No Good Replacing Your Tyres, Without Checking Your Shocks
Worn shocks and struts significantly reduce your ability to control your vehicle. For maximum driver safety, comfort, and control, Gabriel recommends that you have your shocks or struts replaced every 80,000 km. It is also important to regularly inspect them for signs of damage or oil leaks. Dented or damaged shocks can be caused by outside forces such as stones which can impede the shocks performance.
