Driving with worn shocks is as dangerous as driving on bold tires. A worn-out suspension does not absorb the bumps and low places in every road. This gives your car an uncomfortable ride, makes it difficult to handle and increases stopping distance.
Shocks and struts are key components of the suspension system. They provide critical support to the handling of your vehicle – which is why they are extreme safety features. It is important to have these parts inspected regularly to ensure the performance of the parts. If your vehicle's shocks and struts are wearing, it can allow disproportionate weight transfer-reducing handling and braking performance, and the tires capability to grasp the road. Did you know that 50% worn shocks or struts can decrease your stopping power by up to 23%? At 30 miles per hour, that can add 6 feet of stopping distance!
Most vehicles with more than 50k miles have worn shocks and struts. They degrade slowly so you just get used to it. This puts extra stress on other suspension components causing them to wear out sooner. New shocks/struts make your car feel new again and bring the handling back to as new condition
