Research on Shock Absorber for Ford Ranger

Checking in on your Ford Ranger shock absorber every once in a while is important. Without your shock absorber, you run the risk of damaging your suspension system, causing major problems, and posing a risk while you are driving. Keeping your suspension in good health requires making sure that your shock absorber is in pristine condition.

What is the Purpose of the Shock Absorber?

Your Ford Ranger shock absorber has two key roles. First, it controls the movement of your suspension system--particularly the up/down motion of the wheels. Second, your shock absorbers limit how your ride is effected by 'absorbing' the shock or impact from the road. The process is called damping or spring oscillations and only occurs when the absorber uses oils and gas that have been valved to capture the excess energy in your suspension. If for any reason this process fails, then your Ford Ranger will have difficulty providing you with a smooth ride.

Signs That It's Time For a New Shock Absorber

In order to keep your shock absorber in tip-top shape, check on it for normal wear and tear regularly. The best way to accomplish that is completing a check each time you rotate and balance your tires. However, it's not 100 percent full proof and you may begin to experience symptoms such as:

o Dings and Dents: During your inspection, if you notice dents, damages, or punctures go ahead and change your shock absorber. It will save you the headache of having to possibly have work done on the entire suspension system.

o Tough Ride: If you are hitting your head on the roof of your Ford Ranger more than you would like then test things out a bit. The next time you go over a set of railroad tracks or a pothole, pay attention to the length of time it takes for your truck to settle down after the impact. If it's more than a few seconds, then it may be time to replace your shock absorber.

o Leaks: While inspecting your shock absorber, look for any leaks or evidence of a leak on the absorber itself. Shock absorbers contain fluid and if damaged they will leak and not work properly.

One last thing to consider is keeping a close eye on the body of your car. If you notice that it is lower to the ground or drags while you are driving--check your shock absorbers. If it gets to this point don't ignore it. This issue can lead to an inability for you to control sharp turns and have an increase in body leans. When this happens, it can be dangerous for you and other drivers.

Replacing Your Shock Absorbers

Your When it comes to your Ford Ranger shock absorber replacement it can be costly. This is because you have shock absorbers on either side of your truck in the front and the rear. A Ford Ranger rear shock absorber replacement for a 2004 model on both sides can estimate anywhere between $160.00 to $200.00.

When it comes to replacing your truck's shock absorbers, shop around on PartsGeek.com PartsGeek is an online auto retail that has a wide selection of Ford Ranger auto parts for a great price.
