Is it really necessary to replace my shocks and struts? YES!


Some automobiles only have struts, and some only have shocks, while the majority has both. Shocks are a part of the overall suspension. A strut is an inclusive suspension assembly.  The two main roles performed by shocks and struts include aiding in ride control and dampening spring oscillation. This protects the vehicle from bouncing every time it meets a bump in the road. The replacement of shocks and struts not only improves vehicle performance; it will prevent the wear of your tires and suspension parts, including the steering linkage, ball joints, C.V. joints and springs.
