Shocks worn or wearing out?

You might only be worried about the bumpy ride, but there’s more to worn shocks than a little discomfort.

There’s the strain on your vehicle’s body and the strain on your own body.

Then there’s the safety aspect, of all things the most important.

Why you should get your shocks checked at Motolek

There are a number of benefits to having your shocks checked by the experts.


Worn shocks are one of the most dangerous things a vehicle owner can allow in his life.

It’s not just dangerous for the driver of the vehicle; it’s dangerous for other road users too.

Worn shocks prohibits your bakkie or car from having the reaction it needs to swerve efficiently when something enters your path of travel.

That means you can easily flip the vehicle or run it into oncoming traffic, no matter how good a driver you are.

This could be avoided by ensuring you don’t drive with worn shocks.


It’s obvious that the harder your suspension is, the harder it’ll be on your vehicle.

Body parts will start loosening. Let’s not forget engine parts.

Everything on the car suffers from the harder ride and it won’t be long before your pocket feels the rattle.

Bring in your vehicle and we’ll check your shocks. If it needs replacing we’ll do it for you in no time.


It’s not just your vehicle’s body that takes a beating from worn shocks; your own body will also take a beating.

It sounds like it’s no big deal, but don’t you think life is stressful enough, without you having to give your body a thrashing every time you get into your car?
