Did you know that the first Chevrolet was sold for $2,150? Cars sure have become a lot more expensive since those days but their quality has also greatly improved since the first vehicles were produced. An important part of your Chevy is the Chevrolet shock absorber. C.L. Horock created the first modernized shock absorber in 1901. He named it the telescopic shock absorber and shock absorbers to this day are still based on the initial concept that Horock created. But why are they so important? Well if you want a smooth ride and the expected control of your Tahoe then you will want to make sure your Chevrolet shock absorber is working.

The primary function of a Chevy shock absorber is to control spring and suspension movement. This is done by the conversion of kinetic energy of the suspension movement and turning into thermal energy (heat energy) in order to be run through the hydraulic fluid. So they are very similar to oil pumps. This means that Chevy shock absorbers make sure to keep your tires in contact with the ground at all times. The shock absorbers will also reduce bumps over the road to make for a more comfortable ride and better vehicle handling.

Most Chevy shock absorbers will either be mono tube or twin tube. A twin tube Chevy shock absorber is made up of a couple nested cylindrical tubes; the inner tube is called the working or pressure tube, and an outer is called the reserve tube. At the bottom, of the device on the inside is a compression valve. When the piston is forced up or down by uneven road movement, hydraulic fluid moves between different chambers via small holes in the piston and via the valve, converting the shock energy into heat which then must be dispersed.

In mono tube Chevy shocks there is only one tube, the pressure tube, but it does have two pistons. These pistons are called the working piston and the dividing or floating piston, and they move in sync inside the pressure tube in response to the changes in road conditions. The two pistons also separate the shock’s fluid and gas components. In terms of size, the mono tube Chevy shock absorber is much longer overall than the twin tubes, because of this they are difficult to mount in cars that are design for twin tube shocks.

Since your Chevy shocks are important to help the suspension of your car and give you a good ride quality it is important that you get the proper Chevy replacement shocks. We went over the differences earlier so make sure you either get the twin- tube or mono-tube Chevy replacement shock absorber. If you need a Chevy shock and strut set we also carry those.
