Let’s Talk About Shocks & Struts
Let’s talk shocks and struts.
Shock absorbers and struts last a long time for Corcoran area drivers and wear out slowly for most vehicles. But the harsh winters and rough roads in the spring really beat them up and shorten their life. They’re easy to take for granted, but your shocks and struts do a very important job, so you need to pay attention to them. Their job is to keep your tires on the road; and your tires are what connect your vehicle to the road and allow you to safely handle your car through turns, over bumps and even stop in time.
When your shocks and struts are worn, your tires bounce excessively over bumps. Your vehicle will wallow through corners, your front-end will dive when you stop and the rear-end of the car will squat when you accelerate. All this hurts your ability to control your vehicle. And your ride just isn’t as comfortable.
Worn shocks or struts cause excessive tire wear so Maple Grove and Plymouth area drivers will have to replace their tires sooner than they should. Worn shocks and struts also stress other suspension and steering parts, causing them to wear prematurely. Struts are actually a major structural component of the suspension system; there’s a lot riding on them.
Summer is finally here and there will be driving than ever. Trips to the cabin, Vacations and all the kids’ summer activities.
Replacing worn shocks and struts saves money in the long run – and of course, you can’t really put a price on your safety and that of your passengers. At Pro-Tech Auto Repair, we generally recommend replacing shocks and struts at 80,000 to 100,000 miles.
When it’s time for new shocks or struts, we’ve got you covered in the Rogers, Hanover and Dayton area. At Pro-Tech Auto Repair Inc, we can give you back the ride and handling of a new vehicle. And if you have special needs we can help you there too. We have premium shocks and struts that’ll improve your performance. We can even help you with upgraded, heavy-duty shocks that’ll give you the confidence you need to handle those big towing or hauling jobs.
Corcoran experts recommend replacing all four shocks at the same time so that handling is even at each wheel.
