How can I tell if my car needs springs or shocks?


Answer by  technogeek (6640)

If, when you step on the brakes, your car bounces a lot, then your shocks or your struts probably need to be replaced.

Well if you visually inspect them and they look damaged or worn then replace them. If the ride is harsher or the car rolls more than it used to then they need to be replaced.

If it feels like you are bouncing to much when you go over pot holes, you can feel it when they need to be changed.

most times cars springs wont go it will be the shocks best way to test this is a old method but works push on the front or back of the car hard a few times if it continues to bounce after you stop the shocks are bad
