Struts and Shocks Replacement

What are shocks and struts?

Shocks and struts are important parts of your car’s suspension system. Struts support the springs inside your suspension, and the shocks, or shock absorbers, provide a smooth ride. Your vehicle’s suspension system needs to be maintained consistently to ensure your vehicle is operating safely. Maintaining the struts and shocks is vital as part of your car maintenance.
