What are shock absorbers?
Shock absorbers do exactly what you imagine, soaking up any energy generated from any interruptions in the road. When your wheels hit a bump or fall into a pothole, your shock absorbers keep the ride smooth - and on our roads, they have a lot of work to do!
When to replace shock absorbers
Shock absorbers get bashed and smashed day in and day out, so it’s no surprise they sometimes need replacing. You should check your shock absorbers and suspension every year - some vehicle manufacturers recommend replacement at around 50,000 miles. Symptoms of bad shock absorbers include a bouncy or uneven ride, banging noises or longer stopping distances. When you notice it, do something about it sooner rather than later. Replacing shock absorbers is necessary if they’ve worn out or completely failed. They’re also a good upgrade if you’re looking for a smoother ride.
How long do shock absorbers last?
Your shock absorbers will last longer, such as 10 years, if you do not drive frequently, whereas driving further miles on bumpy terrain can reduce this time to 5 years. Undoubtedly, the lifetime of your shock absorbers will depend dramatically on your driving style and road conditions.
