Symptons

WORN SHOCKS

SIGNS YOUR VEHICLE NEEDS NEW SHOCKS AND STRUTS

Your vehicle may need new shocks and struts if:

  • Visual? there are noticeable fluid leaks; if the shocks, struts or mounts look dented or damaged; or if your tires show unusual wear patterns. (example: cupping)
  • Vehicle handling? you experience a generally bumpy or shaky vehicle ride; poor steering response, stiffness or noise when steering; “nose dive” or instability when braking; or swaying/leaning when turning or changing lanes.
  • Mileage? testing has shown that at around 50,000 original equipment shocks and struts may be worn to the point of needing replacing (depending on vehicle and driving conditions).

If you notice signs that your shocks / struts may need replacing, get your vehicle inspected by one of our Bi-State Auto Locations.
