Replacement of the strut or shock unit. On vehicles with struts, replacement of the strut cartridge, spring and bearing plate may need to be replaced
Why is the service recommended?
Leaking hydraulic oil of the strut or shock unit(s). If a strut or shock is leaking, that indicates the internal seals have failed.
Could also be recommended due to mileage of a vehicle: typically greater than 50k, struts or shocks should be replaced. Most units fail at this mileage in controlling the 1/8″ to 1/4″ of up and down motion of the tire. This amount of excess motion can wear tires irregularly, creating a loud tire noise.
Extremely worn struts or shocks could also allow the vehicle to loose control
How does our service help?
Restores or increases the original ride, handling and control to the vehicle.
Estimated service time: 2-3 hours.
