Dampers are the most important component in terms of safe control of a motor vehicle after the brakes, tires and steering. The dampers absorb road irregularities and ensure a higher comfort for the occupants. A very important point dampers fulfill in regards to safety, is holding the tire on the road. As well during cornering as heavy braking, dampers prevent the shock that the car bounces like a rubber ball and due to lack of friction forces constitutes a danger. The vibration dampers compress the wheels and check them in braking situations. Without dampers a vehicle would be almost uncontrollable. Decreasing damping is often unconsciously compensated by a change of driving habits of the driver.
