Lombard Tyres offer a comprehensive range of top quality shock absorbers for your vehicle. Not only are our shock absorbers affordable but we also offer great specials and promotions on a large range of quality shocks.
Shocks, or shock absorbers, are important for your safety on the road. Their primary function is to keep your car’s wheels in contact with the road. Drivers have a tendency not to notice when their shocks wear out and this is concerning, as most South African vehicles are over three years old. This is when shock absorbers become less effective and worn shocks reduce the driver’s ability to control their car.
Warning Signs of Failing Shocks
How do you know when to replace failing shocks? The obvious answer is if your car comes crashing down dramatically when you go over bumps in the road and you can detect a discernible difference in their performance. Other times it’s not as easy to detect but some things to watch out for include: tires that are unevenly worn-out and oil leaks on the exterior surface of the shock or strut. Other failing shock and strut symptoms include:
Vibrating steering wheel
Unusual squeaking noises when driving
Car bounces to a stop
Practice safe driving and always take care of your shocks. Don’t put yourself, your passengers and other motorists in jeopardy. If you suspect your shock absorbers are failing, take a few minutes now to schedule service to have your shocks and struts evaluated.
Lombard Tyres offers a comprehensive range of top quality shocks at affordable prices nationwide; including Gabriel shocks and Monroe shocks available at most of our fitment centres.
