Don’t underestimate the importance of your shock absorbers – most people don’t even realise they’re designed to keep your tyres firmly on the road where they belong

What Are Shock Absorbers?

Your stability, steering, handling, ride comfort and brakes all count on your shock absorbers to work at optimum levels. Shocks and struts are crucial parts of the suspension system. Replacing worn or inadequate shocks and struts and thoroughly inspecting the entire suspension system will help to maintain good vehicle safety and control.

What Are The Signs Of Worn Shock Absorbers?

If you are concerned about your Shock Absorbers you should visit the the team at Kambah Car Care in Kambah for a road test by our qualified technicians. There are noticeable signs of excessive shock absorber wear and tear to watch out for:

Trouble Stopping

Worn shock absorbers can add as much as 20% to your stopping distance. That’s the sort of fault that can be fatal and requires immediate attention.

Nose-diving & Swerving

If the bonnet of your car dips when you brake or slow down, or your vehicle swerves under brakes, you may have a shock absorber problem.

Bad Vibes

Uncomfortable steering wheel vibration could be shock absorbers.

Side Slide

If your car veers in side winds, particularly when the wind isn’t so strong, you could have shock absorber problems.

Shake, Rattle & Roll

Notice that your car ‘rock and rolls’ over bumps, railway tracks or uneven surfaces? Not hugging the bends? Time to visit Kambah Car Care for a check up!

Uneven Tyre Wear

If your tyres are wearing unevenly, particularly if there are bald patches, odds are it’s your shock absorbers.
