At our shop in Lake Alfred, FL, we can repair or replace the shocks and struts on your vehicle.
Although shocks and struts are often used interchangeably, they are two entirely different things. The main difference between shocks and struts, however, is that your struts are a component of your vehicle’s structure, while your shocks are not. Regardless of whether you need assistance with your car’s shocks or your vehicle’s struts, at Scotty Muffler & Auto Repair, we are here to help.
There are several signs that indicate you need to bring your vehicle into our shop in Lake Alfred, Florida to have your shocks and struts checked out. These include some of the following:
- Your tires exhibit signs of unusual wear.
- The struts on your vehicle look dented or damaged.
- Your vehicle responds poorly when you steer
- You experience a bumpy ride whenever you get behind the wheel.
- You notice instability in your vehicle when you try to bring it to a stop.
Although there is no set time frame for how often you should have your shocks and struts looked at, these vehicle parts generally need to be replaced after you drive your car several thousand miles. When you turn to us, we will provide you with an honest assessment of what to do to ensure that your shocks and struts are working like they should.
Contact us today at Scotty Muffler & Auto Repair for more information about shocks and struts and when you might need to get the ones on your vehicle replaced. We look forward to hearing from you and meeting all of your vehicle maintenance and repair needs.
