Shock Absorbers

In their simplest form, shock absorbers are hydraulic (oil) pump like devices that help to control the impact and rebound movement of your vehicle's springs and suspension. Along with smoothening out bumps and vibrations, the key role of the shock absorber is to ensure that the vehicle’s tyres remain in contact with the road surface at all times, which ensures the safest control and braking response from your car.

 

Steering: Worn shocks and struts can allow excessive body roll when turning, which affects the vehicle's ability to safely steer around objects in the road. 
 
Stopping: Worn shocks and struts can allow too much weight transfer to the front wheels during braking, which could result in a measurable increase in stopping distance.
 
Stability: Worn shocks and struts can allow excessive roll, sway and bounce while the vehicle is in motion, which reduces the driver's control.

 

You should also consider the following safety points!

 

Braking Distance: Worn out shock absorbers will reduce your tyres contact area with the road.  This reduces the efficiency of your brakes which increases the distance it will take you to stop your vehicle when you most need too.        

 

Reduction of ABS Performance: There is little point in having an advanced electronic braking system on your car if the electronics don't have the equipment to work with.  ABS is designed to work with your car in a serviceable condition, if your shock absorbers are worn out the ABS system will not be able to achieve the optimum braking force which in turn results in a longer stopping distance.          

 

Wet Weather Driving: If your shock absorbers are worn out you are much more likely to skid in wet or slippery road conditions, or when driving on a loose surface.       

 

False Economy: A worn shock absorber usually increases the wear rate to your tyres and can cause other more expensive suspension components to break long before their normal service life is over.
