Shocks, Struts & Suspension Replacement
Your vehicle's shocks, struts and suspension are key components to ensure your vehicle's performance and a more comfortable ride. As such, it's important to properly maintain these components on your vehicle.
What are shocks and struts?
Put simply, shocks on a vehicle work in unison with the coil springs (or leaf springs) to support the vehicle and dampen the car from bouncing as it drives. They take in the shock of the day-to-day bumps in the road so that you have a smooth drive. Struts are a structural element part of your vehicle's suspension and support the weight of the vehicle while also absorbing any impacts from the road, ensuring that your vehicle rides smoothly.>
What is a car's suspension?
Your vehicle's suspension system is the collection of tires, axles, framing, air, and shock absorbers that are underneath your vehicle. These components allow your vehicle to have a smooth ride and help you to drive with proper handling. Proper maintenance of your car's suspension is vital to a safe driving experience.
