How important are your vehicle's shocks and struts?

Why you need an shocks and struts repair service

The most important part of your car’s suspension is the shocks and struts. The suspension plays a big role in how comfortable your car is, but it’s also major element of your car’s safety.  Your suspension softens out the bumps in the road and keeps the car firmly planted on the ground. As your suspension wears out, the car can become hard to handle. Years of potholes and speed bumps can take their toll. If you notice your car bouncing around, if those potholes feel a bit more jarring, or if you feel the car dip when you hit the brakes, these are all signs is time for shocks and struts replacement.   

 

Shocks and struts typically don’t “break” the way some other components do. Instead, they gradually wear out over time. It can be hard for drivers to notice that the ride quality has gotten worse over the years. Because it’s hard to notice that your shocks or struts are worn out, manufacturers recommend that you get your shocks and struts replaced at 50,000 miles to ensure optimum handling and comfort of your car or truck.

Common signs your shocks and struts need replacement

If you notice one or more of these symptoms, your car or truck is a good candidate for shocks and struts replacement:

Shocks vs. Struts

A lot of people get confused about the difference between shocks and struts. Some vehicles have only struts. Some have only shock absorbers. Some have two of each. But there’s going to be one or the other on each corner of a car or truck. Both shock absorbers and struts absorb the forces from the road and cushion the vehicle. A strut contains a shock absorber and a spring in one single unit that supports the car or truck’s weight. Any vehicle that uses shocks instead of struts has springs that are separate parts.

 

Shock absorbers are easier to replace. Because of the spring, struts can be dangerous to change, which is why this is a job best left for a trained mechanic with specialized tools.

The benefits of shocks and struts replacement

Easier Driving

A car or truck with a worn suspension is harder to drive. Replacing your shocks and struts makes your vehicle easier to handle, improves vehicle braking, and makes driving less fatiguing

More comfort

Roads in New York State aren’t known for being the smoothest. But with a new set of shocks or struts, your car will iron out the bumps and potholes, making your daily driving a quieter, more comfortable experience.

Save Money

Worn shocks and struts transmit more vibration to the rest of the car. This vibration can damage suspension components and wear out other parts of your vehicle more quickly.  As a bonus, when you get TLC to do your shocks and struts replacement, your tires will last longer too.

Always replace your shocks and struts in pairs

Unlike other wear items on your car or truck, shocks and struts wear out on the same side of the vehicle at the same time. To ensure the vehicle performs safely and as designed, your shock and strut replacement must happen in pairs. If you have a stiff shock on one side and a soft worn-out shock on the other side, the difference in absorption can hurt the vehicle’s handling. Although it’s not necessary to replace fronts and rears at the same time, typically by the time one set of struts is worn out, chances are the others are worn too.
