Ford shocks and struts are parts which are out of sight for the regular person, but they are easily one of the most important parts for ensuring safety. Both are equally important if you want to drive smoothly. When both of these parts are in a good working condition, the car’s suspension will also be in a good working condition. Prior to what some believe, there is a difference between a shock and a strut. Although there is the tendency to think they are the same and perform the same job (there is some truth to this). Shocks are and struts are different when you look at design due to the fact of their indifference regarding their function.
Ford shocks have the purpose of absorbing the bumps in the road to support the moving vehicle to minimize wear and tear on essential components while improving the level of comfort in which passengers are travelling. Shocks work with basic hydraulic mechanics. Shock absorbers are filled with gas or fluid that absorbs the movements of the supports leaf springs of a vehicle. However, at the same time it exerts pressure on the tires in order to keep them on the ground firmly. The action of the shocks and springs working together forms part of the support system of most vehicles.
Ford struts form a very important part of the suspension. It serves as the pivot for the steering rack and reinforces control of the upper arm. While shocks are present in the rear of a car, struts are present in the front of a car. Both shocks and struts are essential pieces of your suspension but when you look at struts, a car cannot drive if there are no struts but if you take away Ford shocks, the car can still work, but the driving experience will be a little more that bumpy. The reason is simple; struts provide structural support to a car.
