Why are Shocks and Struts Services Important To My Vehicle? 

Shocks and struts are two components of a vehicle’s suspension that, in addition to springs, help keep the vehicle balanced and riding smoothly with all four wheels on the road. Worn-out shocks and struts will make your ride unstable and compromise your vehicle’s safety.

How Often Should I Have My Shocks And Struts Serviced?

Fortunately, shocks and struts tend to wear out slowly and last long. Typically, having them checked every 50,000 miles is best. However, each vehicle’s recommended time for inspection will vary based on model, road, and driving conditions. Therefore, you should check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommendation of when to inspect them.

You should have them inspected if you notice the following:

  • Excessive bouncing of your vehicle.
  • Leaning or swaying of the vehicle when turning corners or changing lanes.
  • The ride seems stiff, less than the standard bouncing.
  • The front of the vehicle dips down, especially when stopping.
  • Poor steering response or noise when steering.
  • The vehicle feels very unstable at high speeds.
