Are Your Shocks Worn Out?

Apr

What exactly do the shock absorbers on your car do?  Silly question, right?  Everyone knows they absorb the bumps and shocks that occur when you drive your car on bumpy roads.  If a car didn’t have shock absorbers, every time you hit a bump, the whole car would jump around?

Well, as it turns out, they have nothing to do with absorbing shocks.  The springs, either coil or leaf-style, that are on each wheel of your car absorb the shocks and bumps.  What the shock absorbers do is dampen the bouncing of the springs so your car doesn’t bounce up and down after hitting a bump.  Technically, shocks should be called “Spring Dampeners” not “Shock Absorbers”.

There are many warning signs that tell you when your shock absorbers need replacing.  When you hit a bump, does your car bounce up and down several times before settling down?  If so, your shocks may need to be replaced. Other signs are exaggerated body lean in corners or your front end dives down when you apply your brakes hard.
