What is the primary purpose of shock absorbers and struts? The primary purpose of shock absorbers and struts are to maintain the tires in contact with the road surface. If there were no shock absorbers or struts; the wheels would bounce constantly off the road surface.When the tire is not on the road surface; the driver does not have control of the vehicle. The secondary purpose is to improve the ride of the vehicle for the driver and passengers. This is where the ride control science dampens the movement of the tires and helps remove vibration. Can worn shocks or struts cause my new tires to wear unevenly? Absolutely: shocks and struts provide damping force to control tire movement. When the tires move excessively, they develop a "cupping" wear pattern that damages the tire. Other factors such as incorrect air pressure, worn suspension components or improperly aligned steering also causes uneven tire wear. What's the disadvantages of worn shocks? There are two major disadvantages that begin to occur as your shocks (or struts) wear.
First, as the shock's ability to resist wheel & body movement diminishes, it becomes more difficult to control your vehicle. That becomes evident as quick-stopping distances increase and the driver has to compensate for conditions like body roll and nose-diving. The second is increased wear of every other related vehicle component.Since more suspension movement is allowed as the shocks wear, every attached part is subject to additional impacts and wear to those components occurs more quickly. The suspension springs, support arms, bushings, joints and wheel alignment all suffer. That translates to a shorter vehicle life, less vehicle satisfaction and additional repair expenses.
When do I need to replace worn shocks or struts? There are four main reasons that determine when to replace them: 1 To upgrade performance; 2 to restore the vehicle's designed performance (usually after 50,000 miles); 3 when the vehicle has excessive ride control conditions i. Nose dive, body roll, etc. ; or 4 when the vehicle has a failed unit i. Dripping hydraulic fluid, tire cupping, excessive bounce, etc.
