You know the city streets and roads are bumpy and filled with potholes, but it seems your vehicle’s “ride” is getting worse all the time. You may wonder if it’s the suspension going bad, the car axles, or bad shocks. Do you know the symptoms of bad shocks, and how the entire suspension system, including car axles, is impacted?

Car struts, or shocks, whichever one your vehicle has, wear out over time as your vehicle accumulates mileage. They wear out even more quickly when it is necessary to drive over bumpy streets that need repair. When shocks go bad, the results can be dangerous. However, replacing the shocks, or struts, the results are improved stopping performance as well as increased vehicle stability and driver control.

The following are four common symptoms of bad shocks:

  1. Excessive Bouncing – When your vehicle hits a bump, it bounces on the coil springs, and continue to bounce longer than normal.
  2. Vehicle nose dives or “squats” – When braking, the front end of your vehicle dives. When accelerating, the rear end of your vehicle “squats.”
  3. Tire "Cupping" – Each time the tires hit the ground, a little bit more of the tire is worn off, commonly referred to as “cupping” or “scalloping.” You will feel the tires literally bounce up and down as you drive.
  4. Leaking Fluid – Inside every shock is a piston and hydraulic fluid. Sometimes the fluid can leak out. A tiny seepage is normal, but a large leak is a sign of worn shocks.

Are you experiencing any of the above symptoms of bad shocks? If so, you don’t have to endure these any longer than it takes to get your vehicle to an auto service center.

Wondering if the stability of your car axles is being compromised? Contact our ASE Certified Technicians at Gary’s Quality Automotive for more information about the symptoms of bad shocks and to schedule an appointment. Our auto shop proudly serves vehicle owners in Grand Island, NE, Wood River, NE and Doniphan, NE.
