  • When to replace shock absorbers

    If you follow these 6 steps, knowing when to replace shock absorbers will become a walk in the park #MidasServiceParts Don’t forget to come to Randburg Midas for all of your suspension needs. When driving, a vehicle’s shocks are always in use. Like many other car components, overtime this continuous use will lead to general wear and tear and they’ll lose their ability to function properly. There are signs you need new shocks that are right under your nose. Once you know them you’ll be able to determine if you need to take your vehicle to the workshop. Here are 6 tell-tale signs you can notice for when to replace shock absorbers. Longer stopping distance Having worn shock absorbers on your vehicle can increase your stopping distance by up to 20%. As you increase your travelling speed this will also increase the distance it takes your vehicle to completely stop.

This is a tell-tale sign of worn shocks and can be easily fixed with a shock replacement.  Rocking & rattling If your vehicle rattles and rocks over bumps, railway tracks and uneven surfaces it is highly likely your shocks are heavily worn. Along with an unpleasant ride this rocking and rolling can be putting unwanted pressure on other car components and should be seen to as soon as possible. Uneven tyre wear Can you see bald patches or uneven wear on your tyres? This usually means your tyres don’t have optimal contact with the road, which can be caused by worn shocks. This will have an affect on car control and tyre grip and both…
