Dampers perform an important role in the suspension system of your car - they are shock absorbers that ultimately make your driving experience more comfortable. To find the dampers that will fit your car, simply enter your registration number and click OK.
Otherwise known as dampeners or struts, dampers are pistons that operate inside a cylinder that is filled with oil, or with both oil and gas (the latter configuration tends to be more efficient). They are designed, by way of an up-and-down movement within the cylinder, to reduce the effects of spring oscillations caused by bumps in the road, so they are constantly working to keep your car level with the road and comfortable to drive. Failing dampers will tend to make your suspension feel ‘soft’ and you will notice shocks to the suspension system more frequently when you are on the road. There are three different types of dampers – strut, telescopic and lever-arm – so be sure to consult your owner’s manual and a specialist before you commit to buying one from our product range.
