Are Your Shocks Worn Out?

Apr
21

What exactly do the shock absorbers on your car do?  Silly question, right?  Everyone knows they absorb the bumps and shocks that occur when you drive your car on bumpy roads.  If a car didn’t have shock absorbers, every time you hit a bump, the whole car would jump around?

Well, as it turns out, they have nothing to do with absorbing shocks.  The springs, either coil or leaf-style, that are on each wheel of your car absorb the shocks and bumps.  What the shock absorbers do is dampen the bouncing of the springs so your car doesn’t bounce up and down after hitting a bump.  Technically, shocks should be called “Spring Dampeners” not “Shock Absorbers”.

There are many warning signs that tell you when your shock absorbers need replacing.  When you hit a bump, does your car bounce up and down several times before settling down?  If so, your shocks may need to be replaced. Other signs are exaggerated body lean in corners or your front end dives down when you apply your brakes hard.

Challenger SRT Hellcat Coming in Europe

2015 GeigerCars Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Front AngleSRT stands for ‘Street and Racing Technology’, an appropriate tag for the Challenger SRT Hellcat, since this new king of the muscle cars is equally at home on the road, track or 1/4-mile drag strip.

The 6.2-litre V8 that powers the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is based on the larger displacement 6.4-litre, 492 hp engine of the Challenger SRT 392.

But where the SRT 392’s motor is naturally-aspirated, the Hellcat’s bent-crank V8 dances to the beat of a twin-screw supercharger.

1969 Dodge Hemi Daytona Front AngleThe word “restraint” is seldom associated with the muscle car era of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, but it certainly applies to the owners of this astounding 1969 Dodge Hemi 4-speed Daytona, which has been driven an amazing 6,435 miles and is the lowest-mileage example known to exist with its original Hemi engine still intact. Of the 503 Daytonas built, only 70 were Hemi-powered, and only 20 combined that with a 4-speed manual transmission, making this example very special indeed.
