Shocks and Struts
If you’re experiencing a bumpy or shaky ride, have poor steering response or stiffness while steering your vehicle it may be time to change your shocks and struts. Shocks and struts help support your vehicle’s weight and keep your wheels in contact with the road for a smooth ride. If you’re wondering when to replace them, you can simply call our Tinley service experts to book an appointment at 708-336-3163.
Difference between Shocks and Struts
Both shocks and struts perform a similar function, however, they cannot be replaced with one another. Shock absorbers are crucial components to a vehicle’s suspension system and control the impact and rebound movements, essentially absorbing the energy of the road. Without shocks, the wheels on your vehicle will bounce off the surface of the road and vibrate uncontrollably. Struts are an important part of the suspension and support the weight of the vehicle and can adapt to road irregularities. It’s important to know the difference between shocks and struts.
When to Replace Them?
Consider replacing shocks and struts if you see visual warning signs such as noticeable fluid leaks or you’re experiencing a really bumpy or shaky ride when driving. If your vehicle has over 50k in miles, you may also need shocks and struts replacement. Visit our website to shop GM parts and find your Tinley shocks and struts.
