Symptoms of defective shock absorbers
The following are a few clear indications that your car needs shock absorbers Mansfield from a professional facility like ours.
Longer stopping distance: Besides brake-related problems, damaged front shock absorbers can also increase the braking distance. As the front shocks play an important role in weight distribution and prevent the weight from going forward, you will need replacements soon.
Swerving or nose-diving motion: Worn-out valves or piston seals inside the shock absorbers can cause the fluid motion to become uncontrolled, resulting in extreme movement of the piston on applying the brakes.
Knocking sounds when driving over bumps: Damaged shock absorbers will hinder vehicle motion; if your car makes a knocking sound and judders hard up and down, it has defective shock absorbers.
Cracked bushing: The shock absorbers have attachment points with rubber bushings. If these crack, you will hear a tapping noise whenever your vehicle drives over bumps.
