Shocks and Struts in Southampton, PA

The vehicle’s shock absorbers prevent you from feeling every bump or pothole in the road.These minor impacts are usually no problem but, accidents and any hard impact such as curb jumping, accident, or major potholes can damage the components in your Suspension system.This makes it hard to determine exactly when your Shocks and Struts will need to be replaced.

In most cases your manufacturer suggests periodic inspections of your Suspension System because the time frame in which suspension components fail can vary greatly. If you are starting to ask yourself when should I get my Shocks and Struts checked? Then it is probably time to have our knowledgeable and friendly technicians take a look.

That being said, you will most likely be able to tell when your suspension system has some worn out components. Your ride will be bumpier and your tires will start to develop uneven wear and tear patterns in their tread. Part of your suspension system’s job is to keep your tires making even contact with the road, this allows you to come to safe and complete stops.

Another symptom of worn out shocks and struts is taking longer to bring your vehicle to a stop when using your brakes. This is why it is always important to keep a safe distance between you and vehicle in front of yours especially when you are unsure about the condition of your shocks and struts.
