Frequently Asked Questions:

What are shocks and struts?
Shocks and struts are components of a vehicle's suspension system that help absorb shocks from the road and maintain stability while driving. They work to control the movement of the vehicle's springs, ensuring a smooth and controlled ride.
How do shocks and struts differ?
Shocks and struts serve similar purposes but are structurally different. Shocks are standalone components that primarily control the up-and-down motion of the vehicle. Struts, on the other hand, are an integrated part of the suspension system and provide structural support in addition to damping functions.
What are the signs of worn shocks and struts?
Signs of worn shocks and struts include excessive bouncing or swaying while driving, uneven tire wear, a bumpy or uncomfortable ride, and increased stopping distance. Visible leakage of fluid from the shock or strut is also a clear indication of a problem.
How often should shocks and struts be replaced?
There's no set mileage for shock and strut replacement, as it depends on various factors such as driving conditions, vehicle usage, and manufacturer recommendations. However, a general guideline is to have them inspected every 50,000 miles and replaced if necessary.
What happens if I don't replace worn shocks and struts?
Continuing to drive with worn shocks and struts can lead to increased wear on other suspension components, such as tires, bushings, and ball joints. It can also compromise vehicle handling and safety, resulting in reduced control, longer braking distances, and an uncomfortable driving experience.
