Shocks

Gentlemen,

At what mileage should shock absorbers be changed?
Thanks

About every 25k, but it depends on the vehicle.

they should be changed when they wear out.

my front struts went to 155,000 miles before they wore out, the rears shocks are still original--178,000 miles today.

every car's weight, road surfaces, driving habits, tire sizes, uses of vehicle are all different.

if they leak, or the car bounces too much, or bottoms out, or 'bangs' when driving over the smallest bumps---all signs it's time to change them.

they have no set time or mileage interval.
