Shocks & Struts

A vehicle’s suspension system, including the shocks and struts, improves handling and how the car rides.

Shocks absorb bumps and uneven areas on the road, keeping the driver in the car and the other components from experiencing too much disruption from potholes, speed bumps and other obstructions. Struts are a key part of the suspension system, mounting the coil spring which helps determine vehicle alignment and the height of the vehicle. This important system can also impact stopping distance, which could mean the difference between a safe stop and an automobile accident.
