The function of shock absorbers is to make sure the tires of your vehicle stay on the ground consistently. They do this by managing how the suspension and springs move.
This allows your tires to always be making contact with the road whether driving straight, cornering, going over hills, or driving on a bumpy road. All the vibrations and shakiness from driving on such a road get absorbed by a vehicle’s springs and shock absorbers, hence the name.
SIGNS OF A BAD ABSORBER
1 – Knocking Noise: When going over various bumps, speed bumps, or potholes and your hear a knocking sound, it likely means you have worn shock absorbers. The noise may be the meal coil springs actually hitting your car’s chassis.
2 – Vibrations: The shock absorber has valves and piston seals inside of it. If either one of them gets too worn, the flow of fluid won’t be controlled, and it will move through the piston seal and/or valve.
Once that happens, the steering wheel will vibrate each time you drive over a bump, regardless of how big or small it is.
3 – Fluid Leak: The shock absorber’s body has seals to protect it from leaking. After a while, these seals will start to leak fluid along the side of the shock absorber’s body until it falls on the ground.
4 – Swerving: If you step on the brake pedal while turning, you may experience swerving or nose diving. When the shock absorber is faulty, the weight of your car will move in the opposite direction while you’re turning.
5 – Brakes React Slowly: If you step on the brake pedal and your car takes a while to slow down and stop, then there’s a possibility your shock absorber might be faulty.
6 – Uneven Tire Wear: Since a bad shock absorber will cause your tires to be unevenly placed on the road, your car will begin to bounce as you drive on it.
Only certain areas of your tire will actually be touching the road, which will result in these areas becoming more worn than the areas which are not touching the road. Therefore, you will have uneven tire wear, whether it be on the inside or outside.
