Worn Shock Absorbers - Don't Take The Risk.

Shock absorbers are quite possibly the most misunderstood part of any vehicle's essential systems - they are not just for a smooth ride, they keep your tyres safely in contact with the road.

 

What Are Shock Absorbers?

Your steering, stability, handling, ride comfort and brakes all rely on your shock absorbers to function at optimum levels. Shocks and struts are fundamental 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.

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 Port Macquarie Tuning & Mechanical 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.
