Replacement of shocks and struts

A strut is a complete suspension assembly. Shocks are part of the overall suspension. Not every vehicle has both shocks and struts. Some vehicles only have struts, while others have only shocks. The two basic functions performed by shocks and struts include enabling ride control and dampening spring oscillation. This prevents the vehicle from bucking when poor road surfaces are encountered. The replacement of shocks and struts enhances vehicle performance and prevents the wear of your tires and suspension parts, including the ball joints, steering linkage, springs and C.V. joints.
