There are many different components that make up the steering and suspension systems of your vehicle. Even though they all play a role in keeping your ride smooth and safe, it's the automotive shocks (or struts in some vehicles) that keep your car connected to the road. However, unlike most of the other parts and systems of your vehicle, shocks and struts really don’t have a specific maintenance schedule which means it’s important to have them inspected fairly frequently for excessive wear.

How often should you replace struts, you ask? Even though automotive shocks and struts are designed to handle a lot of stress, they do wear down as the miles add up. Many auto experts recommend that automotive shocks and struts should be replaced anywhere between 50,000 to 100,000 miles, depending on your driving patterns. Driving consistently on bumpy roads will cause them to wear out much faster than those used for commuting short distances on a daily basis.

There are several warning signs that it’s time to replace automotive shocks and struts:

  • Poor steering performance—either too loose or too stiff.
  • Your car sways or leans when turning and changing lanes.
  • Your vehicle bounces excessively when driving.
  • Braking performance is unstable—it may take too long to come to a stop or braking may be quick and hard.

What are some benefits of replacing worn automotive shocks and struts?

  • Helps maintain consistent handling and braking
  • Keeps your tires in contact with the road
  • Controls spring and suspension movements
  • Reduces vehicle roll, bounce, sway, brake dive, and acceleration squat
  • Prolongs the life of other parts in the suspension
  • Prevents gradual deterioration of ride quality
