When was the last time you had your suspension checked?

Your suspension system does more than make your ride smoother. It keeps you safe and without it your tyres and brakes won't work as well. The suspension system reduces the impact of rough surfaces, allows your vehicle to corner with minimum roll or sway, stop with a minimum of brake dive, and accelerate with a minimum of acceleration squat. This dynamic control keeps the tyres in contact with the road and if it is not correctly maintained can lead to irregular tyre wear.

Under normal driving conditions your shocks absorb thousands of impacts of varying intensity. As a result they wear. Monroe, a global supplier of suspension parts, recommends that you have your shocks checked every 20,000 kilometres and have them changed every 80,000 km.

JAX Tyres in offer suspension servicing and repairs including replacement shock absorbers, struts, springs and bushes.

Shocks and struts are important for your driving safety. Their function is to keep the tyres on the road by controlling spring and suspension movements and by maintaining a vertical load on the tyres.
