Off-road driving is hard on your suspension system. Rocking your Jeep back and forth over uneven terrain wears out your dampeners. If you are depending on the factory parts to keep your body roll under control, you are trusting a bit too much to fate. Upgrade with high-quality aftermarket Jeep shock absorbers.
How Do Shock Absorbers Work?
Your springs are there to support the weight of your Jeep and provide flexibility. When kinetic energy from bumps in the road travels up the suspension system, your springs give that excess energy somewhere to go. Without them, you would feel every impact with your spine.
The problem with springs is that they wobble around a bit too much. Our performance shocks for Jeeps keep even extreme oscillations under control with hydraulic pressure. They mount to the body at one end, and the suspension at the other. When your control arms travel up and down, a piston inside is compressed. This piston absorbs kinetic energy and resists excess travel of the spring.
Testing Your Shocks
It's easy to tell when shocks are worn out. Press down firmly on the corner of your bumper and watch for excess travel. Your Jeep should pop back up to its normal ride height and stop. If it bounces up and down, the shocks are weak. When driving, your tires will hop slightly causing premature wear. This is noticeable in wear pattern in the tread. Look for cupping along the inside edges.

It’s not fake news to say that quality Jeep shock absorbers upgrade your ride. When you are off-road, your suspension needs to be built to handle the bumps and dips you encounter on the trail. Worn out or inferior shocks can cause you to lose control and wind up contemplating the sky while turned turtle, wondering where you went wrong. The simple answer might just be that you need new shocks, but now you’ve got bigger problems.
To absorb the energy that comes with rugged motion, premium Jeep Wrangler shocks cut down on sway and drift while providing less bounce in the cabin. Pro Comp shock absorbers are made with the latest technology and feature advanced hydraulics. Cellular gas reduces aeration and foaming and increases comfort in the driver’s seat. Quality materials and engineering make for a smooth ride on the blacktop or rock.
