In need of shocks and struts replacement? Unsure of when these replacements are necessary? Greater Sudbury Area drivers can rest assured that their suspension will remain in working order with Palladino Honda! Here’s everything you need to know about shocks and struts repair!
Why Are Shocks and Struts Important?
Shocks and struts are important components of your vehicle’s suspension system. When they are worn out or damaged, they may have a serious impact on your vehicle’s safety. For example, worn shocks and struts influence the way your wheels touch the road, which may prompt dangerous swaying or hydroplaning and compromise performance.
Shocks and Struts Warning Signs
First and foremost, it’s crucial to be aware of the warning signs that indicate it’s time for shocks and struts replacement. Some examples of warning signs include:
- Bumpy or shaky ride
- Stiff or noisy steering
- Fluid leaks from shock or strut body
- Dents or damage to shocks or strut bodies
- Uneven tire wear
- Swaying or leaning during turns
- Front end diving upon braking or rear end buckling upon accelerating
It’s important to note that shocks and struts typically remain useful for about 50,000 miles. During the time it takes to reach 50,000 miles, your car’s shocks and struts will have rotated more than 85 million times, which of course will cause wear and tear. This damage or wear isn’t always visible, which is why it’s important to seek out expert advice near Sturgeon Falls if you suspect that you’re in need of shocks and struts replacement, or if you’ve surpassed this mileage interval.
