Shock absorbers, which are attached to the vehicle body and suspension elements,absorb energy generated by your carwhile driving and provides you with a smooth ride. Shock absorbers, like all parts of cars, have an important role to play in the safety of your vehicle and will need replacing every 30,000 miles or so. To test whether your shocks need replacing, there is a quick and easy way to check. Go to the rear corners of your car and push down a few times. If it bounces, then it’s time to have your shock absorbers changed. They are always replaced in pairs, either both front or both rear.
