After years of driving your vehicle, there are going to be components that need to be replaced. Your vehicle’s suspension is one of the most common problems for worn-out components on higher-mileage vehicles. On vehicles that have over 100,000 miles, the shock absorbers most likely need to be replaced,
While this may seem like a very simple fix, many vehicles have a MacPhearson front suspension system which means that the spring is mounted on the shock absorber. To replace a worn-out shock absorber, your mechanic must remove the spring, adding time and money to the overall replacement.
By purchasing a loaded shock absorber, a replacement shock absorber, and a spring assembly, you can simply replace the entire component rather than having to remove the spring. This saves time and makes it much easier for those looking to repair it themselves, as a spring compressor is not required.
6 Signs Of A Bad Shock Absorber
If your vehicle’s suspension feels harsher than usual, or you can tell that you are feeling more bumps in the road, you may have a bad shock absorber. When diagnosing a bad shock absorber, you can look for the following symptoms:
Knocking Noises When Driving Over Bumps
Car Leans To One Side
Ticking Or Popping Noise When Turning
Suspension Is Bouncier Than Usual
Car Feels Unstable
Tires Are Wearing Unevenly
If you notice any of the above symptoms, you should take your vehicle to a certified mechanic. Since these symptoms can be caused by other suspension issues, it is a good idea to have a mechanic narrow it down to your shock absorbers before you repair it.
