Shocks & Struts
......................................................................................................................................................................

The shocks and/or struts in your car perform two functions. They dampen spring oscillation, and secondly, they aid in ride control.

The springs in your car actually absorb road shocks (not the shock absorbers). The shock absorber's function is to dampen the bouncing spring. If you did not have shock absorbers to dampen the spring oscillations from road shock, your car would turn into a "bucking bronco" every time you hit a bump in the road, making it very difficult to handle and dangerous.

The shock absorbers in your car aid in ride control by keeping the car manageable during regular driving. They do this by keeping the tires down on the road and not allowing them to bounce after hitting a bump. This allows for ease of cornering and handling. AOL Autos: How to make your old car seem new

Here are the signs that you may need new shocks and/or struts:

Vehicle rolls or sways on turns

 Front end dives when braking

 Rear end squats when accelerating

 Vehicle bounces or slides sideways on a winding, rough road

 Vehicle "bottoms out" (with a thump) on bumps

Things to look for:

 Leaks on the housing

 Dents on the shock or strut body

Worn rubber mounting bushings

 Pitted piston rods

 Crushed rubber bumpers from "bottoming out"

Abnormal wear on tires (high and low spots)
