Learn about your Shock Absorbers
Why do you need to replace shock absorbers?
Shock absorbers keep your tires in constant contact with the road. Without shock absorbers, vehicles would continue to bounce up and down until all of the spring’s kinetic energy is depleted. Worn shocks can affect a vehicle’s driving and braking. Worn shocks increase the distance it takes for a vehicle to stop because a tire isn’t kept in complete contact with the road. It may also cause the front end of your car to “dive” when braking. Worn shock absorbers also increase the wear on tires and suspension systems. Without shock absorbers, driving, cornering, and braking would be very dangerous.
