Ranges - For each driving a shock absorber

The various functions of the shock absorber, which is an integral part of the vehicle suspension, must be suited to the style of driving.
Those functions are :

  • Stability : Limitation of the oscillations due to road conditions.
  • Comfort : Braking of the vehicle movements.
  • Road-Holding : Elimination of the wheel bounces. Constant grip of the tyre.


Normal Driving
To meet the security functions of a shock, and to meet the replacement market demand, Record-France develops shock absorbers for which the functioning and the operating forces match normal and usual driving. The damping forces are calculated by the Research and Development department according to the vehicle and its ageing, to obtain an optimal passenger comfort, and an impressive road holding.

Sporting Driving  logo-sp
The SP type shock absorber has been especially engineered and manufactured in a sporting or special driving view. The damping values are adapted to increased safety in performance. The SP shock absorbers are to be fitted with springs, lowering or not, the specifications of which are consistent with the original shock absorbers.

Load Compensating  logo-rp


The RP type shock absorber, with reactivity in progressiveness, has been especially engineered and manufactured by Record-France for people who, regularly, load their vehicle, or tow trailers or caravans. The RP damper is the ideal solution for professional, family and leisure activities and occupations. This shock absorber, with its polyurethane spring, cancels the bumping effects, corrects the vehicle height, relieves the suspension, balances the vehicle.


The shock absorbers range proposed by Record-France, still includes applications for light vehicles, passenger cars and commercials, from the thirties to the seventies. Thanks to its structure and its know-how, the company can furnish shocks for classic vehicles, with adapted technologies according to the vehicle part wear and to the road condition improvements.

The Record-France R&D department develops specific telescopic shock absorbers according to special demands. Record-France designs and produces various types of shock absorbers, for various types of use and driving, in small and medium size series, according to the customer specifications = "tailor-made" technology.
