SHOCK ABSORBERS -- THE MOST MISUNDERSTOOD PARTS ON A CAR

 SHOCK ABSORBERS -- THE MOST MISUNDERSTOOD PARTS ON A CAR
 DEARBORN, Mich., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Shock absorbers may be the


most misunderstood parts on a car or truck. When tires, brakes, or any other auto parts wear out, the driver can usually see or feel the difference. But shock absorber wear is usually very gradual and much more difficult to detect -- perhaps even more so if the original shocks are not of good quality.
 Good quality and well-designed shock absorbers can improve vehicle safety and performance. This is done by keeping tires in maximum contact with the pavement during braking and handling maneuvers. With quality shocks, vehicle stability and tracking are substantially improved during normal driving conditions as well as on difficult roads. Good shocks affect driving comfort by improving stability and affecting ride quality. They also lengthen the life of other suspension parts.
 Tokico (USA) Inc. offers a free educational brochure titled, "A Shock is Just a Shock ... or Is It?" to help drivers understand the effects of shock absorbers on vehicle safety and performance. The two- color brochure explains in easy-to-read text and simple graphics what shock absorbers are and how they work. Consumers can learn what the differences are between shocks and struts in construction and cost -- along with advice on how to detect worn-out shocks and struts.
 Tokico is a world leader in shock absorber and high-tech suspension development. The company supplies original equipment shocks and struts to automobile manufacturers such as Ford, Chrysler, Lexus, Toyota, Infiniti, Nissan, Mazda and others. Tokico also manufactures aftermarket premium performance shock absorbers for a variety of cars and light trucks.
