As residents of southern California can tell you, an aftershock can be a pretty jarring thing. And, while you’re not at risk for losing pictures off the wall or dishes flying out of the cupboard while riding around in your vehicle, those bumps and cracks in the road can still make the ride considerably uncomfortable.
Your suspension components support the weight of your car or truck as well as all passengers and cargo—a hefty task for stock components and even more so when placed under the demands of performance driving. Honda suspension components and similar parts found in any vehicle’s suspension system allow the tires and wheels of your vehicle to move up and down. In doing so, they minimize the impact from cracks, crevices and other objects that can cause a bumpy ride. In addition, Honda Koni shocks, Civic Tokico shocks and the like help combat excessive body squat and dive when you hit the brakes (or the gas) a little too quickly, making shocks a key component of modern suspension systems.
Shocks come in a couple different varieties, including coil springs and air shocks. Of the two, air suspension has remained the more popular for its versatility and superior ride-quality. Air suspension is powered by an engine-driven or electric air compressor that pressurizes air and uses it to replace conventional steel springs. Doing so enables them to soften the contact between the axle and the frame, reducing bottoming out and providing 500 - 5,000 pounds of self-leveling capability. An additional benefit of air suspension components is that they allow you to adjust each wheel's air pressure individually. You can even tilt the vehicle side to side or front to back. This feature makes them an essential upgrade for those who’ve incorporated leveling kits or lowering kits onto their ride.
Aftermarket air suspension systems come complete with everything required to effectively upgrade your vital suspension components, including the air compressor, manifold, wiring harness and control box. Many kits even feature advanced diagnostics. In addition, many aftermarket suspension systems can be controlled via wireless remote, enabling you to adjust your shocks with just the push of a button. Best of all, today’s suspension systems include a user-defined memory that enables you to pre-program a number of preferred settings and instantly switch between them.
Honda accessories, like vehicle-specific shocks and other suspension components, enable you to personalize your vehicle while ensuring the smoothest possible ride. With this level of functionality, looking good has never been easier!
