Shock absorbers and struts, which are pieces of the complex steering and suspension system of your vehicle, usually wear gradually and are not detected as being defective by a driver until an emergency or accident happens.

Shock absorbers and struts not only help to smooth out the ride of your vehicle, they also serve to control body sway and roll on turns, curves and when braking. This is important to ensure the driver retains control of the vehicle during normal driving and especially in emergency situations.
