Don't Risk Worn Shock Absorbers.

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, handling, stability, ride comfort and brakes all depend on your shock absorbers to function. Shocks and struts are crucial components 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 Symptoms of Worn Shocks?

If you are concerned about your Shock Absorbers you should visit the the team at Porters Mechanical Repairs in Kyneton for a road test by our qualified technicians. There are signs of excessive shock absorber wear and tear to watch out for:

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 Porters Mechanical 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.
