First of all, you may be wondering how the muffler and exhaust system are related. Internal combustion engines in their normal operation produce toxic gases known as exhaust. These fumes exit the engine’s cylinders after combustion and flow through the exhaust system to be expelled from the tailpipe, also referred to as the muffler. While the exhaust system is relatively simple in its operation, it plays an important role in engine performance. Any issues can cause problems with the drivability of the vehicle.

So what problems can be caused by a bad muffler?

What keeps your vehicle balanced and connected to the road? It’s the car struts or shocks! The components of the steering and suspension systems all work together to keep your ride smooth and safe. But they do wear out over time and as the miles accumulate on your vehicle.

Like most of the other automobile parts and systems, shocks and car struts have a specific maintenance schedule. Generally, most mechanics advise that they should be replaced between every 50,000 to 100,000 miles. The life span of shocks and struts will depend a great deal on how and where you drive. If you consistently travel over bumpy streets and adverse road conditions, then these parts will need to be replaced more often than if you drive just short distances every day.

So how do you know if need new shocks?
