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.
Takes a lot of stress away
I would definitely recommend this company: knowing someone was keeping an eye on everything to make sure I wasn't being overcharged for parts and labour takes a lot of stress out of having the work done. I felt really well looked after. Thank you Fixter.
Excellent service. On time to pick up my car & drop it back. Full service cost £179, main dealer quoted me £700-lots different!
Just had my MOT done through Fixter for the first time. It took about 5 minutes of my time in total to book, hand over the key, and get it back when the car was returned. So I was able to carry on looking after my 2 year old. Total game-changer!
No need to drive to a garage
Can't get more convenient than someone turning up, taking the car from the house for its MOT and returning it a few hours later. No having to drive to a garage (often miles from anywhere or in the middle of an industrial estate) or hanging around waiting.
I literally cannot fault them
This is the 3rd time I have used Fixter and I recommend to everyone. It makes getting an MOT super easy for me. Everyone I speak to on the phone is incredibly helpful and polite, and they seem to be the most cost effective. I literally cannot fault them.

Front shock absorber replacement
What does a front shock absorber do?
Your shock absorbers are part of the suspension system that smoothes out the bumpiness of an uneven road to provide you with a comfortable ride.
A shock absorber is a gas or oil filled tube that is compressed by a piston to dissipate kinetic energy and regulate the rebounding your car will suffer when driving over potholed, bumpy or uneven ground.
What happens when we replace your shock absorbers?
Our efficient and fully qualified mechanics will examine or test-drive your car to establish the cause of the problem.
Wherever required, a shock absorber will be replaced, and you’ll be advised of any other connected or associated problems arising from its malfunction.
You will also be advised of any other parts that may need to be replaced for the best operation and health of your vehicle.
Once the faulty shock absorber has been replaced, our mechanics will test it thoroughly to ensure the correct running of the new part and make any adjustments required for its premium operation.
What causes a shock absorber to stop working correctly?
A shock absorber will fail to operate correctly if the fluid leaks. This can be due to poor or damaged seals.
A shock absorber will also fail to function properly if it becomes damaged, bent or broken due to continual wear, general use or accident damage.
Smaller internal parts are likely to wear out in time and cause the improper operation of the complete component.
Symptoms of a malfunctioning front shock absorber
Excessive bouncing and an uncomfortable ride
If your car is bouncing excessively and providing uncomfortable ride quality, then there’s a good chance your shock absorbers aren’t operating correctly.
The car feels unstable
When driving around corners or over uneven ground and the car feels unstable then your suspension could be damaged.
Driving over humps is difficult
If driving over humps, sleeping policemen or raised road elements causes problems, your shock absorbers could be damaged.
If you spot signs of leaking
If you notice puddles of oil-like fluid on the road around your wheels, your shock absorbers could be leaking.
If your wheels leave the ground
In circumstances when your tyres lose contact with the road going over bumpy surfaces, sharp bridges or raised ground, your suspension isn’t working properly.
How often should shock absorbers need replacing?
You can expect shock absorbers to last at least 50k miles. Your owner’s manual may specify a different mileage or duration, as this figure is only a guideline. You should also have your shock absorbers checked after heavy contact with potholes, curbs or large rocks in the road.
The law, vehicle regulations and your MOT
Car suspension is a common reason for MOT failures. Broken or faulty shock absorbers, including oil leaks, will be a definite fail for an MOT.
The cost of replacing your front shock absorber
The typical cost of replacing a condenser varies between £200 and £250.
For example, an Audi A1 S Line would have a dealer price of £255.23, yet Fixter will carry out the same work for only £206—a 19% saving!
Changing the front shock absorber in a Fiat 500l Pop Star will cost you £268.06 with your dealer, but only £216.00 with Fixter—another superb saving of 19%!
When you choose Fixter to find you a great deal and a premium mechanic to carry out your front shock absorber replacement, you can expect to save around £40 from an average dealer price. That’s a typical saving in the region of 15–20%.
The Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. is a Japanese multinational automobile manufacturer, established over 85 years ago, in 1933.

How popular is Nissan in the United Kingdom?
Nissan has always been a popular household name, and recently a bestseller to boot, with around 1.7million vehicles on the UK roads today.
Their introduction to the SUV market happened in 2007 with the Qashqai, and in 2018 it was announced as the 4th best-selling car in the UK.
Stylish well-priced cars for the road, off-road and the track
Nissan’s various sized and styled SUVs are well priced with something for both urban and adventure seeking drivers. The British built Nissan Qashqai has made great waves since its introduction and its smaller compact crossover cousin, the Nissan Juke, isn’t going to be too far behind for long.
Nissan’s latest electric models
The Nissan Leaf is an all-electric compact hatchback that is leading the way in this fast-growing and competitive market. It became the world’s best selling electric car in 2014, holding 45% of the all-electric car market.
Nissan’s second zero emissions vehicle is the E-NV200 Combi, a 5- or 7-seater MPV utilising the same technologies as the ground- and record-breaking Leaf.
The Nissan GT-R: true track performance
With increased torque and horsepower, the latest GT-R delivers up to 3.8-litres of twin-turbo V6 performance, an incredibly clean drag coefficient providing more consistent downforce, and utilising Nissan’s Vehicle Dynamic Control to consistently monitor steering and braking, this Nissan technology automatically makes compensations to oversteer, understeer, engine speed and braking to provide maximum performance with minimum effort.
And if you can’t quite stretch to the £80k+ price tag for your performance sports car, then the Nissan 370Z could be a more affordable option starting at the lower base price of £29k.
