WHEN SHOULD SHOCK ABSORBERS OR SPRINGS BE REPLACED?
Like all vehicle parts, shocks and springs wear over time, depending on the driving conditions. A common symptom is a knocking sound when you drive over bumps caused by a worn-out rubber joint, top mount bearing, or rubber impact stop. But don't wait until they fail. We recommend having your suspension checked every 12,000 miles.
A damaged or partially failed shock absorber will impact the way the tyres contact the road surface and cause instability. A car with a damaged shock absorber may not track correctly or suffer from additional body roll through corners. If your car has these symptoms, book an appointment to check your suspension system as soon as possible.
