The suspension system on a vehicle is between the frame and the road. The suspension system’s primary function is to maximize the overall performance of a vehicle as it cruises down the road. The suspension system also helps to absorb bumps in the road and provide a safe and comfortable ride.
If you routinely drive on rough, bumpy roads, you may need to replace your shocks and struts sooner. If you drive on smooth surfaces only, the shocks and struts will most likely last much longer.
Your vehicle’s suspension system sustains a lot of wear and tear. When you drive over potholes, hit bumps in the road, crash into the curb, or get into a fender bender, these all take a toll on the suspension system. Because of this wear and tear, your suspension system requires regular maintenance.
Like any part of your vehicle, you will eventually need to replace certain parts of your suspension system. This is especially the case with your shocks or struts. You may need to replace your shocks or struts between 50,000 and 100,000 miles. This number is not set in stone, however.
If you notice fluid leaking from your shocks and struts, or they are greasy, you may need to replace them. If the mounts and bushings around the shocks and struts are damaged, you will want to replace all of these parts of the suspension system.
Are you concerned about your vehicle’s suspension system? Do you need to have the suspension system looked at by professional technicians? Or, maybe you know the time is right to replace your shocks and struts. Whatever the case may be, contact KNS Auto Repairs.
