When we think of shocks and struts, we probably think of SUV’s bouncing across rough desert terrain. In actually shocks and struts are working all the time, regardless of how smooth the road is. They assist in keeping your vehicle in control at all times, and ensuring your safety. Shocks and struts do more than cushion you on rough roads. They assist road control and ensure your safety. Here’s a breakdown of the benefits of shocks and struts:

  • Keep your tires in contact with the road
  • Shorten your braking distance
  • Control spring and suspension movement
  • Reduce vehicle bounce, sway and roll
  • Maintain wheel alignment and promote even tire wear

The Motorist Assurance Program (MAP)* now recommends that you consider replacing your shocks and struts at 50,000 miles.
