5 Reasons to Inspect Your Shocks and Struts This Fall

Tags:
(Posted on Oct 11, 2016 at 06:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
suspension inspections vancouver bcAhhh, fall – it’s a beautiful time of year. It’s colourful, it’s vibrant and it has a lovely chill in the air. But, fall is also the gateway to winter and its harsher conditions. And, these harsher conditions can do a real number of your Ford vehicle’s suspension. 
 
That’s why at Key West Ford, we always recommend that our Service customers have their shocks and struts inspected in the fall to identify any warning signs of replacement.

Here are five reasons why worn suspension parts should be addressed right away:
 
1. Reduced Stopping Ability
When your shocks or struts become worn down, your vehicle bounces up and down, which makes braking difficult. If your vehicle is taking longer than usual to stop, or if it is nose-diving when you do, it’s time to book an inspection to see which suspension parts need replacing.
 
2. Decreased Cornering Control 
If you notice increased “body roll” when cornering, it could be a sign that your shocks or struts are damaged. “Body roll” can affect your ability to steer properly, so it’s advised that you have your vehicle's suspension system inspected if you notice this issue.
 
3. Rougher Ride
No passenger enjoys a rough car ride – especially an overly bouncy one. It can also affect your ability to safely control your vehicle as well. To see how your shocks and struts are functioning, we recommend the bounce test. If you push down firmly on the front or rear of your car and it moves up and down more than once or twice, this could be a sign that your suspension needs replacing.
 
4. Tire Wear
When struts or shocks are worn out, your tires will wear out faster too. If you notice rumbling or increased vibrations at higher speeds, look for “cupping” on your tires, which is a type of scalloped wear pattern. Cupping happens when your car bounces up and down, leaving indented scuff marks on the tires – a big red flag that your suspension needs repairing.
 
5. Hydroplaning
Worn shocks and struts can affect the way your wheels engage with the road, especially when roads are slick – and, we all know we have slick roads in the Lower Mainland. If your vehicle is sliding or hydroplaning frequently, get your suspension checked right away – especially before the fall/winter precipitation arrives!
 
If you are experiencing any of these five warning signs, it’s time to get your shocks and struts inspected. Don’t delay this any further – contact our Service Department at Key West Ford today in New Westminster, B.C. to book your appointment.
