A suspension is a complex mechanical system that supports the vehicle’s body and keeps the tire treads in contact with the ground while absorbing road imperfections. Every suspension component plays an important role in providing a smooth and cushy ride, especially when it comes to a full-size pickup truck with decent ground clearance and ability to haul and tow heavy loads, just like the Chevy CK Pickup. Shock absorbers (or simply shocks) and struts are suspension components that convert the vertical movement, which appears when the vehicle goes over a bump, into heat energy and then dissipate it, and thus preventing the vehicle from bouncing. Unlike shocks, which are only intended for damping shock impulses, a strut assembly consists of a shock and spring, and therefore ensures the vertical movement of the wheels and establishes the suspension height.

The Chevy CK may employ either shocks or struts, depending on the model, and during a 38-year CK’s history, they had been evolving to become more reliable and efficient. For instance, in 1990, Chevrolet released a performance-oriented Super Sport version of the CK Pickup equipped with gas-filled shocks that provided improved handling in high-performance and off-road applications. But even if your CK doesn’t have an SS badge on the tailgate, you can still get a set of Chevy CK Pickup performance shocks & struts offered in our store. Made to meet or exceed the modern technology requirements, performance shocks & struts can ensure excellent ride stability when heavily accelerating on rugged terrains or low-grip surfaces, towing or hauling loads. On our digital shelves, you can find a large selection of Chevy CK Pickup performance shocks & struts by some of the most renowned manufacturers in the industry.
