Improve your vehicle’s control by having new shocks or struts put by an ASE-certified automotive mechanic near you. Last year, our specialists at Aladdin replaced over 550,000 shocks and struts.
Worn shocks and struts can alter how your wheels interact with the road. This can result in severe swaying, hydroplaning, deterioration of performance, and reduced road control and holding. If your car isn’t handling as well as it used to, have one of our experienced technicians near you inspect the shocks or struts.
A shock or strut has a lifespan of around 50,000 kilometers. Your vehicle’s shocks and struts will have cycled more than 85 million times over that time. If your vehicle’s suspension has more than 50,000 miles on it, consider replacing the components.
The life of a shock or strut is roughly 50,000 miles. In that period, your vehicle’s shocks and struts will have cycled more than 85 million times. If your vehicle has more than 50,000 miles on its suspension, consider having the components replaced.
Shocks are hydraulic pump-like devices that aid in the regulation of your vehicle’s springs and suspension’s impact and rebound movement. Shocks assist your vehicle is coming to a complete stop. New shocks or struts can help you stop up to ten feet faster while also improving vehicle stability and driver control.
A shock is a self-contained damping device that is often mounted near the vehicle’s wheel. The shock is attached to the vehicle’s chassis on one end and the differential housing on the other. It’s a hydraulic system. A strut works on the same hydraulic principle as a shock, with the key difference being that it also includes the vehicle’s suspension spring and spring seats. A strut is joined to the chassis at its top and, in most cases, to the lower control arm at its bottom.
