Is your car starting to handle poorly and you feel you are losing control while driving down the road? If you have to grip tightly to the steering wheel, it could be a sign of failing car shocks and car struts. When car shocks and car struts start to wear out, they can no longer perform their job of stabilizing your vehicle. The life-expectancy of your vehicle will be significantly decreased, you will have less drivability satisfaction, and you will incur additional repair expenses because of excessive wear and tear on other components.

As car shocks and car struts start to fail, a driver will notice two major problems that develop:

• First, it will become more difficult to control your vehicle as the shock's ability to resist wheel and body movement diminishes. The distance it takes to stop quickly will increase.

• Second, every other related vehicle component has to work harder, such as the suspension springs, support arms, bushings, joints and wheel alignment. Since more suspension movement is allowed as the shocks wear, every attached part is subject to additional impacts and wear will occur more quickly.

There are three ways that may determine if your vehicle needs new car shocks and car struts:

• Visual Signs of problems: Noticeable fluid leaks; the shocks, struts or mounts look dented or damaged; or tires showing unusual wear patterns.

• Vehicle Handles Poorly: A bumpy or shaky ride; poor steering response, stiffness or noise when steering; instability when braking; or swaying/leaning while turning or changing lanes.

• Mileage Mark: Testing has shown that at around the 50,000-mile mark, original equipment shocks and struts may be worn to the point of needing replacing.

Remember: Schedule an appointment with your auto mechanic for professional help in determining if your car struts and car struts need to be replaced. Don't lose control!
