Jason was very knowledgeable and deliberate. He did an inspection to verify the complicated problem and the proceeded to acquire the OEM part required and credited me the inspection fee as he completed the repair. I would highly recommend Jason on all types of repairs and service.

Before booking any services with your mechanic, I was highly doubting whether to or not. I decided to give it a shot with the inspection. The mechanic that worked with me, Peter, took all doubts away. He arrived even early to the appointment. He was very professional, and extremely helpful. The mechanic went above and beyond expectations. Had very great customer service skills, easy to talk to and explained things thoroughly about problems with the car that needed attention. He allowed me to stress a tad less about my problem, knowing he had it fully under control.

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.
