Whether you have car shocks or car struts, they are both parts of the suspension system that keeps your vehicle stable on the road. There are many different components that make up the steering and suspension systems that play a major role in keeping your ride smooth and safe.

Here’s a list of all the things that shocks or car struts do for your vehicle:

  • Helps maintain consistent handling and braking performance
  • Keep your tires connected to the road
  • Controls spring and suspension movements
  • Reduces vehicle bounce, sway, brake dive, and acceleration squatProlongs the life of other components in the suspension system
  • Slows down the deterioration of ride quality

Of course, given enough time and miles are driven, shocks will wear down. However, because their deterioration is so gradual, by the time a driver notices problems, it’s well past the time that they should have been replaced. Damage could already have taken place in other parts of the suspension system, such as the axles or steering.

Some vehicles may need to have the shocks or car struts replaced at 30,000 miles, while other vehicles can go as long as 60,000 to 100,000 miles. The type of vehicle you drive, how you drive, and the condition of the roads you drive on affects how fast or slow the shocks actually wear. For example, if you drive consistently over bumpy streets and bad roads in a sedan, the shocks will need to be replaced more often than if you drive a big truck, or if you drive just short distances on the level ground every day.

Take a look at the list of the problems that will develop if you keep driving on bad shocks or car struts:

  • Poor steering performance and response.
  • Your car sways or leans when turning and changing lanes.
  • Your vehicle bounces excessively when driving.
  • Braking performance is unstable.
