Why does my 1995 Ford Explorer rock side to side when I go over bumps?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Bogi Lateiner, Owner and Technician at 180 Degrees Automotive Hi Trina! You probably have weak shocks, and possibly other worn suspension components. It is the job of the shocks or struts to absorb or dampen the feel of the movement of the vehicle as it goes over uneven surfaces. As the struts/shocks wear, you will feel it more and more gradually over time. It will also cause uneven wear on your tires and reduces the handling ability of the vehicle. I would take it in to a certified technician and have them check it out for you. Good luck! Bogi Lateiner http://www.180auto.com/
