Shocks and Struts Repair

Lowell's Auto Repair Provides Shocks and Struts Replacement and Repair

Shocks and struts are an important part of your car’s suspension system, which helps to absorb bumps and vibrations on the road, as well as maintain proper tire contact with the road surface. Over time, shocks and struts can wear out and need to be repaired or replaced.

Problems you might notice:

Here are some things to know about shocks and struts repair for your car:

  1. Signs of worn shocks and struts: Some common signs of worn shocks and struts include excessive bouncing or swaying while driving, a noticeable increase in braking distance, a “nose dive” when braking, uneven tire wear, and a bumpy ride.

  2. Diagnosis: A trained mechanic will be able to diagnose whether your shocks and struts need to be repaired or replaced. This may involve a visual inspection, a test drive, and/or a bounce test.

  3. Repair or replacement: Depending on the severity of the wear and tear, your mechanic may recommend either repairing or replacing your shocks and struts. Repairing can involve replacing certain components, while replacing involves installing completely new shocks and struts.

  4. Importance of timely repair: It’s important to address worn shocks and struts as soon as possible, as they can affect your car’s handling and safety on the road. Delaying repairs can also lead to additional wear and tear on other components of your car’s suspension system.

Overall, if you suspect that your car’s shocks and struts are worn out, it’s best to have them inspected by one of our qualified mechanics and repaired or replaced if necessary. This will help ensure that your car is safe and comfortable to drive.
