We are available to handle repair and maintenance of shocks & struts in the Auburndale area.
When you drive over a bump in the road, you might feel a bit of a jolt when you’re in your car, but the shocks & struts help to maintain a mostly smooth ride. Shocks & struts are unique aspects of your vehicle, but each plays an important role in your overall safety and comfort. The struts are actually part of the structure of your car, while the shocks are separate components that can be removed and replaced. If you have ever seen shocks on a bicycle or other mode of transportation, you know that they look similar to a spring. They help absorb the shock of going over a bump and keep the car steady.
There are a few signs that something might be wrong with the shocks or struts in your car. These include unusual wear on the tires, instability or excessive vibrations when you apply the brakes, poor steering, or a bumpy ride, regardless of how fast you are driving. If you take a closer look near the wheels of your vehicle, you could also notice dents or other damage on the struts. These are all warning signs that you need to take your car in for professional service as soon as possible. Continuing to drive with damaged shocks or struts could cause further damage to your vehicle’s chassis or tires.
