Check Your Shocks and Struts at Westside AutomotivePosted May 17, 2020 1:32 AM
Today we're talking to Houston drivers about shocks and struts. They're so easy for TX folks to forget about because they last so long and wear out so slowly. But your shocks are really responsible for keeping your tires on the road – so they're very important.
There's a difference between shocks and springs. Springs support the weight of the vehicle, keeping it suspended up off the axles. The shocks moderate the rebound motion as wheels hit bumps. Now a strut combines a shock and a coil spring in one compact unit.
It's best to replace all four shocks at the same time. That way you'll have even, predictable handling at all four corners. Anything less could be dangerous.
Visit Westside Automotive to have your shocks and struts inspected by a professional.
