    jun,

    Marami pong factors that affect a shock absorbers life. Yung sa Besta ko dati 1 year lang pinalitan na due to stress failure (hindi nakayanan ang drayber - ako!). Yung sa MB100 namin 1996 pa pero hindi pa pinapalitan.

    Yung nasa 1987 na Benz namin, once pa din lang ata pinalitan.

    Sa Pajero nasa around 1K ang average price ng KYB gas (nitrogen) shock aborbers (mas mahal yung rear kaysa sa front).

    Hindi kaya tires mo ang problema? Or the pressure you are running them in now?

    perform a visual check muna of your shock. pag may tagas ng langis ibig sabihin nun worn out na yung shocks mo. kung wala pang tagas, perform a bounce check of your car. the car should not bounce twice pag tinukuran.

    Factory shocks normally wear out after 40,000 km of use.

    Perform the above suggested tests - visual and bounce.

    Try this too -

    vehicle nose dives when braking?

    vehicle leans too much while cornering?

    These are some of the tell tale signs for shock absorber replacement.
