What are shock absorbers?

pic-what-are-shocksShock absorbers are as vital a component as your vehicle’s steering system, tyres and brakes, all of which do not function properly when driving with worn shock absorbers.

It is what we call the Monroe Safety Triangle, encouraging motorists to check tyres, brakes and shock absorbers with every service to ensure optimum stopping, steering and stability.


Shock Absorbers Explained

Shock Absorbers Explained

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.
