Shocks and Struts Explained

Shocks and struts dampen road impacts, support the vehicle's weight, and ensure good traction in challenging terrain. They are vital suspension components that should be at their best for safe driving.

Shocks and Struts Maintenance

Maintenance begins with routine inspections and ends with replacement service when shocks and struts lose integrity. Shocks and struts can last for 75,000 miles or more in favorable conditions, or much less in harsh conditions. It is important to know the warning signs of faulty shocks and struts, and get maintenance promptly if they show up, to preserve driving comfort and safety.

What are the Warning Signs of Faulty Shocks and Strut?

Faulty shocks and struts create an unsafe driving condition because the suspension and handling are compromised. It is the best decision to get shocks and struts inspected promptly and replaced if necessary when they show any signs of losing integrity. Here are the warning signs that show up when shocks and struts go bad:

  • Fluid leaking on the outside
  • Rapid or unusual tire wear
  • Front-end bounces excessively on hard stops
  • Rear-end squats excessively when accelerating
  • Excessive tipping when cornering
  • Unstable handling at highway speeds

Shocks and Strut Replacement Service Overview
