Shocks & Struts

Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts service involves inspecting, repairing, or replacing the shock absorbers and struts in a vehicle’s suspension system. The shocks and struts play a crucial role in maintaining stability, comfort, and control while driving. 

Key Features

  • Visual Inspection: The technician will visually inspect the shocks, struts, and related components for signs of wear, leaks, or damage. This includes checking for oil leaks from the shocks and assessing the condition of bushings and mounting hardware.

    Regular testing helps identify potential issues before they lead to a breakdown.

  • Road Test: In some cases, the technician may perform a road test to assess the vehicle’s handling, ride comfort, and suspension performance. This helps identify any issues that may not be immediately apparent during a stationary inspection.

  • Shock Absorber Replacement: If the shocks are worn out, leaking, or not performing optimally, the technician may recommend replacing them. This involves removing the old shocks and installing new ones to restore proper damping and control.

  • Strut Replacement: Like shocks, struts may also need replacement if they are damaged or worn out. Struts are a more complex component, combining the shock absorber and other suspension elements into a single unit. Replacement involves removing the old struts and installing new ones.

  • Suspension System Inspection: The entire suspension system is inspected for wear, damage, or loose components. This includes checking control arms, ball joints, and other parts that contribute to the vehicle’s stability.
