Today’s sophisticated vehicle stability control systems help you to safely drive on today’s sometimes dangerous roads. They play an important role in your vehicle’s ability to accelerate, travel and stop with safety and keep you in control by keeping your tyres in contact with the road at all times.
Any time a tyre’s contact with the ground is broken or reduced, your ability to drive, steer and brake is severely compromised.
Monroe and other leading automotive experts recommend you have a trained specialist inspect your suspension system for signs of wear every 20,000 km.
Additionally your car’s suspension system is essential to motoring safety. Shock absorbers keep your wheels in contact with the road. An ineffectual suspension systems means your tyres and brakes can’t do their jobs properly.
- Traveling at 50kph just one worn shock absorber can increase your stopping distance by 2 metres.
- Worn shock absorbers mean your tyres aren’t in contact with the ground as effectively as they could be, drastically impacting braking and steering control.
- Cornering on worn shock absorbers causes excessive sway and poor cornering control.
