Shocks and Struts are important because they help you maintain control behind the wheel.
A shock is essentially the thing that keeps the spring in check. When you go over a huge bump shock is there to dampen the oscillation of the springs. Functional shocks keep those springs in check, letting you enjoy the impact-absorbing properties of the springs without any undue bouncing after the fact.
A strut, keeps the spring in check. It’s more than just a damper, though; struts also add structural integrity to the suspension.
The best way to know if you need need new shocks or struts is to bring your vehicle in to be inspected.
Shocks and struts are integral to car control, so when they fail, your car becomes a hazard to both yourself and other drivers. Contact Jeha’s Auto Repair Center today about replacing your shocks & struts.
