Don’t Neglect Your Shocks and Struts
Do you remember what the ride was like when you first bought your car? You might have felt as though you were floating around on a cloud, barely even touching the ground. Today, however, taking your car up the road may feel like you’re driving over a field of land mines. What’s the reason for the change? It’s due to wear and tear on your vehicle’s suspension.
While your tires are what gets the credit for helping keep your car in contact with the road, it’s your shocks and struts (the backbone of your suspension system) that keeps your tires on the road. Sustained wear over time leads to their deterioration. Worn shocks and struts can then contribute to premature tire failure as well as problems with your suspension and steering, making your car unsafe to drive.
Fortunately, car shock repair can quickly get you back to enjoying a safe and comfortable ride. Pay attention to the following signs that could indicate car shock service is needed:
- Front-end diving and rising when you brake and accelerate
- Wallowing through corners
- Difficulty controlling your car at high speeds
