When you start to feel every last imperfection in the road, odds are you need to replace shock absorbers. Shock absorbers play a very important role in the function of your suspension system. They force heat through a series of valves within the shock body, which controls unwanted suspension movement.
What does that mean? It means that a shock absorber helps your tires stay in contact with the road's surface. The slightest bit of wear can affect ride quality, handling and balance when the vehicle is in motion. Further translation: It gives you a bumpy ride and, quite possibly, a bruised tailbone.
