Shock absorbers and struts are safety-related components that help keep vehicles safely on track. When worn out, they can significantly impact braking distance, lateral wind sensitivity and steering control. To make matters worse, tires also wear out faster.
Shock absorbers and struts are safety-related components that help keep vehicles safely on track. Worn-out shock absorbersWhen worn out, they can significantly impact braking distance, tire wear, lateral wind sensitivity and steering control. To make matters worse, tires also wear out faster.
Driver assistance systems like ABS and ESP only work properly when the suspension system delivers correct ‘’information.’’ Malfunctioning shock absorbers or struts distort this information. When carrying out abrupt evasive manoeuvers, there is an increased likelihood of rolling over.
Shocks and struts don’t wear out suddenly. It’s a gradual process. Not surprisingly, their slow deterioration often goes unnoticed. Shock absorbers or struts should be checked every 60,000 km to 80,000 km.
