    Bad shocks can make your vehicle harder to steer.

    Without a fully functional suspension system, you won't be able to effectively control your vehicle's speed and direction on the road. Bad shocks can make it harder for you to handle your vehicle, which can make it less fun to drive.

  • Is it OK to drive without shocks?

    No. It is not recommended. A damaged or collapsed spring can cause sagging and noise and affect alignment angles. While you can still drive, the ride will be rough and the car will be difficult to control in an emergency.
  • How long should shocks last?

This means that for the average driver, 7 or 8 years is the maximum life expectancy of most shocks and struts.19 Apr 2019
