Shocks and Struts
Shock absorbers and struts are designed to keep the wheels in contact
with the road improving cornering and braking. Though original equipment
shocks have substantially improved in recent years, many are ready
for replacement in as few as 50,000 km.
The lifespan of a strut is about double that of a shock. Most people
do not notice the gradual deterioration in ride quality and many
shock and struts are not replaced as often as they should be.
Shock and struts should be checked every 20,000km or when any of
the following symptoms are notice:
- Bouncy or uncomfortable ride.
- Excessive body sway when cornering.
- Fluid leaks from the shock or strut.
- Nose dive from braking.
- Uneven tire wear.
- Tail squat when accelerating.
- Physical damage to the shock or strut.
Of the many parts in your car, light trucks or sport utility vehicle,
none are more important than those that make up your braking system.
At OK Tire, we are proud of the brake service we provide to our
customers. That is the reason why we do it right and we do it complete
from the get go.
