When your car suspension feels like a bouncy castle, stop by Repco for a quality shock absorber
Stay in tune with the road when you upgrade your suspension system at Repco
Keeping your vehicle planted to the road is critical for safe motoring and when your vehicle shock absorbers are past their best your handling and braking can be severely compromised. Stay in contact with the road with Repco's range of replacement shock absorbers and ensure the smooth ride and stability that comes with the perfect shock absorber for your vehicle.
So what do shock absorbers do?
How shock absorbers work are by converting the kinetic energy of vehicle movement to thermal energy via a pressure tube filled with hydraulic fluid or nitrogen gas. Older style conventional shock absorbers utilise hydraulic fluid and modern units can comprise either fluid or nitrogen gas. As the piston moves within the body of the shock absorber this movement will absorb energy.
Why do I need shock absorbers?
To provide both a smoother ride and ensure your tyres are firmly planted on the road surface, shock absorbers provide this vital connection. By ensuring your shock absorbers are in good working order your vehicle suspension and steering will provide the optimum control and response through the steering wheel to your driving needs.
Shock absorbers wear over time as with other main components in your car's suspension system. This can be displayed as uneven tyre wear, increased body roll or increased vibrations through the steering wheel. Having both front shock absorbers and rear shocks replaced as pairs ensures uniform performance across the front end or rear end of your vehicle.
