The components of the steering and suspension systems should work together to keep your ride comfortable and safe. Just like most other automobile parts and systems, shocks and struts have a specific maintenance schedule. Even in the normal course of driving and as the miles add up, shocks will wear out. However, they will wear out even faster if you consistently drive over bumpy streets and hit potholes or other obstacles in the road. You may start to notice some problems with your suspension system and wonder how it affects the car axles.

So when do car shocks need to be replaced? The life span of shocks will depend a great deal on how and where you drive. It could range anywhere between every 50,000 to 100,00 miles. If you consistently travel over bumpy streets and adverse road conditions, then they will need to be replaced more often than if you drive just short easy distances every day.

Here are the basic signs of bad shocks:

  • Poor steering response.
  • Vehicle sways to one side or the other when turning or changing lanes.
  • Excessive bouncing.
  • Poor braking performance.
  • When braking or accelerating, vehicle “nosedives” or “squats.”
  • Tire cupping--the rubber wears off the tire each time it hits the ground.
  • Hydraulic fluid leaking from inside the shock.

When you feel your car suspension (which could include car axles) fail, have it check out as soon as possible. Replacing your car shocks will improve braking performance, increase the control of your vehicle, and enhance the safety of your vehicle.

Wondering when do car shocks need to be replaced? Contact our ASE-certified technicians today at Express Auto Service & Repair for more information about the suspension system, including car axles and to schedule an appointment.
