Whether your vehicle has shocks or struts, they are both parts of the suspension system that keeps your vehicle stable on the road. Along with the other components that make up the steering and suspension systems, including the car axles, they play a major role in keeping your ride smooth and safe.

When do car shocks need to be replaced, you ask? Some vehicles may need to have the shocks replaced at 30,000 miles, while other vehicles can go as long as 60,000 to 100,000 miles. However, because they wear so gradually over time, by the time a problem is noticed with worn shocks, the damage could already have taken place in other parts of the suspension system, such as the car axles or steering system.

You may start to notice . . .

  • Slow response when steering and loss of control.
  • Car sways when turning and changing lanes.
  • Excessive bouncing when hitting bumps.
  • Braking performance is unpredictable.

The type of vehicle you drive, how you drive, and the condition of the roads you drive on affects how fast or slow shocks actually wear. Driving a sedan over bumpy streets and rough roads will cause its shocks to wear faster than driving a big truck over the same roads.

Here are the benefits of keeping your suspension system in the best condition possible:

  • Maintains consistent handling and braking performance
  • Keeps tires connected to the road
  • Controls spring and suspension movements
  • Reduces vehicle bounce, sway, brake dive, and acceleration squat
  • Prolongs the life of other components in the suspension system
  • Keeps your ride more comfortable
