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.

    Excellent service. Pick up/Drop off person was polite and efficient, turnaround time for MOT + Major Service was 4 hours, price was very affordable and reasonable. All in all, I wouldnt go back to Halfords/Kwikfit, will be sure to use Fixter again.

    I was a bit worried about using this service because I hadn't use them before. But it is really good because I was in work and would have found it really hard to get away but fixter picked my car up and dropped it off. Highly recommend them.
