Shock and Strut Replacement
Shock and Strut Replacement Service
Shock and Strut Replacement Service, a shock or strut will last roughly 50,000 miles. In that time, your car’s shocks and struts will have cycled more than 85 million times, resulting in wear and tear on their internal components. If your car’s mileage exceeds even that amount, it’s probably time to consider replacing those suspension components. Worn-out suspension components may reduce the stability and safety by diminishing driver control.
Symptoms of worn shocks and struts
Symptoms of worn shocks and struts are there, you just have to pay attention. Sometimes, the front end of your vehicle dives a little upon braking or the rear end of your vehicle buckles upon speeding up. You vehicle may also sway on turns, bounce pull, slide, or develop a crooked steering wheel. One of the simplest signs of suspension issues will be uneven tire wear, too. Suspension issues may also wear and tear on other suspension system components and your tires more rapidly. It is important to know shocks and struts do not always show visual cues of damage or wear.
Some driving studies have shown that replacing your shocks and struts after 50,000 miles could improve your vehicle’s braking distance by up to 10 feet. We offer shock and strut replacement services made specifically to bring your vehicle’s suspension system to factory specifications. New shocks and struts result in an improved ride, better handling, enhanced vehicle control, greater stability, shorter braking distance, more safety and superior comfort.
