Coil springs and shock absorbers have two basic functions: keeping the cars wheels in firm contact with the road and to provide a comfortable ride.
Shock absorbers push your wheels into contact with the road allowing you to steer and brake safely. Coil springs support the weight of the vehicle, and compress to absorb any bumps or jolts in the road surface.
Damaged or worn shock absorbers and coil springs can affect your cars handling and stopping distance. They can be easily damaged by rough roads, pot holes & kerbs. This is why at Autowise we recommend these components are replaced in pairs.
