To keep your suspension system is good condition, it is necessary to replace worn or damaged shocks and struts. The shocks and struts help maintain wheel alignment, control suspension movement, reduce wear on other components, and provide consistent braking and handling. When the shocks and struts are worn, it can cause an uncomfortable ride for you and your passengers.

Most shock and strut manufacturers suggest to have them replaced after 50,000 miles. When your vehicle's shocks and struts are being replaced, you may also need a complete vehicle alignment to optimize handling.
