Shocks and Strut Maintenance

Shocks and strut maintenance begins with routine inspections at major service intervals. It is also important for drivers to know the warning signs of shocks and strut trouble, and get a prompt inspection if any show up. These components can last for 100,000 miles or more with favorable driving habits and road conditions. However, they should be replaced if they show signs of defective performance or fail an inspection due to the safety risk of poor handling.

What are the Warning Signs of Defective Shocks & Struts?

The risk is too great to continue driving with defective shocks and struts because they are essential for effective steering and handling. It is the best decision to get the components inspected and replaced as needed if any of these conditions arise:

  • Fluid leaking
  • Rapid/unusual tire wear
  • Front-end bounces during hard stops
  • Rear-end squats during fast acceleration
  • Vehicle tipping or swaying to a side when turning
  • Handling feels unstable at highway speeds

Risks of Not Replacing Defective Shocks and Struts

Choosing to neglect shocks and strut replacement is choosing to drive with an unsafe vehicle, especially if you have noticed the warning signs of defective performance. You should replace shocks and struts promptly because your vehicle will be driving without proper stability or control.
