China PEUGEOT Strut Mounts Suppliers
The strut body holds the damping unit and fluid. It is made of heavy gauge steel so that it is rigid enough to provide structural support and withstand road shock.
The piston rod of the strut is much larger in diameter than the piston rod of a typical shock absorber. This is to withstand the side load on the strut shaft. A strut shaft will measure up to 7/8" in diameter, while the piston rod of a typical shock measures up to 1/2" diameter.
A coil spring is located between the upper and lower spring seats. It is held there by tension. The lower spring seat is welded to the strut body, while the upper spring seat is kept in place by the upper Strut Mount.
