Shocks help to smooth out your vehicles ride. They provide measured resistance every time the wheels on your vehicle bounce up and down & help you maintain proper control. Due to the constant motion your car, truck or SUV is subjected to, manufacturers recommend that you have your shocks checked about once a year.
Struts control spring and suspension movement to keep tires in contact with the road. Most strut suspension systems combine coil springs and shocks into one unit and typically have a longer life than conventional shock absorbers, but will also experience wear. Manufacturers also suggest to get struts checked about once a year.
COIL SPRING SERVICE
Coil springs work with your shocks and struts to keep vehicle bounce to a minimum. All springs sag with age, as the springs weaken over time.
