Shocks and struts are key elements in the suspension system of your vehicle. The job of these components is to ensure that your ride is controlled and smoothed. They both help to absorb the shock of driving over uneven surfaces or debris, which enables you to properly steer and remain in control of your vehicle's direction.
Due to the job of these parts, they will wear down over time just with normal use of your vehicle. If you follow your vehicle's recommended services closely, you'll know when they need to be inspected and replaced. However, there are certain symptoms that can occur that can indicate it is time to have your shocks and struts replaced.
The signs of worn shocks and struts include:
- Your car is veering or sliding and you find yourself having to correct your vehicle's direction often
- Uneven or excessive tire wear
- Car bounces up and down after driving over speed bumps or uneven roads
- Car nose dives or dips when braking
- Car vibrates excessively
- Braking delay
