When to replace shocks and struts

Number of visits: Date:2017-12-11

i'm sure you've probably heard this before. "Your shocks and (or) struts are blown and need replacing." You are quoted some astronomical price and you immediately ask yourself, "How important are these things ... do I really need to replace them?" These are good questions that deserve our attention.

First of all, it is important to note that not all vehicles have both shocks and struts. Some have just struts and some vehicles have only shocks. Shocks are part of the overall suspension, and a strut is a complete suspension assembly.

The shocks and/or struts in your car perform two functions. They dampen spring oscillation, and secondly, they aid in ride control. Let's look at these two jobs in more detail.

The springs in your car actually absorb road shocks (not the shock absorbers). Surprised? The shock absorber's function is to dampen the bouncing spring. If you did not have shock absorbers to dampen the spring oscillations from road shock, your car would turn into a "bucking bronco" every time you hit a bump in the road, making it very difficult to handle and dangerous.
