Magnetic Ride Struts & Shocks
Magnetic Ride Struts and Shocks are now offered in Arnott’s aftermarket suspension product line. Designed as a direct replacement for GM SUVs with the magnetorheological damper system Z95 RPO, Arnott’s OES magnetic shocks provide the same adaptive ride as the OE.
What are Magnetic Ride Struts/Shocks?
Magnetic Ride Shocks consist of a monotube damper filled with a combination of synthetic hydrocarbon oil and readily magnetized iron particles, the sum of which is known as magnetorheological fluid, as well as electromagnetic coils. Maintaining the system are a sensor set and an Electronic Control Unit (ECU).
How does Magnetic Ride dampening work?
If the vehicle sensors sense a change in road conditions, a signal is sent to the ECU. The ECU then determines the electromagnetic current strength required for each shock. When activated, the electromagnetic coils create a magnetic field that instantly magnetizes the iron particles, increasing the viscosity of the magnetorheological fluid and suspension stiffness.
