Why check your shocks?
Auckland Shock Absorber Service
Shock absorbers or ‘shocks’ assist in controlling the movement of your car’s suspension and springs. They play an vital role in your vehicle's ability to accelerate, manoeuvre and stop. They do this by keeping your tyres in contact with the road at all times. Any time that a tyre's contact with the ground is broken or reduced, your ability to drive, steer and brake is seriously compromised.
At 50kmh, a single worn shock absorber can add up to 2 metres to your stopping distance, those 2 metres could be vital when it comes to stopping for a pedestrian crossing or a child that runs onto the road. Call into Autoland, North Shore mechanic to make sure your shocks are in good shape.
Worn shock absorbers are also a major contributor to tyre wear, so as well as safety and control you'll also get better value and longer life from your tyres.
Monroe shocks (a leading manufacturer of shock absorbers) and other leading automotive experts recommend that you have a qualified mechanic, such as Autoland, North Shore mechanic, check your shock absorbers for signs of wear every 20,000 km.
Monroe shocks have come up with a 'The Safety Triangle' including stopping, steering and stability, which means your brakes, tyres and shock absorbers need to work together to ensure your vehicle’s safety. If any part of The Safety Triangle stops working properly, you will be putting yourself - and others - at risk.
