What is a shock absorber?
Shock absorbers might not be the most exciting part of a car, but along with tires and brakes they are important elements of the safety of a vehicle. They are hidden beneath a car's wheel arches, so unlike tires are not easy to check regularly for visible signs of damage and wear.

The role of the shock absorber is to keep the car's tires in permanent contact with the road, helping to provide optimum grip, when cornering and braking. Shock absorbers are part of the suspension, so if the shocks are worn, the vehicle's ride and comfort is compromised.

The dangers of worn shock absorbers!
Most people are not even aware of the potential dangers of worn shock absorbers, or that the safety of their vehicle, its occupants and other road users is seriously compromised even if all other safety features are working correctly. An example of the extent of the problem is illustrated by two recent surveys. In Britain, it was found that over 6 million of the 25 million cars on the road had at least one worn shock absorber, while in Belgium, research showed that 20-25% of motorists are driving cars with worn shocks.

Sign of worn shock absorbers!
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.

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

Nose diving and 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.

Shake rattle and roll - Notice that your car ‘rock and rolls’ over bumps, railway tracks or uneven surfaces? Not hugging the bends? Time to get those shock absorbers checked then!

Bad vibes - Uncomfortable steering wheel vibration could be shock absorbers.

Uneven tire wear - If your tires are wearing unevenly, particularly if there are bald patches, odds are it’s your shock absorbers.
