The first thing that comes to mind when "Shock Absorbers" are mentioned is - a smoooooth ride!
And that's true . . .
But more importantly they are one of the several important components to a SAFE ride because:
#1) Worn shocks affect your vehicle's optimum ability to stop by improperly distributing your car's weight and energy to it's brakes in a manner inconsistent with the manufacturer's specifications
#2) Worn shocks affect your vehicle's ability to turn, particularly when "at speed" by not distributing weight and energy properly to tires
#3) Worn shocks affect your ability to control your vehicle in starts, stops, and turns - a serious SAFETY issue!
A rule of thumb is to have your Shock Absorbers reviewed for replacement every 50,000 miles.
