Whether your vehicle has shocks or struts, they are both parts of the suspension system that keeps your vehicle stable on the road, playing a major role in keeping you safe on the road. Consider the benefits of keeping your suspension system in good condition:

  • Maintains consistent handling and braking power
  • Keeps the four tires connected to the road
  • Controls spring and suspension movements
  • Reduces vehicle bouncing and vibrating
  • Maintains the life of other components in the suspension system, such as the car axles
  • Keeps your ride smooth and comfortable

Of course, given enough time and miles are driven, shocks and struts do wear down. However, because they start to go bad so gradually, it’s well past the time that they should have been replaced by the time a problem is noticed. Hopefully, no other damage has occurred, such as in the car axles or steering

When should car shocks be replaced? The standard answer for many vehicles is that shocks or struts should be replaced at every 30,000 miles. However, some vehicles can go as long as 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Read your owner’s manual to find what the manufacturer recommends for your specific vehicle.

Of course, there are varying factors that play a role in determining how fast or how slow the shocks actually wear. For example, the type of vehicle you drive, how you drive, and the condition of the roads you drive on affects many areas of your vehicle, including the suspension system. In addition, every vehicle is designed with a maximum load capacity. Overloading it with too much cargo or too many passengers adds extra stress to the suspension system. The car shocks and axles on older vehicles with high mileage can become brittle and are more prone to breaking. Be careful driving on bumpy roads or over potholes.
