Hydraulic vs Gas Charged Shocks

Posted by Administrator on 12/21/2017 to Hard to Find Shock Blogs
Hydraulic vs Gas Charged Shocks
Hydraulic shocks provide a softer ride than gas charged.
 These shocks were original equipment on most cars prior to 1980.
 The ride feels softer because of slight lag of response in a hydraulic shock
 compared to a gas charged shock which has an instantaneous response.
