Es-350 Shocks

belex,

As with anything mechanical, when it ceases to do its job correctly, and that could be at 100 000 miles, 200 000 miles or 300 000 miles. It depends on many factors and will be different for every car and how its driven and its age.

The rule of thumb is to push down hard on a corner of the car and let it go. The corner should go down, rebound up, and go part way back down and stop. If it should continue to rebound, the shock needs replacing. Don't replace them (in pairs) before they need to be, but when they go bad, replace them immediately. A wheel continually bouncing, after a dip in the road, doesn't contact the pavement long enough to give you any braking or diectional control, and is very dangerous.
