After many years and tens of thousands of miles, Bellwood residents' suspension system components do wear out, but how long that takes depends a lot on how you drive in Bellwood. As you can imagine, if most of your driving is on smooth IL highways, your shock absorbers will last a lot longer than if you do most of your driving on bumpy roads or hauling heavy loads between Bellwood and Chicago. In addition to just wearing out, vehicle suspension components can be damaged in an accident or by a hard impact – like a pothole on a local road , hitting a curb or a rock in a bumpy Bellwood road. Because the life span of shocks can vary so widely, your recommends periodic inspections.
