Penske Racing Shocks is an innovative leader in short track racing technology. We have been on the fore front of quality dampers for modifieds for the past 15. A shock absorber is a mechanical or hydraulic device designed to absorb and damp shock Effective wheel bounce damping may require tuning shocks to an optimal resistance. . Such struts are called oleo struts (combining oil and air) . and mechanisms of material damping, ASTM special technical publication. " Damper " is a term that describes the primary function of a shock or strut. Both are intended to control spring oscillation. They do this by damping the spring's.
