A key to safe driving is a properly maintained suspension system. Worn or loose components, including shocks and struts, affect the suspension system's ability to control motion and alignment angles, resulting in a deterioration of vehicle handling and stability, and accelerated tire wear. A properly maintained suspension system ensures a safe comfortable ride. Let our certified service technicians diagnose and give you expert advice on the condition of your shocks and struts. All repairs use only quality, dependable parts from top brands such as Monroe, KYB, and Gabriel.
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 crucial part of the vehicles steering system and affects alignment angles. Generally, it's recommended you replace your shocks or struts every 50,000 miles. Some signs of failing shocks or struts include taking potholes and speed bumps especially hard, a front-end nose-dive when braking, and any signs of leaking hydraulic shock fluid.
