What Is Struts and Shocks?
Struts And Shocks are designed to control the tires, to keep them in contact and align them with the road surface as much as possible. If vehicle tires are free to bounce (which is what happens when struts and shocks wear) they are not as effective at gripping the road, so steering, handling, and braking are all affected. Shocks and struts are not just for ride comfort, but their primary function, tire control, is a much more important role.
Why Replace Shocks?
Replacing worn Car Shock components will restore the ride control and handling that the vehicle demonstrated when it was new. It also means that the tires will last longer before wearing off. New shocks and struts also helps to reduce potential wear of other steering and truck, SUV or car suspension components.
HOW DO I KNOW MY SHOCK ABSORBERS NEED TO BE REPLACED?
Check the strut mounting. This is where your shock is connected to your car and is usually visible once your bonnet is open. Shove the car, if there is movement or noise coming from the mounting, thats a sign of trouble.
Check the housing of the shock absorber. Is there any excess oil or notable corrosion on the housing of the shock absorber? If so unfortunately that means your shocks are already on their way out.
Check the shock absorber housing, in other words, the outside of the part. Look for any dents, rust, or other damage on the shock absorber. These are good indicators of your shock's current condition.
If your vehicle has done more than 80,000km there is a good chance your shocks may not be operating 100% anymore. It is recommended you test your vehicle's shocks every 20,000km.
