The shocks and struts in your Kia help it remain stable. They do it by regulating the activity of the coil springs in its suspension. That, in turn, minimizes body roll. Shocks and struts do more than this, too. They also help keep your wheels aligned, giving your tires the firmest possible grip on the road and helping your vehicle handle and brake dependably. As a result, your ride remains enjoyable.
Sometimes, though, a shock or a strut can wear out and go bad. At that point, you'll probably need to change one, the other, or even both. Luckily, there are symptoms you can keep an eye out for, and even more fortunately, they usually show up well before they become serious problems.
Signs Shocks and Struts May Need Replacement
- Rough ride quality
- Excessive forward lean when stopping
- Unintentionally pulling sideways when turning
- Uneven tire treads (even with properly aligned wheels)
- A film of grease or oil on suspension parts
Run an inspection to figure out whether you do, in fact, need to change them.
