Replace shock absorbers Berwick


When you drive on a straight even flat road, your shock absorbers can move up to 1000 times per km.

Every time they move it causes the valves to flex slightly, and this eventually weakens the valves which reduce the damping efficiency.

Some effects of worn shockers include:

  • increased road noise.
  • reduced ride quality.
  • accelerated tyre wear.

When the shock absorber is worn, the spring is able to continue to bounce after hitting a bump, and this
bouncing movement reduces the tyre contact with the road.

A reduced contact patch increases the risk of losing control during cornering, and extends stopping distances under braking.

Shock absorbers should be inspected as part of a routine maintenance plan and replaced when found to be worn.
