The shock absorber is a key part of any vehicles suspension which help to dampen the impact from all those bumps in the road, keeping the vehicle stable to deliver a smoother ride. Without the shock absorber, the vehicles wheel and axle would simply bounce up and down without any control.
Over time, shock absorbers do wear out. Telltale signs the shocks are worn are abnormal tyre wear, a stiffer ride or excessive lean when steering. If you push firmly on your bumper and your vehicle bounces more than once, it is a key indication the shock absorbers need replacing.
If your shock absorbers have reached the end of it’s life cycle, it can be easily replaced at low cost with moderate mechanical knowledge.
