Shock 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
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.
Shock Absorber Safety
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 to maintain good vehicle safety and control.
Shock absorbers are as important to your motoring safety as brakes and tyres. Shock absorbers keep your wheels in contact with the road; without them, your brakes and tyres simply can’t do their job. PLUS, they help you maintain control of your car AND ensure a comfortable ride by ‘dampening’ the bumps and vibrations of driving.
Technology Driven Safety
Technology driven safety are three words that most aptly describe the Monroe commitment to product research and development. Many Monroe shock absorber products incorporate world first and patented technologies.
