Why shocks and struts are so important
First in order to understand why shocks and struts are so important, we need to understand what vehicle stability is. Vehicle stability means being able to stop, turn and swerve at the moment you need to, and in the right amount. Your vehicle’s shocks & struts react to every wheel movement, your vehicle’s chassis and every bump and corner you take.
When in good working order, they keep your vehicle stable and you as the driver in control. As shocks and struts begin to wear out, your vehicle will dip, sway, bounce and over react more. These actions result in reduced braking ability, tire and vehicle wear, and a driver that should work harder to maintain control of the vehicle.
How to tell if your struts are bad
There are many warning signs to look for when it comes time for struts and shocks replacement. If you aren’t sure what to look for, here are some of the most common warning signs:
- Cupping on tires
- Bottoming out
