I was a bit skeptical about the reviews and comparisons to yourmechanic vs. auto shops or dealerships. Surprisingly, this has been one of the best auto appointments for any of my rides. Ben Smith is an amazing mechanic (was able to find out what else he's worked on and that list is impressive) and I've never met one from a dealership or shop that gave me or my wife a sense that they knew exactly what the car needs. We saw first hand how it should be done (he found the problem immediately with just a tip from the Vag-Com). He told and showed us what is necessary unlike being told what was found behind closed doors (or inside a shop or dealer's garage - where you know they jack up the costs). I was actually going to go by my searches online and change a few things in the engines that would have been a total waste of time/money before we found your site. I think this house-call auto business is fantastic and although I never want to have anything done - we will always consider Ben and this site first. Thanks for being there and having such a great concept, guys! We will spread the word...

All about Strut Assembly Replacement

The strut assembly, an essential part of your car's suspension system, is attached to the front wheels and is used to absorb road shock, providing a smooth ride. Most cars made after 1995 have shock absorbers in the rear and strut assemblies in the front suspension. Older cars may have shock absorbers at all four wheels. Faulty or damaged struts affect the ride comfort as well as the braking effectiveness. The strut assembly, located in the front or rear of the car, is basically a shock absorber with a spring coil for additional support. The front wheels have the extra weight of the engine and need extra support to absorb shock from the road. The shock absorber has a piston and a cylinder that contains a gas or liquid substance. The spring is attached to the piston. When you drive over a bump, the piston inside the cylinder moves up and down against the gas/fluid and the spring, absorbing the shock from the bump. The strut assembly takes a beating over time, especially on bumpy roads. It will eventually start leaking the gas/liquid, leaving you with an unstable or rugged ride. With worn out struts, it is possible that the tires could lose contact with the road and/or the tires will wear out prematurely.
