What are shock absorbers?

When a car is moving over rough or uneven surfaces, shock absorbers help to stop the car bouncing or vibrating too much and ensure that the tyres have full contact with the road surface all the time.

Why are shock absorbers important?

Enormous demands are placed on certain parts of cars when being driven. Shock absorbers are found on a car’s suspension, where they take the strain of all the constant bouncing up and down of the vehicle. Most cars’ wheels also have them. Worn shock absorbers will affect the car’s handling and braking, which can reduce your safety.

How do shock absorbers work?

Shock absorbers have a piston inside them that moves up and down in line with the suspension and, depending on the vehicle, hydraulic fluid or air chambers absorb the energy from the road caused by vibration.

What causes shock absorber problems?

  • If a car hits a pothole or curb, a shock absorber might get damaged.
  • When a car is in an accident, there is a chance that its shock absorbers will be damaged.
  • If the springs in the piston of a car’s shock absorber break or the hydraulic fluid or air leaks out.

What are the signs that a car needs a shock absorber repair?

  • It’s hard to know if there is a problem with your shock absorbers as they usually fail over time.
  • The pattern of tyre wear looks like cups or is “scalloping,” which is when the tread looks wavy all around, because the tyre isn’t able to stay firmly on the road.
  • If a car feels different to drive on a familiar road, its shock absorbers might be worn or damaged
  • When a car’s stopping distance is up to 20% further than usual.
  • If a car bounces more than it normally would while driving over bumps.
  • Whenever a car swings up and down like a boat.
  • If a car swerves and dips when the brakes are used.
  • On those occasions when tyres start squealing when a car goes around corners.
  • If a car’s suspension squeaks.

How long does a shock absorber repair take?

  • Replacing a shock absorber is a relatively simple job to perform.
  • A standalone shock absorber is connected to a car’s suspension and frame and can be changed quickly.
  • A strut shock absorber is harder to change because suspension coil springs and the strut unit have to be removed to get the work done.

How much do shock absorbers cost?

  • The cost of an individual shock absorber can be up to £200, but labour needs to be factored in.
  • Buying shock absorbers in pairs will lower the cost.
  • When shock absorbers are replaced, the suspension mounts are removed and should be changed at the same time, which will add a little more to the cost.

About Skoda

Skoda has a long and storied history producing cars that are sold around the world! One of the five oldest companies producing cars today, with an unbroken history right alongside Daimler, Opel, Peugeot, and Tatra, the Skoda Works were initially established as an arms manufacturing plant in 1859. Since 1990 they’ve been part of the Volkswagen group, and this Czech brand is now known for producing a fine range of excellent value, high quality cars.

The current range comprises everything from the compact Fabia to the incredibly spacious Superb Estate with a mix of off-road and high-performance cars thrown in for good measure. The practical Yeti is an agile SUV with off-road capability, while the Octavia VRS offers sharp sports car speed.

On top of all that, customer satisfaction has consistently helped Skoda rank highly against more established competitors.

What do you need from your garage?

This might sound like a question with an obvious answer: you need a garage that can service or repair your car quickly and at a good price. But think again and you may realise there are other factors that affect your choice of garage in Norwich. If you need to bring your son or daughter with you when you take your car in, are there toys in the waiting room? If you’re dropping the car off between school and work, can you pick up a cup of coffee while you’re there? Might the garage even collect your car and drop it back at your house after the work is done? You can find answers to all these questions on BookMyGarage.
