Kevin from Orlando asks: When do I need to replace my shocks?

Thanks for the question, Kevin! Assuming that your shocks and struts aren’t exposed to more than normal wear and tear, you should follow the manufacturer’s recommendations, which call for replacement every 50,000 miles to keep your car riding and performing well. Most manufacturers also recommend an inspection every 12 months or 12,000 miles. Following the maintenance guidelines helps prevent additional wear and tear.
