So why do you need to change your shock absorbers?
If the shock absorbers in your car fail, the vehicle will become unstable and difficult to drive. If you drive with a worn or leaking shock absorber, it could seriously affect the safety of your braking and handling. It is a legal requirement to have your shock absorbers checked during every MOT. Your shock absorbers use hydraulic fluid to lessen the rebound of the suspension springs when you drive over uneven roads. Without shock absorbers, your car would be very difficult to control. Having your shock absorbers checked and replaced when necessary will prolong the life of other suspension parts and drive systems.
During every MOT.
