The Importance of Knowing When to Replace Automotive Shocks

Automotive shocks are a very important part of your vehicle. They help to keep your tires on the road, and they help to maintain good control and vehicle safety.

So how long do automotive shocks last? There is not really a cut and dry answer to that. You may have heard that they need to be replaced every 50,000 miles, but it can depend on how you drive your car and the type of vehicle you drive. It can also depend on how much you haul or tow with your vehicle. If the shocks begin to give you problems, then that is another sign that it is time to get them replaced.

Make sure you know when to replace your car struts. If you're wondering how long do automotive shocks last, call your mechanic at Auto Max of Oregon today

Four-wheel-drive (4wd) systems used to be reserved for trucks and designed mainly for rugged off-road use. Today, there are four basic systems that send engine power to all four wheels of the vehicle--all-wheel drive (AWD), part-time AWD, part-time 4WD, and full-time 4WD.  So drivers can understand the differences, here is a brief explanation of each type of system:

Full-Time 4-Wheel Drive

Full-time 4WD systems date back nearly a century. Today, their use is mostly limited to vehicles that are designed for serious off-road duty. This drive train configuration traditionally sends engine power equally to all four wheels. They come equipped with a special secondary "low" gearing ratio for driving very slowly in rugged terrain. Many also feature locking differentials (these systems prevent one wheel from slipping if another wheel has traction).

Today’s drivers still have the option of full time 4wd systems. Because they are fully engaged at all times, you may be spending more on 4wd repair.
