For the large amount of time that most Americans spend in their car, today's vehicles need to be both comfortable and safe. That's where your shocks and struts come in.
Many drivers don't their of their shocks and struts when they think of vehicle safety. Shocks and strus help keep your tires in constant contact with the road. When shocks and struts wear, the tires will bounce more under acceleration. This can create issues with handling, steering performance and stopping time.
Shocks and struts also absorb the force of the road for the rest of the vehicle. When your shocks and struts are worn all the other suspensions components are left to pick up the slack causing premature wear.
