Shocks & Struts Are Important

Posted at Wed, Apr 26, 2017 11:00 AM

Since your vehicle’s shock absorbers and struts are responsible for the control and handling characteristics of your vehicle by basically keeping connected to the road, it’s very important to keep your shocks and struts in top condition. We recommend you include a shock and strut check in your regular vehicle maintenance schedule. Our certified technicians at #Tim’sTruckCapital & Auto Sales in Epsom, NH are happy to do an inspection for you.

How Are Your Driving Conditions Impacting Your Shocks & Struts?

Under normal conditions, shocks and struts should wear out gradually. However, there are quite a few factors that will affect the rate of wear. Think about the hostile environment underneath your vehicle, where there is constant contact with ice, snow and/or gravel. In addition, if you’re mostly driving in the city on straight smooth roads, your shocks are likely to last a whole lot longer than if you’re driving on winding, muddy gravel roads in a wintry climate. For example, flying gravel can easily nick or damage the piston rod allowing grit and dirt to damage the piston seal.

Signs of Wear

There can be several signs your shocks and struts are wearing out. Your vehicle bouncing more than 3-4 times at a crossing; rocking back and forth after a sudden stop; drifting to the left or right when you apply the brakes firmly at high speed or rocking or swaying when changing lanes quickly. Our Tim’s Truck Capital certified technicians can take care of your vehicle.
