Shocks and Struts

Shocks and struts do far more than give you a comfortable ride. They affect your car's stopping distance and ultimately your safety. They also play a significant role in tire wear and steering control. Yet they are the most overlooked maintenance item in car repair today. Why? Because they're expensive to replace and most drivers aren't aware of their importance in safety and steering control.

What the heck is a strut?

The easy answer is that a strut is a fancy name for a shock absorber. But it's not quite that simple. Car makers use struts as part of the structure of your car. They support the entire wheel assembly of your car. You can drive without a shock absorber. You cannot drive without a strut. Because they are part of the support structure, they are built sturdier. That is why they are 40 - 60% more expensive than shocks.
