Shock and Strut replacement in Riverdale, UT

Shock/Strut Replacement at Larry H. Miller Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Riverdale

The shocks and struts of your suspension make up its most crucial components. As your new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram cruises across uneven pavement, the shocks and struts help keep your vehicle well-balanced throughout the drive and minimize the impact the rest of the vehicle feels. In this manner, the undercarriage of your car, truck, or SUV remains free from excess damage and the ride remains smooth for you and your passengers. When the shocks and struts of your suspension come due for replacement, schedule a service appointment at Larry H. Miller Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Riverdale.

What do Shocks and Struts Do?

The shocks, or "shock absorbers," of your suspension come located near the axle and involve an intricate series of components made to absorb the impact of bumps in the road. The shocks use a special hydraulic fluid, or nitrogen gas, pushed through a sealed tube by pistons, which helps to minimize impact and keep the ride smooth. The struts serve a similar purpose in minimizing impact, and include the coil spring of the suspension. However, the struts also integrate most other parts including the shocks, and support the weight of the vehicle. Despite a similar appearance, you cannot use the shocks and struts interchangeably, due to the intricacies of the tasks they perform.

When to Service

The shocks and struts of your suspension will completely wear out by about 50,000 miles or so and require replacement. However, if you tend to take on more aggressive terrain frequently, you may wish to consider maintenance sooner. If you detect any of these signs of bad shocks/struts, schedule a replacement appointment immediately:

  • Hydraulic fluid leak
  • Noticeable damage
  • Excessive bouncing or shaking as you drive
  • Stiffness or noise when steering/braking
  • Worn tires- malfunctioning suspension greatly effects your alignment, which can lead to uneven and premature wear on your tires.
