Why do I need to have my shock absorbers checked?

Making sure your shock absorber is in good condition is very important for a comfortable and safe ride. Over time, these components can wear out due to constant use and exposure to road conditions. If left unchecked, worn shock absorbers can lead to a bumpy and uncomfortable driving experience, reducing your control over the car and increasing the risk of accidents.

Additionally, faulty shock absorbers can cause uneven tyre wear, affecting your vehicle’s handling and stability. Regular inspection and maintenance of your shock absorbers can help identify issues early on, preventing further damage and giving you optimal performance. By having your shock absorbers checked regularly, you can enjoy a safer, more comfortable driving experience. So, don’t wait until it’s too late – schedule a check-up for your suspension today and drive with confidence.

What are some signs of worn shock absorbers / suspension?

Here are the danger signs of worn shock absorbers:

Excessive bouncing or swaying when driving over bumps.
Increased body roll when turning corners.
Nose-diving or rear-end squatting when braking or accelerating.
Uneven tyre wear, like bald spots or cupping.
Decreased ride comfort, with more vibrations and bumps felt inside the car.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to get your shock absorbers checked by us. Ignoring these warning signals could affect your car’s stability and safety on the road.

What do shock absorbers do?

Shock absorbers help your car handle bumps and keep your ride smooth. They work by absorbing shocks from the road, like bumps or potholes, so you don’t feel them as much inside the car. This helps keep your tyres on the road and gives you better control over your vehicle. In simple terms, shock absorbers make your drive more comfortable and safer by reducing the jolts and bumps you feel while driving.

Can you drive car if shock absorbers need replacing?

It’s not recommended to drive your car if the shock absorbers need replacing. Worn-out shock absorbers can affect your car’s handling and stability, making it unsafe to drive, especially at high speeds or on uneven roads. Additionally, driving with worn shock absorbers can cause further damage to other parts of your car’s suspension system. It’s best to have your shock absorbers checked and replaced by a mechanic if necessary before driving your car.

How often should shock be replaced?

Shock absorbers typically don’t need to be replaced as frequently as other car parts, but they can wear out over time due to factors like mileage, driving conditions, and vehicle age. Generally, it’s recommended to have your shock absorbers inspected by a mechanic every 50,000 to 100,000 kilometres or if you notice any signs of wear or deterioration. If your shocks are worn out or damaged, they should be replaced as soon as possible to maintain your vehicle’s ride comfort, handling, and safety on the road.

What are the symptoms of bad shock absorbers?

Signs of bad shock absorbers are:

Lots of bouncing: If your car keeps bouncing a lot after going over bumps, it might mean the shocks are worn.

Uneven tyre wear: Worn shocks can make your tyres wear out unevenly.

Car dips forward when braking: If your car’s front end leans forward when you brake, it could mean the front shocks are worn.

Car leans a lot in corners: When you turn corners, if your car leans a lot to one side, it could be due to worn shocks.

Weird noises or vibrations: Worn shocks might make your car vibrate or make strange noises, especially over bumps.

Should I replace all 4 shocks at the same time?

Yes, it’s usually best to change all four shocks together. Replacing all four shocks at the same time gives your car a balanced performance and handling. If one shock is worn out, the others may not be far behind, so changing them together can improve safety and stability.
