Shock absorber help to control the impact and rebound movement of the vehicle’s springs and suspension. It help to smoothen out bumps and vibration and most importantly ensure the vehicle tyres remain in contact with the road surface at all times which ensure safe control and braking response from your car.
Worn shock absorbers can add as much as 20% to your stopping distance. In time of emergency this distance may be the crucial factor to your safety .
How do I know the shock absorber is wear?
- Bonnet of your car nose dive when you brake
- Vehicle swerves under brakes
- Steering wheel vibration
- When the car “rock & rolls” over humps or uneven surfaces
- Uneven wear of the tyre , bald patches.
A wear shock absorber may have oil leakage or excessive bouncing or sign of uneven tyre wear. During the regular maintenance our mechanic will inspect shock absorber for sign of wear and highlight to you if it need to be replace in order to ensure your safety.
