Equilibrium fails, anxiety strikes, and you lose control. Now you’re stuck in what appears to be a rather regrettable situation – stranded on the side of the road. Few of us ever see the obstacle coming, but if you’ve been driving on bad shocks for some time, you should have. Failure to replace a bad or worn shock can cause premature wear on your tires and make for a very unstable car when hitting bumps, causing a loss of tire contact with the ground and thus, possibly resulting in the situation described above.
If you’ve been thinking about replacing your shocks because of wear or want to upgrade, and especially if you are one of those drivers that thinks taking car of your vehicle means just paying attention to the number of miles until their next oil change (yes, there are areas under the car that require attention too), then we have the perfect article for you with “Types of Shock Absorbers.”
In this article, we explain the purpose, construction and benefits of the various types of Shock Absorbers as well as some of the most reliable manufacturers for each – assuring you make the right decision for your truck, Jeep or SUV, and keep those tires where they belong, on the road.
