Jounce

Jounce is the motion of a wheel that compresses its suspension. Full jounce refers to a wheel that is at the upper limits of its travel. A jounce bumper or jounce stop is an elastic "cushion" used to stiffen the suspension gradually as it approaches the end of its jounce travel. Jounce is the opposite of rebound.
