Shock Absorber Fitment & Testing

How do you know if your shock absorbers need replacing?

Look out for these signs:

  1. When your steering wheel vibrates on smooth roads
  2. Excessive bouncing when you hit a bump.
  3. Stiff or hard to turn steering wheel.
  4. Your car’s nose dives or lurches forward when braking.
  5. Uneven tyre wear.
  6. Clunking sounds when hitting a bump.
  7. Leaking fluid due to a worn seal on your shock.
  8. It takes a longer braking distance before the car comes to a stop.

What happens if you don't change your shock absorbers?

Reduced braking efficiency – Worn shocks and struts can have an adverse effect on the performance of your brakes. Your vehicle's stopping distance may increase, which can be critical in an emergency braking situation. You're also at increased risk of skidding on wet roads.
