Strut Suspension and Shock Replacement

Your strut suspension system and vehicle shock system afford you a large amount of control and safety as you drive unyielding roads. The combination of your struts and shocks suspend your car or truck in a more balanced ride which maintains all four wheels on the road.

How Do Shocks and Struts Work?

Shocks and struts are two separate suspension mechanisms which operate together as shock absorbers for your vehicle. Specifically, the difference between these two suspension systems is that shocks provide reliable stability though they could, within reason, be removed from your vehicle. On the other hand, if your vehicle had no struts it would leave your car or truck inoperable. You literally would not be able to drive your vehicle without struts. The vehicle would fall to the ground, and stay there.
