Shock and Strut Replacement: Maintaining Control and Ride Quality in Your Vehicle

Have you noticed a lack of stability at speed while driving your car? What about diminished handling or harsher ride quality? If your car has been displaying these symptoms, it may be time to have new struts or shocks installed.

Shocks and struts play an integral role in your car's suspension system. Together, they smooth out road inconsistencies and keep your vehicle stable. These components have a major effect on safety, comfort, and performance alike, so it's important to make sure they're properly maintained. Schedule an online appointment at our dealership's service center.

What are Shocks and Struts?

Shocks and struts perform very similar roles, both acting as shock damping systems. Any time your vehicle goes over a bump, hits a pothole, or simply drives at a high speed, these components are working hard to smooth out the ride and keep the car stable.

Shock absorbers are relatively simple components. They consist of a simple tube assembly that's filled with hydraulic shock absorption fluid. As the shock is compressed, it absorbs the energy of a bump or hole to prevent jarring or bouncing. Shocks are bolted to the suspension and fill a support role.

Struts use a tube and hydraulic system much like shock absorbers. The main difference is that struts also incorporate a spring, which wraps around the cylinder for additional support. Struts also fill a structural role, unlike shocks.

Why Should You Replace Shocks and Struts?

Both shocks and struts wear down with use. Leave shocks and struts on too long and you could end up with a vehicle that bucks and bounces more than you would like. Worn out shocks and struts can also lead to instability at speed and lack of control around corners.

How Do You Replace Shocks and Struts?

Replacing shocks can be a pretty simple procedure for many cars. It's often as straightforward as removing the wheels, removing the bolts, and putting in the new part as before. Struts, on the other hand, can be a bit more challenging. Our Nissan techs have the know-how to deal with the compressed spring that's part of strut assembly.
