Most experts recommend replacement of automotive shocks and struts at 50,000 miles, but this can vary depending on vehicle use. Vehicles that carry heavy loads often or are driven over uneven, bumpy roads may need a shock replacement sooner. Shocks wear out gradually, so sometimes it is hard for a vehicle’s owner to determine whether it’s time for the shocks to be replaced. There are several warning signs that indicate it’s time for your shocks to be replaced. If you have noticed any of these issues while driving your vehicle, come speak with one of Mike’s many trained professionals.
