What does it sound like when your shocks are going?

As far as what they sound like, normally you hear nothing unless a shock is broken. There are however warning signs of worn shocks or struts. STEERINGWorn shocks and struts can allow excessive body roll when turning, which affects the vehicle's ability to safely steer around objects in the road. STOPPINGWorn shocks and struts can allow too much weight transfer to the front wheels during braking, which could result in a measurable increase in stopping distance. STABILITYWorn shocks and struts can allow excessive roll, sway and bounce while the vehicle is in motion, which reduces the driver's control.

Is it dangerous to drive with bad rear struts on my 2007 Nissan Altima?

a 2007 altima does not have rear struts. it has shocks and coil springs. if the rear shocks are bad and the car is bouncing up and down several times when you hit dips in the road or after you come to a stop your shocks could be bad and then yes it could cause you to wreck in certain situations. to test your shocks bounce the rear by pushing up and down several times real hard on each corner. after releasing the car it should only bounce 1 1/2 to 2 times before stopping. any more than this and the shocks may be bad.
