Magnetic Ride 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 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 do Magnetic Ride Shocks 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.
