With age and use, your car’s shocks and struts will wear. Generally vehicle manufacturers recommend you have them replaced by a trusted mechanic every 50,000 to 100,000 miles. In some situations they may need servicing or replacing earlier than recommended.
If your vehicle has begun to make a knocking noise when you drive over a bump or the operation of your car feels bumpy instead of smooth, your struts may be bad. Checking your tires for uneven wear could be another indicator your shocks and struts need a mechanic’s expert attention.
Driving with bad shocks or struts isn’t only bad for your car or truck. Operating a vehicle with worn out struts and shocks can have dangerous ramifications. If you’re unsure if your shocks & struts need replacing, call Multnomah Automotive for an evaluation.
