Worn Shock Absorbers - Don't Take The Risk.

Shock absorbers are quite possibly the most misunderstood part of any vehicle's essential systems - it's important to remember they are there 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 in order to work properly. Shocks and struts are vital workings 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?

The best way to test your shock absorbers is to visit the team at A & A Automotive Repairs in Albury South for a road test by our qualified technicians. There are noticeable signals of excessive shock absorber wear and tear you might notice:

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 A & A Automotive Repairs 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.
