Shocks and struts are essential to a vehicle's ride and control. Their function is to reduce the effect of the springs and keep your wheels in constant contact with the ground. Shocks and struts tend to wear over time and should be inspected at least once a year.
If you notice a decrease in the handling of your vehicle, irregular bouncing or rocking back and forth, get an inspection to avoid accidental loss of control and an accident. Worn shocks and struts must be replaced in pairs. Your Tire Factory tech may recommend gas-charged shocks and struts designed to reduce foaming of the shock-absorption liquid. This will improve performance, enhance control and help them last longer.
