For most vehicles, shock absorbers and struts last a long time and wear out pretty slowly. It’s easy to overlook them, but they do a very important job so you need to pay attention to how they are doing. They keep your tires planted on the road, and your tires are your connection to the road which allow your car to handle safely through turns, bumps, and braking.
If your shocks and struts get worn out, your tires will start to bounce excessively over bumps in the road. Your vehicle will tilt excessively through corners and acceleration. This will hurt your ability to control your vehicle and make your ride less comfortable.
A worn suspension system will also cause excessive tire wear, so you end up having to replace tires more often than you should. A worn shock or strut will also stress other components in your suspension and steering system, and cause them to wear more quickly as well. Replacing worn shocks and struts will save you money in the long run, and give you the priceless peace of mind of a safer handling vehicle. Our technicians here at ExperTec Automotive Costa Mesa recommend that you replace shocks and struts about every 50,000 miles.
