Frequently Asked Questions

What are car shocks and struts and what do they do?

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.

What is the difference between a car shock and a strut?

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.

What are the common warning signs that my shocks or struts need to be replaced?
  • Leaking fluid from the shock or strut body
  • Dented or damaged shock or strut bodies
  • Broken or worn mounts or bushings
  • Tire wear is cupped and irregular.
  • During turns, the vehicle sways or leans.
  • Excessive bouncing following a road bump
  • A difficult, rough, or unstable ride
  • Steering is jerky or produces noise.
