Put the car up on a lift. Jacking and stands is possible too. Spin the wheel freely. Look at the edge of the wheel. If it goes in and out from the edge, the wheel is bent. Think of it as a...

I would make sure you have money saved up for repairs. It's just a matter of time with the car. If you're putting 5k miles on it a year, not a problem right away. 15k miles? Get a newer car...

So long, farewell Auf Wiedersehen, goodnight

I wouldn't worry about them unless your ride feels like crap. If the shocks are leaking, replace them. Otherwise, keep them.

As of yet, I have not run into an unethical service adviser. The worst they do is say I need to replace my tires a bit earlier than I want to, but then I run them down pretty far.

They can do it wrong, but it won't make much of a difference. Your battery might not last as long. That is all. Nothing to sweat about.
