I was wondering if someone could explain to me the difference between foamcell and gas shockers, also their relevant merits.

Thank alex

Foamcell and gas are two ways to prevent airation of the oil medium. The gas is meant to retard the oil from foaming when heated with work done. The foamcell acheives this by suspending the oil medium in a foam like matrix, again to try and stop the oil foaming. Different shockers suit different vehicles just like tyres suit different vehicles than others. But, there is always a point where no amount of anti-foaming methods can cancel out extreme conditions and varying working environments.

Just to add to it, does anyone have a link to an explanation of the various types of shocks and their merits. I'd be keen to know the difference between Hydraulic, gas and foam cell and in what situations they perform best.

Cheers. Mick
