Our expert insights into front shock absorber replacement

Our expert insights into front shock absorber replacement

What are shock absorbers?

They are responsible for your vehicle’s smooth drive over bumpy or uneven roads and are an essential part of your suspension system.

Symptoms of a malfunctioning shock absorber

If your car is providing uncomfortable ride quality and is bouncing excessively, it could be that your shock absorbers aren’t operating correctly. Also, any puddles of oil-like fluid on the road around your wheels could be escaping from leaking shock absorbers.
