Well, I wouldn't change shocks at all unless the ride was rough or the shocks were visibly leaking. Check them out. if no inherent problems, 75000 miles is usually recommended.

most shocks are recommended to be replaced at 80 to 100 thousand miles

Years ago, they commonly lasted 25-30 thousand miles. Today's shock absorbers will commonly last 100,000 miles or more, but the companies that make shock absorbers still urge you to get them changed at 25,000 mile intervals - because they're in business to sell shock absorbers.

Cartilage acts as a shock absorber in your body.

mabye they "absorb shock!" 2nd Answer: In actual fact, shock absorbers do not absorb shock: the springs do that. The "shock absorbers" dampen rebound (Bouncing). In a bike, the spring is built right around the dampener part.

Shock absorbers absorb shock by using hydraulic or pneumatic pressure. As a load is applied they compress and take most of the load.

no, shock absorbers are in your knees and back. Some people have flat feet.

Yes they are typically, 1992 BMW E36 for say has shock absorbers which are safety measures for accidents. They install behind bumpers to allow a 6" movement in the event you hit something (shock absorbers)

I have a leaking shock on a 2009 RAV4 with 6000 miles on it. So much for Toyota reliability.

( 2 ) shock absorbers on the front suspension and ( 2 ) shock absorbers on the rear suspension ( and if it's the same as my 1995 Ford Explorer there is a short " shock absorber " that is sideways connected to the rear differential that I didn't bother having changed )

The 1995 Buick Skylark is equipped with rear shock absorbers. There will be struts on the front of the vehicle.

If there were no shock absorbers in a car, then every single imperfection in the road surface would enter the chassis, making the car a rattling cage as it thunders down the highway. Shock absorbers make driving a more pleasurable experience.

There are many great shock absorbers sold today. It really depends on the type of vehicle. Monroe makes a great shock that will fill almost any need.

Earthquake shock absorbers do exactly what they say on the tin, they absorb some of the energy generated by an earthquake, in order to prevent structural damage. Most tall building in San Francisco are built on the shock absorbers, so that they can still stand after an earthquake

They are a replacement for shock absorbers and springs (suspension)

I had the shock absorbers changed on my Explorer by a Ford dealer using Motorcraft shocks , none of my shocks were leaking or damaged in any way but I had about 53,000 miles on them , I noticed the change as soon as I made my first turn , the turn in was sharper , there was less body " roll " , the Explorer just felt more stable . At that point I realized that shock absorbers wear so gradually that I didn't remember what it was like when it was new

have you checked the shock absorbers?

The Struts are the shock absorbers that include the spring. They are commonly referred to as McPherson Struts. Most cars now have Struts on the front and rear instead of the simple shock absorbers.

The 1997 Land Rover Discovery shock and Sobers are held in place with a retaining bolt on each end of the shock. Remove the retaining bolts and the shock will come off. Reverse the process to install the new shock absorbers.

Monotube gas shock absorbers, or De Carbon shocks

Electromagnetic shock absorbers for potential use in vehicles are fabricated and tested for their performance. They transform the energy dissipated in shock absorbers into electrical power. An Electro-magnet Shock has been fabricated. The shock consists of three assemblies: the permanent magnet assembly, the coil assembly, and the case assembly

Shock absorbers do not actually absord shock. Instead, they work through the process of transference. When the car bounces, the spring transfers the energy created to a piston in a chamber that is filled with oil. The oil causes the energy to dissapate into heat.

Yes, they have them. What is your question?
