Shock and Strut Repair at Tri-Valley Automotive

When it feels like you need a kidney belt just to drive your car or truck, or if your vehicle rattles your teeth, it might be time for new shocks or struts.

When you bounce your car, you are bouncing against the springs that support the car. The shocks or struts are keeping those springs under control. We can use those terms interchangeably because they do the same thing. The design is the only difference.

Worn shocks and struts can cause tire wear problems as well as making you car sick. They are also a critical component in the way the car handles or maneuvers. Worn struts can cause the car to lean too much in a corner, or the car will not respond quickly during an emergency maneuver – causing you to loose control…and that’s not good.

At approximately 100,000 miles, most shocks or struts start losing their effectiveness. You may not have noticed the change because they wear slowly. When we inspect your vehicle, we look for leaking at the shocks and struts; a good indication that they should be replaced.

If you suspect a problem, bring in your vehicle for an inspection – we’ll drive your vehicle to see how it feels. Give us a call to schedule an appointment or click the menu above to schedule an appointment online.
