Shock Absorbers and Air Springs
In trucks and buses shock absorbers are primarily used to dampen the bouncing motion of the vehicle’s body after it encounters a bump in travel.
The technology surrounding Shock Absorbers has been accelerating exponentially over the last couple of years, with automotive and heavy-duty manufacturers investing significantly in this area as ‘ride-quality’ becomes of ever increasing importance in driver-retention and driver safety.

When should you replace a Shock Absorber & Air Spring?
The first indicator that your Shock Absorbers are operating at a sub-standard level and are showing signs of defects will likely come from your driver. Due to the similarities in drive experience it is possible to sometimes confuse a shock absorber failure with a suspension failure.
The key indicators that your shock absorber or air springs might need replacing can include:
Vibration in the cabin while driving
Increased stopping distances when depressing the brakes
Uneven tyre wear
