Is your vehicle balanced and connected to the road, or are you bouncing down the road instead of rolling smoothly along? The components that make up the steering and suspension systems play a big role in keeping your ride smooth and safe. However, as the miles add up, these components wear down. Like all other automobile parts and systems, car shocks and struts have a specific maintenance schedule.

So when should car shocks be replaced? Most auto repair experts say that generally car struts or shocks should be replaced between every 50,000 to 100,000 miles, depending on how much wear and tear they have received. If you mainly drive on paved highways, they probably won’t need replacing much before the 100,000 marks. But if you consistently drive on bumpy gravel roads filled with potholes, they will more than likely need to be replaced closer to the 50,000-mile mark.

Here are a few warning signs that it’s time to replace your car struts or shocks:

  • Poor steering response.
  • Steering performance is stiff.
  • Your car sways or leans when turning and changing lanes.
  • Your vehicle bounces excessively when braking or accelerating quickly.
  • Braking performance is unstable.

Don't take a smooth comfortable ride for granted, but reach your destination safely and timely.
