Monroe® Max-Air® Air Adjustable Shocks. The Max-Air® shock absorber is. Designed to maintain level vehicle height, they can be inflated or deflated as needed... From 20 psi to 150 psi with the vehicle loaded. WHAT ARE SHOCKS AND STRUTS?
SHOCKS AND STRUTS HELP KEEP YOUR VEHICLE'S TIRES IN CONTACT WITH THE ROAD. Shocks and struts maintain vertical loads placed upon the tires. This helps ensure consistent, firm tire-to-road contact. By providing resistance to vehicle bounce, roll and sway - as well as brake dive and acceleration squat - shocks and struts help to maintain a balanced ride.
Shock absorbers are individual components of the suspension system. Struts are a major structural component of the vehicle chassis and suspension. The amount of resistance a shock absorber develops depends on the speed of the suspension and the number and size of the orifices in the piston. All modern shock absorbers are velocity sensitive hydraulic damping devices - meaning the faster the suspension moves, the more resistance the shock absorber provides. Because of this feature, shock absorbers adjust to road conditions.As a result, shock absorbers reduce the rate of. Brake dive and Acceleration squat.
Shock absorbers work on the principle of fluid displacement on both the compression and extension cycle. A typical car or light truck will have more resistance during its extension cycle then its compression cycle.
The compression cycle controls the motion of a vehicle's unsprung weight, while extension controls the heavier sprung weight. What is a Safety Triangle? Inspection consists of a three-part process during which a professional technician checks critical interconnected system components that control steering, stopping and stability. For your safety, have a complete Safety Triangle? Inspection every time your vehicle is brought in for tire, brake or alignment service.
Shocks / struts and brakes work together to help your vehicle stop sooner under rough driving conditions, by keeping tires and wheels in contact with the road. Shocks / struts and tires work together to help maximize tire-to-road contact, improving vehicle stability and minimizing weight transfer.
Like most safety-critical chassis components, shocks and struts do wear out over the course of normal operation. The rate of wear depends on a wide range of variables, such as road and environmental conditions, your driving style and vehicle load. In general, however, shocks and struts wear so gradually that the negative effects - reduced steering precision, stopping performance and/or vehicle stability - might not be easily recognized in normal driving conditions.In addition to these safety concerns, worn shocks and struts could negatively affect. Rate and pattern of tire wear.
