Have you ever driven down the highway and felt your car pull slightly to the left? Or maybe you had to brake quickly and the vehicle began to turn without you turning the steering wheel. You had a mechanic rotate your tires and do an alignment but the issue didn't stop. You may have an issue with the shocks.
Shocks stabilize the vehicle. They are highly important when it comes to braking. Not only are they designed to give you a smooth ride, but they are meant to keep your vehicle straight when accelerating and braking.
Bad shocks can even be the reason your car spins out when trying to brake. It is important to have shocks checked so you know you will have a safe and smooth ride.
