Your vehicles overall safety rests on your shock absorbers and struts also known as your ride control units. These parts wear out gradually over time so you do not notice the decrease in performance. Industry experts have found that if you are in a panic situation and your shocks are worn to just 50% efficiency it will take you an extra 12.3 feet to stop your vehicle and if they worn to a lesser effectiveness it can take more than a cars length more to stop. That may be the difference of hitting what is in front of you or avoiding a disaster.

2. You feel like your vehicle has less control, poor traction or a harsh ride.

4. You desire to upgrade your vehicles handling capabilities.
