What are shock absorbers?

Monroe Safety Triangle

3 sides to safer motoring

Shock absorbers, brakes and tyres are essential to your motoring safety. Shock absorbers keep your wheels in contact with the road without them your brakes and tyres simply can't do their job!


At 50kmh, just one worn shock absorber can increase your stopping distance by up to 2 metres!


Worn shock absorbers can cause your tyres to lose contact with the road dramatically affecting steering.


Worn shock absorbers cause excessive sway around corners making the car a lot less stable.
