Shock Absorber

Automotive Shock Absorber Replacement: Get the Right Fit

What are Shock Absorbers and what do they do?

Shock Absorbers (often just called “shocks”) are cylindrical devices that smooth out your ride. They dampen the motion of the car when you ride over an irregular surface. You will usually have two different types of suspension on your car: one for the front wheels and one for the back.

When should I replace my Shock Absorbers

Your car may begin to sway and bounce more than usual, affecting your handling. Test by placing your foot on the bumper or your knee on the hood (be careful not to do this in an area that may dent) and push down on the car. It should come back up stiffly and not continue to bounce. If it does, your shocks may need to be replaced. You can also check if there’s any liquid leaking and running down the car shock absorber. Once they begin to leak, the mechanism for dampening is no longer working effectively. Your tires may wear unevenly or prematurely at a major expense to you.

What happens if I don’t?

Your shocks are an important component for the safe operation of your vehicle. They stabilize your car and affect how it handles. If you continue to drive with worn shocks, the vehicle can sway from side to side or front to back causing you to lose control. It can also hamper the ability of the tires to grip the road and affect how your brakes perform.

How to do it: Installing your Replacement Radiator:

  1. Loosen the lug nuts. Don’t remove the tire just yet.
  2. Jack up the vehicle and stabilize it on a level surface (do not rely solely on a jack)
  3. Lubricate the bolts on the top and bottom of the shock with penetrating fluid to take care of any rust.
  4. Remove the bolts and save them for the new shocks.
  5. Remove the worn shocks from your car.
  6. Install the shock absorbers, replace the bolts and tighten them with a ratchet wrench.
  7. Replace the tire and the lug nuts.
  8. You’ll repeat these steps for all four shocks.
  9. Lower the vehicle, torque the lug nuts and test drive.

Anything else I need to know?

People often mention shocks and Struts in the same sentence. Struts function a lot like shock absorbers to smooth out the bouncing of the vehicle, but a shock absorber is just one part of a strut. The strut has other suspension parts integrated with the automotive shock absorber, including some steering components when mounted on the front of the car.
