REASONS TO REPLACE YOUR SHOCKS & STRUTS
Vehicles are generally designed to handle a broad range of purposes: Passenger ride comfort on one side, load and terrain capabilities on the other. When your typical use of a vehicle sometimes or always stresses heavier loads, top heavy, towing or off-road conditions, you may want to consider replacing the shocks with units that exceed original equipment capabilities. KYB offers many higher-performing “Monotube” shocks for this purpose.
Even on well paved roads the shocks can move up or down 1,500 to 1,900 times every mile: In 50,000 miles that can exceed 75 million cycles. Over time, performance tends to decrease gradually and the motorist usually doesn’t realize how much handling and control is lost. Replacing shocks and struts after 50,000 miles can keep the vehicle performing as well as it was designed and extend its life expectancy.
3. Ride Control Conditions-Based
Worn shocks and struts eventually causes ride control conditions to worsen to a degree that impairs the drivers ability to control the vehicle. Road testing and vehicle inspections by a qualified technician every 12,000 miles is recommended to identify and keep the motorist informed about these conditions.
4. Repair of Failed Units
Shock or strut failures are a driving safety hazard. If you can’t control your vehicle, then it controls you. Evidence of failures includes things like; excessive bounce, units leaking to the point of fluid dripping, tires that are cupping and visual component damage.
I picked these up to replace the worn out struts on my 2001 Bullitt. They look like a quality product and the ride is much improved. However , the directions are terrible, and on the front struts the adjustment is a very tiny and flimsy screw / tab on top of the strut piston. This screw precludes you from having the usual screwdriver slot to hold the rod while installing the bolt. So you are forced to use vice grips on the lower threads to get the nut down enough to expose the shank that is there for a wrench. Not the best set up.
