Whether your vehicle has car struts or shocks, they wear down eventually as the miles and years add up. Although some mechanics say that car struts and shocks don’t have a specific maintenance schedule, many auto repair experts advise that they should be replaced between 50,000 and 100,000 miles. If you drive over bumpy streets and poor roads on a consistent basis, then they will need to be replaced more often than if driving short distances every day.

Did you know that the car struts (or shocks) are what keeps your vehicle connected to the road? Along with the many components that make up the steering and suspension systems, keeping them in good condition is vital in keeping your ride smooth and safe. Shocks and struts also . . .

  • Help maintain consistent handling and braking
  • Control spring and suspension movements, such as bouncing, swaying, or rolling
  • Reduce brake “dive” and acceleration “squat”
  • Enhance the lifespan of other components of the suspension system
  • Prevent gradual deterioration of ride quality

If you notice that your vehicle is not performing as well as it should (your car should be performing like the examples above), it may be time to replace the struts or shocks. Do any of the warning signs listed below look familiar?

  • Poor steering response.
  • Stiff steering.
  • Vehicle sways or leans when turning and changing lanes.
  • The vehicle bounces excessively when driving, especially on bumpy roads.
  • Braking performance is unstable.
