Shock Absorber Replacement Service

What is the Shock Absorber all about?

Shock absorbers are attached to the vehicle body and suspension components. They are used to absorb road shock, providing a smooth ride. Most cars made after 1995 have shock absorbers in the back wheels and strut assembly in the front. Older cars and trucks may have shock absorbers at all four wheels.

Shock absorbers are basically cylindrical containers filled with gas or liquid. They are mounted from the suspension to the frame of the car. When you drive over a bump, the pistons inside the shocks move up and down against the liquid or gas.

Shock absorbers take a beating day after day, especially on bumpy roads. The gas or liquid will eventually leak, resulting in an unstable or rugged ride. With worn shock absorbers, it is possible that the tires could lose contact with the road and/or wear out prematurely.

Keep in mind:

Shock absorbers are always replaced in pairs (either both front or both rear).

How it's done:

  • Verify that the shock absorbers are bad.
  • Remove and replace the faulty shock absorbers.
  • Inspect the suspension system for any other worn or damaged parts.
  • Test drive vehicle.

Our recommendation:

It is a good practice to replace the shock absorbers every 35,000 miles. You can easily find out if you need new shocks by doing a bounce test. Go to the rear corner of your car and push down on the rear of the car. If your car bounces up and down a few times, it is time to change the shock absorbers.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Shock Absorber?

  • Unstable, bouncy ride.
  • Tires losing contact with the road.
  • Hard impact when you drive over a bump.
  • Leaking fluid.

How important is this service?

Shock absorbers exist at both rear wheels, and sometimes the front wheels as well. The shock absorbers attach the suspension to the body of your car, and feature pistons that are filled with gas or liquid. As your vehicle rides over the bumps and rough conditions of the road, the suspension is subject to a lot of shock. This shock moves the pistons, but the gas or liquid in the pistons helps absorb the impact, and lessen the shock that is then transferred to the body of the vehicle. As a result, the shock absorbers keep your ride relatively smooth and comfortable.

When the shock absorbers malfunction or leak, they will be unable to absorb any of the shock from the road, and all of the impact on the suspension will be transferred to the body of the car. This not only makes for an uncomfortable ride, but can also cause damage to numerous different components in your vehicle.

Volvo V60 L4-2.0L Turbo - Wheel Bearings Replacement (Driver Side Front, Passenger Side Front) - Houston, Texas
Honestly, Ben brought some serious joy to my day! It has been at least 18 months since I last used YourMechanic, as I realized I can do practically everything myself (thank you Youtube), but as work has gotten more and more hectic, I find myself with substantially less time and ability to commit a few hours on the weekend (what is a weekend anymore haha) to fixing my car. Ben was 5 minutes early, and even reached out the day before to introduce himself, confirm I had the necessary parts, and make sure he brought the correct equipment to work on my Volvo. Volvo quotes me $900, Ben gets it done for $200. He had a smile on his face the whole time and is truly a genuine man. I have some heavy piece of mind knowing I took care of the vehicle that has treated me like a king for the last 3 years, and I owe it to Ben!!
