Hummer H2 Rear Shocks
About rear shocks
A shock absorber a crucial feature in a vehicle known as a damper, is a mechanical or hydraulic system designed to absorb shock impulses, dampen the shocks, and allow safe drive experience. The rear shock absorbers are dashpot type that converts kinetic energy to heat energy by dissipating heat that prevents movement through viscous friction.
What is the purpose of rear shocks?
The main function of rear shock absorbers is similar to that of other vehicle shock absorbers. They restrict or sway the total movement of the vehicle's body so that, as the vehicle moves up and down or side to side depending on the type of road on which it is on, they maintain a balance in response.
How rear shocks works?
The rear shock absorbers operate in a systematic way, the lower eye shifts up when the vehicle comes across a bump. This allows the fluid to move from valve A's lower side to its upper side. This results in pressure being exerted on valve B, as the space volume above valve A is less than the volume of rod G. Hence, the damping force is established, now that the lower eye E is going down, the fluid moves from the upper side of the valve A to the lower side and also from the lower side of the valve B to the upper side. It is extremely necessary that the absorber fluid is periodically filled to maintain the required amount as per the manufacturer of the vehicles.
