Lets discuss about which suspension system spring and absorber brand that is the best for your car. The topic suggested by ace prima and I would like to elaborate a bit on that for us to get some ideas on suspension system and the brand available for you to choose. For those who have the experience using any suspension system brand on your car, please give some sincere review here.
When designing vehicle suspension systems, it is well-known that spring and damper characteristics required for good handling on a vehicle are not the same as those required for good ride comfort. Any choice of spring and damper characteristic is therefore necessarily a compromise between ride comfort and handling.
Many people just concentrate on lowering the car and assume that stiffer springs and the lower ride height will improve handling.
However there are many other settings for your suspension which can make a massive difference to the handling before you even think about changing components.
The shocks are generally a piston inside a liquid and some have an additional gas chamber to absorb shocks (gas compresses whereas liquid does not compress under pressure.)
Shocks can have a fairly complicated structure.
Testing the shocks on your car you bounce the car – if you get more than one bounce then your shock are on the way out.
Without shocks the car would drive like a thing on a spring and just bounce everywhere.
Damper – the shock absorber, Bound & Rebound settings.
This is the dampening force of the shock absorber. Bound is the rate at which the shock allows compression and rebound is the rate at which the shock releases the compression.
If your suspension has a dampening control then you can play with these settings and get the optimum setting. Electronic in car adjustments is now possible and if you are considering drifting your car you really should invest in one of these set-ups.
However, The best suspension system is the adjustable hi-low suspension which you can adjust for comfort or handling or mix of both equally. Below are some of the list of suspension system which consists of springs and absorber available in aftermarket with each brand price.
