The Differences Between Shocks & Struts
You often hear shocks and struts lumped together, but do you know the difference? We want our customers to understand the work we’re performing on their cars, trucks, and SUVs. Learn more about shocks and struts:
- Shocks – Also called shock absorbers, shocks keep your car from bouncing up and down. They also improve the handling of your vehicle. Shocks protect parts of your vehicle that are expensive and not very flexible. The shocks absorb the force from bumps, dips, and potholes in the road. As your shocks wear out, you’ll start to feel every bump. A shock inspection can determine if they need to be replaced, so your vehicle drives like new again.
- Struts – These parts were invented for lighter, smaller vehicles that utilize front-wheel drive. Struts absorb some of the bumps your vehicle drives over. Struts also work to maintain the proper height of your vehicle and are found where the body and chassis are connected. Sometimes struts can be used to do minor alignments.
