Even though the city streets are bumpy and filled with potholes, it seems your vehicle is bouncing all over the road more than usual. You may wonder if the suspension is going bad, the car axles, or if it’s just bad shocks. Do you know the symptoms of bad shocks, and how the entire suspension system, including car axles, is impacted?

Car shocks simply wear out over time as your vehicle accumulates mileage. Of course, driving over potholes will cause them to wear out even more quickly.  When shocks go bad, the results can be dangerous, as described below. However, replacing bad shocks will result in improved stopping performance as well as increased vehicle stability and driver control.

4 signs of bad shocks:

  1. Excessive Bouncing – When your vehicle hits a bump, it continues to bounce on the coil springs longer than normal.
  2. Vehicle nose dives or “squats” – When braking, the front end of your vehicle dives. When accelerating, the rear end of your vehicle “squats.”
  3. Tire "Cupping" – Each time the tires bounce and hit the ground, a little bit more of the tire is worn off, referred to as “cupping” or “scalloping.” You will be able to feel the tires literally bounce up and down as you drive.
  4. Leaking Fluid – Inside every shock is a piston with hydraulic fluid that can leak out. A tiny seepage is normal, but a large leak is a sign of worn shocks.

Are you experiencing any of the above signs of bad shocks? Regain control of your vehicle with a visit to your auto shop!

Wondering if the stability of your car axles is being compromised? Contact our ASE-certified technicians at Rebel Automotive for more information about the signs of bad shocks and to schedule an appointment. Our auto shop serves vehicle owners in Henderson, NV, Las Vegas, NV, and North Las Vegas, NV.
