How to Spot Worn Shocks or Struts

Shocks and struts help keep your tires in contact with the road and affect your vehicle handling and control. Your local Quick Lane can help you keep an eye on the health of your shocks or struts with a Vehicle Check-Up Report. However, if you notice any of the following while driving, it's a sign you may need steering and suspension system maintenance as soon as possible.

  • Excessive bouncing
  • Loss of tire contact with the road
  • Excessive or uneven tire wear
  • A decrease in your handling or braking ability
  • Vibration or noise
  • Fluid leaks in your shocks
  • Dents, holes or damage to any of your shock components
