Mustang Shocks and Struts at CJ Pony Parts
Driving your 2000 Mustang without struts and shocks would be pretty uncomfortable, and in some circumstances downright dangerous. The front struts and rear shock absorbers are vital parts of the 2000 Mustang suspension system. The front struts have a function similar to shocks, but with the added duty of providing structural support for the front suspension system. The rear shocks in your 2000 Mustang dampen the rebound that occurs when springs react to bumps and uneven roads.

2000 Struts & Shocks

Sometimes it’s easy to tell if your 2000 Mustang needs new struts and shocks. If you hit a bump in the road and continue to bounce along well after the bump, your 2000 Mustang struts and shocks are not doing their job. If you encounter a road that is extremely rough, the tires may rebound with the spring and lose contact with the road. That’s why struts and shocks are an important part of the Mustang suspension system.

Replacing Worn-Out Mustang Struts and Shocks

Replacing worn-out struts and shocks is a key part of regular vehicle maintenance. Automotive experts believe that struts and shocks should be replaced every 50,000 miles or so. The life of your 2000 Mustang shocks can vary depending on what kind of roads you drive on the most. If you log most of your miles on smooth and level highways, you can expect your struts and shocks to last longer than if your daily commute consists of long, windy and bumpy back roads. The less work the struts and shocks have to do over their life, the longer they’ll last.

If you suspect your struts and shocks are worn-out and in need of replacement, try this simple and easy test. To perform a bounce test, park the vehicle on a level surface. To check the front struts, find an area on the front bumper where you can safely put all of your weight. Then quickly remove your weight and watch the vehicle. The struts should return the car to the proper position. However, if there is additional motion or bouncing before it settles, they are no longer dampening. The same test should be performed to check the rear shocks.

Luckily, replacing your 2000 Mustang struts and shocks is a relatively simple and straightforward job. The average mechanically-inclined do-it-yourselfer should be able to do this job in a few hours with some basic shop tools: lift or jack and jack stands, short extension, wrenches: 18 mm and 22 mm, swivel.
