Worn shock absorbers? Don't risk it.
Shock absorbers are quite possibly the most misunderstood part of any vehicle's essential systems - most people don't even realise they're designed to keep your tyres firmly on the road where they belong!
Your steering, stability, handling, ride comfort and brakes all count on your shock absorbers to function. Shocks and struts are key components of the suspension system. Replacing worn or inadequate shocks and struts and thoroughly inspecting the entire suspension system will help maintain good vehicle safety and control.
If your shocks display worrying symptoms, you shouldn't delay - came and see the team at KW Auto Repairs & Service in Cairns for a road test by our qualified technicians. There are noticeable signs of excessive shock absorber wear and tear you can keep an eye out for.
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.
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.
Uncomfortable steering wheel vibration could be shock absorbers.
If your car veers in side winds, particularly when the wind isn't so strong, you could have shock absorber problems.
Notice that your car 'rock and rolls' over bumps, railway tracks or uneven surfaces? Not hugging the bends? Time to visit KW Auto Repairs & Service for a checkup!
