What an awesome experience! Total convenience, honesty, professional, and skillful service. Initially, I was a little apprehensive about trusting this company because I happened upon them on the internet. During the very first encounter, Chad, my mechanic immediately put me at ease with his professionalism and his knowledge as he carefully explained the problem and offered the solution. He conveniently went out and got the necessary parts and serviced my car, all in a timely manner. I have already recommended him to friends and family. I will also recommend him to my clients as well. I have also determined that Chad is my new mechanic! Lastly, YourMechanic is a great company, Chad is an awesome mechanic and it all added up to be a superb experience!!!! Thanks again Chad for a job well done.

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.
