Change your Honda CIVIC shock absorbers

Your front and rear shock absorbers play an essential role in absorbing impact, road-holding, and the comfortable driving of your Honda CIVIC. Their lifespan is 60,000 to 100,000 miles, but it is recommended to check them every 20,000 miles. Front shock absorbers that have reached the end of their life are dangerous, because they no longer help the vehicle hold the road, and grip on turns in the rain and on braking are greatly reduced. The price of new Honda shock absorbers will vary between £30 and £60, depending on the manufacturer.

How to detect signs of wear on your CIVIC shock absorbers?

Wear and tear will depend on the environment in which you drive (for example, mountainous or urban areas), as well as your driving style (sporty or relaxed).

Wear may be observed in your Honda CIVIC shock absorbers when parking on a flat surface. An oil leak, or abnormal and irregular wear on the tyres represent visible signs of worn shock absorbers. Press down on the bumper of your Honda CIVIC and then relax the pressure; if you notice that the vehicle "bounces" (in an oscillating movement), your shock absorbers have probably reached the end of their life. Even if they are sold individually, it is absolutely essential to purchase and change them in pairs, in order to avoid throwing your CIVIC out of balance. Mister-Auto offers top brands of shock absorber, such as KYB, MONROE or SACHS.
