What does a Shock Absorber do on a Car?

Shocks are crucial parts of the vehicle suspension system, designed to maintain contact between the wheels of a car and the ground beneath them, by absorbing energy through the coil spring. 

Together with suspension struts and other suspension parts and components, shock absorbers allow for smooth and comfortable driving conditions, but due to the pressure applied to these parts, they are susceptible to wear and tear.

How do I know if the Shocks on my Car need Replacing?

Look out for these 6 signs that your shocks absorbers or struts need replacing:

  • Your ride is bouncy - The most obvious problem with worn shocks is a bouncy or bumpy ride
  • Steering issues - If your steering doesn't feel secure when turning
  • Braking problems - If your car lurches forward when you brake
  • Leaking fluid - If your shock absorbers are leaking
  • Unusual tyre wear - Failing shocks can put your wheel alignment out which can then in turn wear your tyres quicker
  • Mileage - You should be looking to change your shocks and struts around every 50,000 miles

If you notice any of these signs, it might be time to get replacement shocks and components for your car.

You'll notice that you won't be able to control or stop the vehicle safely with damaged shock absorbers. Putting other road users, pedestrians, passengers, and yourself at risk. You can search easily for the correct shocks for your car with our search tool, giving you complete peace of mind.
