This damper is from the suspension & subframe section in the Rolls-Royce & Bentley parts catalogues for models built between 1965 to 1980.
Dampers perform an important role in the suspension system of your car - they are shock absorbers that ultimately make your driving experience more comfortable. Otherwise known as dampeners or struts, dampers are pistons that operate inside a cylinder that is filled with oil, or with both oil and gas (the latter configuration tends to be more efficient).
They are designed, by way of an up-and-down movement within the cylinder, to reduce the effects of spring oscillations caused by bumps in the road, so they are constantly working to keep your car level with the road and comfortable to drive. Failing dampers will tend to make your suspension feel 'soft' and you will notice shocks to the suspension system more frequently when you are on the road.
