Shock Absorbers

MA Engineers provide full repair and replacement of front and rear shock absorbers, ensuring that your suspension is working to an optimum level for safety and efficiency.

Shock absorbers could be the most misunderstood part of a vehicle's essential systems - many people don't even realise they're intended to keep your tyres safely in contact with the road!

What Are Shock Absorbers?

Your stability, steering, handling, ride comfort and brakes all count on your shock absorbers to function at optimum levels. Shocks and struts are important workings of the suspension system. Replacing worn or inadequate shocks and struts and thoroughly inspecting the entire suspension system will help to maintain good vehicle safety and control.

How Do You Tell If Your Shocks Are Worn?

If you notice symptoms you should come and see the team at MA Engineers in Bristol for a road test by our qualified technicians.

There are noticeable signs of excessive shock absorber wear and tear you can keep an eye out for:

Trouble Stopping

Worn shock absorbers can add as much as 20% to your stopping distance. That's the sort of fault that can be fatal and requires immediate attention.

Nose-diving & Swerving

If the bonnet of your car dips when you brake or slow down, or your vehicle swerves under brakes, you may have a shock absorber problem.

Bad Vibes

Uncomfortable steering wheel vibration could be shock absorbers.

Side Slide

If your car veers in side winds, particularly when the wind isn't so strong, you could have shock absorber problems.

Shake, Rattle & Roll

Notice that your car 'rock and rolls' over bumps, railway tracks or uneven surfaces? Not hugging the bends? Time to visit MA Engineers for a check up!

Uneven Tyre Wear

If your tyres are wearing unevenly, particularly if there are bald patches, odds are it's your shock absorbers.
