If your ride doesn’t seem as smooth as it used to be, it may be time to replace your Chevy Silverado shocks. Your shocks are an important part of your vehicle’s suspension system. These tube-in-tube structures are designed to control the motion of your springs, which is essential for your vehicle handling and control.
When you drive over a bump or a pothole, your springs start bouncing to absorb the shock. This bouncing movement is known as spring oscillation.
The job of your Silverado shocks is to dampen spring oscillation and keep your vehicle from continually bouncing. If your springs keep moving up and down after a bump, your tires can lose contact with the pavement, which may cause you to lose control of your vehicle during sudden stops or hard cornering. That is why it is important to make sure your Chevy Silverado shocks are in good shape. Of course, when it comes to your Silverado shocks, your ride comfort is at stake as well. Relaxed shocks tend to diminish your driving enjoyment, since it does not feel very soothing to bounce all over the road. Other than a rough ride, some of the signs of worn shocks include leaks or dents on the shock body, front end diving during stops, rear end squatting during acceleration, and uneven tire tread wear.
