Help please!!

(1991 Ford Explorer)
in Bridgewater, MA on June 27, 2011
I have just bought a 91' Ford Explorer, and I know nothing about cars. Someone told me that I need to do work on the shocks and breaks. What does that mean? I have no idea on how much it is going to cost. Any help. And is it still drivable?? The breaks still work too.

I encourage you to build a relationship with a local shop that can give you an honest evaluation about your Explorer.

To "do work on the shocks and brakes", it means that someone has assessed that there are worn or failed parts and that service is required. But it's hard to count on speculation and opinion. It's best to have the car looked at and get the facts. Some places may even do a complimentary inspection, with the thought that obviously you will probably want to fix something.

Good luck!
