Your automobile control components in your vehicle help improve breaking, handling, and controllability of the vehicle. Keeping maintained shocks and struts will help improve your safety and the safety of the other drivers on the road. That’s why it’s important to have your shocks and struts replaced every 50,000 miles. Of course, this mileage may vary from driver to driver. The life of your vehicle’s shocks and struts depends on the driver as well as road conditions, which is why our mechanics check shocks and struts during every tire, brake, and alignment service to ensure your shocks and struts meet manufacturer standards.
Having worn or loose components will affect the suspension system's ability to control motion and alignment angles which will result in the vehicle handling and stability deterioration, as well as accelerated tire wear.
The suspension system includes:
- Control arms
- Ball joints
- Springs (coil or leaf)
- Shock absorbers
