped hydraulic shock absorbers.
DOUBLE-ACTING SHOCK ABSORBER: Describes a shock absorber fitted with a piston containing hydraulic fluid on both sides so that both upward and downward movements can be damped.
INNER CYLINDER: Describes the working chamber of a double-tube shock absorber.
LEVER-TYPE SHOCK ABSORBER: Describes a spring-damper absorber operated a chassis-mounted hydraulic damper unit by a lever arm.
RESERVOIR: Describes the space between the outer and inner tubes of a double-tube shock absorber that takes up the oil released from the working chamber in line with that released by the piston rod immersed in the working chamber.
SHOCK ABSORBER: Describes an oil-filled device used to control spring oscillation in the suspension system.
SHOCK ABSORBER TOWER: Describes a box-section design sheet metal panel spot-welded to the car body that serves as an anchoring point for the top shock absorber mount.
SINGLE-TUBE SHOCK ABSORBER: Describes a standard form of shock absorber with a working cylinder and reservoir in the same tube.
TELESCOPIC SHOCK ABSORBER: Describes a tubular-shaped spring damper operated through rod and piston regarded as the most common type of shock absorber
