Has the comfortable ride of your vehicle become more bouncy than usual, even when the road is smooth? You may be starting to worry about when should you replace your car suspension? It is a fact of vehicle ownership that eventually, car shocks will wear out as the miles add up. The life span of car shocks depends largely on your driving conditions. If you consistently travel over poor roads and bumpy streets, you will find car shocks will need to be replaced more often than drivers who have just a short commute every day.

So when should you replace your car suspension? Generally, auto repair experts say that car shocks should be replaced between every 50,000 to 100,000 miles, depending on the wear and tear they have received. Unfortunately for your budget, it is recommended that all four shocks be replaced at the same time. For example, if the shock on the left side is damaged, there is a good chance the one on the right is also damaged. And the same goes for the front versus the back shocks.

Regardless of the number of miles driven, there are some signs that it’s time to replace your car shocks:

  • Bouncy ride
  • Braking problems
  • Difficult Steering
  • Over 50,000 miles on your vehicle
  • Excessive wear on your tire tread
  • Can visually detect damaged or leaking car shocks

If you notice any of the problems above, schedule an inspection of your car suspension system. Replacing your car shocks will benefit you in two big ways:

  1. Improved Safety: There will be a marked improvement in stopping performance as well as an increase in the control of your vehicle.
  2. Decreases Wear On Other Components: You will be saving extra wear and tear on your tires, wheels, and axles.
