Steering and Suspension

Shocks and Struts

Time to replace your shocks/struts?

Replacing these worn components will restore the ride control and handling the vehicle demonstrated when it was new and reduces wear on other steering and suspension components. Your tires will also last longer with a vehicle that has restored shocks/struts.

If your vehicle bottoms out over bumps in the road or keeps bouncing for a while after hitting a bump, your suspension could be worn out. Other signs are strange noises over bumps, excessive body lean on turns or a sharp dive downwards when you brake hard. It can be tricky to notice because shocks wear out gradually and many people just get used to the bouncier ride. If you’re not sure pop by and we’ll take a quick look for you.

What’s included?

  1. Premium quality UAP/NAPA parts (Made by Monroe)
  2. Certified Technicians
  3. 12 month warranty on parts and labor

Signs You Need New Shocks or Struts

Your vehicle “bottoms out” going over bumps, is overly bouncy or springy, excessive body lean while turning.

The benefits of vehicle alignment

Our certified technicians provide all of the services necessary to maintain your vehicle’s warranty and more.

Do I need to fix my suspension if I don’t mind the bouncing?

If you leave it for too long, your loose suspension can begin to wear down other parts of your vehicle. It can mess up your steering and put extra wear on your tires. So yes, you should take care of it sooner rather than later. Plus, new shocks and struts will restore control and handling, making your ride safer and more enjoyable.
