Your vehicles suspension system provides you with optimal riding comfort and handling performance when you’re on the road. It is responsible for the safety of your vehicle as it maneuvers the road. The suspension system can affect how your wheels interact with the road; preventing dangerous swaying, hydroplaning, and compromised road handling and holding. There are many warning signs that your car has a problem with the steering and suspension system that include:
-Cupped tire wear
– Vehicle drifts or sways while turning at low speeds
– Shaky ride, especially at high speeds
-Excessive movement after driving over a bump
-Fluid leaking from shocks or struts
– Steering makes noises when you turn
-Crooked steering wheel
The typical life of a shock or strut is about 50,000 miles. Within that time frame, your vehicle’s shocks and struts will have cycled over 85 million times. That results in a lot of wear and tear on their internal components. Independent testing has shown that replacing your shocks and struts after 50,000 miles can improve stopping distance by up to 10 feet; making your vehicle significantly safer should the situation arise.
