Not only are shock absorbers vital for effective steering and safe braking, but they smooth out the bumps and afford you a comfortable drive. Shock absorbers are pretty important and if they’re not working correctly can substantially increase your car’s stopping distance which is clearly very dangerous.
So what are the warning signs of defective shock absorbers?
There are a few to look out for:
Your car isn’t hugging the road on bends
Your car tyres have bald patches
Your car dips forward when you brake
Your car is very unstable in wind
Your steering wheel vibrates while driving
