Whether your car has struts or shocks, they are an integral part of the suspension system that keeps your vehicle connected to the road. They play a major role in keeping your ride smooth and comfortable, along with the other components of the suspension system, such as the car axles and steering.

If you’re wondering what happens when car struts go bad, take a look at the problems listed below that can develop:

  • Poor steering performance and response.
  • Your car sways or leans when turning and changing lanes.
  • Your vehicle bounces excessively when driving over bumps, whether small or big.
  • Braking performance is unstable.

Why does your vehicle need good shocks and struts? They . . .

  • Help maintain consistent handling and braking performance
  • Keep your tires connected to the road
  • Control spring and suspension movements, reducing bouncing and swaying
  • Reduce “brake dive” and “acceleration squats”
  • Protect the life of other components in the suspension system
  • Keep your ride smooth and safe
Automotive shocks do start to wear down as the miles add up. While some vehicles can go as far as 60,000 to 100,000 miles without suspension problems, some vehicles may need to have the struts or shocks replaced at 30,000 miles. The deterioration is very gradual so by the time a driver notices a problem, it’s well past the time that they should have been replaced. The other components of the suspension system (such as the axles or steering) may have already received some damage.

There are three main factors that affect how fast or how slow shocks and struts wear:

  • The type of vehicle you drive,
  • How you drive (aggressive or gentle), and
  • The condition of the roads you drive on.
