SHOCK ABSORBER, COIL SPRING AND STRUT REPLACEMENT
Is your car getting increasingly bumpy or do you feel it pulling to one side? Does your car excessively bounce on rough roads? Are the tire treads wearing unevenly or too quickly?
If you've answered "yes" to any of these questions, your vehicle may need suspension repair and most likely shocks and struts replacement.
When a shock absorber or strut is worn out, the vehicle is prone to bounce and may become difficult to drive when it encounters rough road surfaces. When you are on the road, the steering and suspension system of your vehicle is what helps you stay in control. The entire weight of your vehicle is carried by your shocks and steering system.

SHOCKS AND STRUTS REPLACEMENT
There are many other obvious signs that point to worn out shocks and struts and the necessity to replace shocks and struts, including:

- Fluid leakage
- Plunging forward on stops
- Premature tire tread wear
- The car bottoming out
- The feel of rocking and rolling when driving around corners
WHEN SHOULD YOU REPLACE SHOCKS AND STRUTS?
While every vehicle is different, most technicians recommend having your shocks and struts inspected at the first sign of potential wear or every 50,000 miles. After fully inspecting your vehicle, our technicians will make a recommendation for any necessary repairs.
When replacing worn shocks and struts, technicians will restore your car to a smoother ride. You'll also immediately notice improved control, better stability and shorter braking distances while you're behind the wheel.
Our certified technicians can examine all of your suspension components in order to make sure that your steering and shocks are operating properly, and will also inspect:
- Alignment issues
- Impacts or Struts
- Loose power steering belts
- Out of balance tires
- Power steering fluid
- Steering wheel alignment
- Tightness of bolts and nuts
- Uneven wear on tires
Our expert technicians will also inspect your wheel balance and tire to see whether the problems are tire-related or not.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SHOCKS AND STRUTS?
A vehicle will have either a shock or a strut at each wheel, never both. The major difference between shocks and struts is that a strut is a structural part of the vehicles suspension system where a shock is not. A strut is also crucial part of the vehicles steering system and greatly affects alignment angles.
What are struts?
Struts are the structural part of the suspension system and are located on the front end of nearly every front-wheel drive vehicle. A strut includes numerous suspension parts into a compact assembly that includes:
- Coil Spring
- Shock Absorbers
- Spring Seats
- Steering Knuckle
- Strut Bearing
What are shocks?
Shocks, also referred to as shock absorbers, are a key component of the suspension system. Shocks control the impact and rebound movement of your vehicle’s springs and suspension; they maintain tires contact with the road surface at all times. Without shocks, the wheels on your car, it will actually bounce off of the road surface, and vibrate erratically on rough roads. We carry the most popular brands of shocks, including: Monroe shocks, KYB, Bilstein, RFY, Gabriel, Rancho, AC Delco, Koni and more.
