Car shocks and struts wear slowly so it can be difficult to be certain when they are wearing out. There is no set time for replacing struts or shocks listed in the owner’s manual. However, there are certain signs you can look for to determine if your car struts and shocks are going bad.

What are the Symptoms of Bad Shocks and Struts?

A classic sign is cupping on your tires. This is caused by uneven wear on the tires, and areas of the tread will appear hollowed out. This can result in the necessity of replacing all your tires. Bad car shocks and struts can cause problems with the vehicle's suspension bushings including peeling, cracking and becoming off-center. Another sign is when oil is leaking onto other parts of the car. Your ride will be much rougher, and the car's suspension or body may hit the ground when backing out of your driveway or driving up a ramp in a parking garage. A few other tell-tale signs are stopping distances will lengthen, the vehicle will sway in cross winds, bumps and dips will cause the car to bounce, or you may nose dive when you use your brakes.

The Importance of Shocks and Struts on a Car

Shocks and struts are responsible for much more than a smoother ride. They provide safety and control of the vehicle. When you do not have them checked by a professional mechanic they can cause other parts to become overworked. This leads to premature wear and expensive repair bills. Never wonder how to tell if your car struts are bad, simply take your car to an authorized mechanic.
