Scion vehicle is equipped with some shock absorbers which help the vehicle and the passengers not to feel the destructive vibration caused by road irregularities. These are the real shock absorber installed to the vehicle's suspension system. There are also the so-called shock absorbers mounted at the foremost and rearmost portions of the Scion, the Scion bumpers. Why are they considered are shock absorbers? That's because the bumper also absorbs damaging energy. When collision occurs, the bumper absorbs the impact before it goes to the engine and the passenger compartment. To efficiently do that, the Scion bumper must be securely installed to the chassis with the aid of the Scion bumper bracket. Scion bumper bracket is made of strong metal enough to help the bumper absorb the collision impact efficiently without falling off. The main purpose of having bumper brackets on Scion vehicle is to connect the bumper to the auto body. Both the bumper mounted at the front of the vehicle and at the rear portion is supported with bumper brackets. To make this possible, the bumper brackets are composed of different kinds of brackets. There is the bracket mounting that is rectangular in shape. Another is the bracket support which is used to mount other bracket types. Bracket stay is also included. This holds the bumper and is shaped like a human arm. There is as well the bracket reinforcement that holds the bumper to the frame of Scion vehicle further. All these brackets compose the whole bumper bracket assembly and they are equally significant to the vehicle. However, just like any other auto part, the Scion bumper brackets are not made to last for the life of the vehicle. If rust attacks these metal-made parts, expect it to start becoming weak. The bumper brackets can also get damaged because high-impact collision. These should not give you worries, though. You can always have them replaced with the aftermarket Scion bumper brackets offered by our online store.
"I am very satisfied with the tailgate handle I ordered from Car Stuff and the prompt attention to the delivery of the item. I wasn't home when it first arrived, and the item was not left on my porch for someone to steal. Instead, a note with an 800# was left so I could arrange delivery. The product is excellent, exactly what I needed!"
