All of a sudden you notice that your vehicle bounces around when you step on the brake or when turning a corner even though you are driving on a level road. You may be wondering just what are the symptoms of bad shocks? The entire suspension system, including your car axles, can be negatively affected by bad shocks. Shocks wear out normally as the miles add up on your vehicle, but driving over bad roads filled with potholes or covered in gravel will cause them to wear out even quicker than normal.

So just what are the symptoms of bad shocks, you ask? Watch out for these signs:

  1. Excessive Bouncing when hitting a bump or pothole.
  2. Sudden braking or fast acceleration causes your vehicle to “nose dive” or “squat”.
  3. “Cupping” occurs on the tires, which means a bit of rubber wears off each time the tire hits the ground.
  4. Hydraulic fluid is leaking from the shock.

The steering and stopping performance of your vehicle is also affected when shocks fail. How do you restore the safety of your vehicle, you ask? Replace the shocks! It will not only improve stopping performance but also increase vehicle stability and driver control.
