What are shoCks?

Shock absorbers are as vital a component as your vehicle’s steering system, tyres and brakes, none of which will 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.

Just to be on the safe side

Monroe and other leading automotive experts recommend that you have a trained specialist inspect your shock absorbers for signs of wear every 20,000km.

Safety Triangle

Stopping, steering and stability are essential to your safety on and off the road. If any part of this safety triangle stops working properly, you will be putting yourself – and others – at real risk.

The signs of worn shock absorbers

Although the best way to test your shock absorbers is through a qualified technician, there are some very distinctive signs of excessive shock absorber wear you can keep an eye out for.

Shock absorbers explained

Shock absorbers help to control the movement of your vehicle’s suspension, playing an important role in your vehicle’s ability to accelerate, travel and stop with safety and control.
