Ben

Ben was beyond professional! He was on time and was able to determine what was wrong with my car within the first few minutes. Afterward, he explained to me what probably caused the problem. The first mechanic was a no-show, which turned out to be a blessing for me! Thanks a million, Ben, and thanks to Michael for the way you handled everything. I will definitely refer you to my colleagues.

For some reason the address and GPS came up wrong and Isai ended up going in the wrong direction. But we connected via phone and redirected him to my place. Great service. Very polite and clear explanation of service and recommended solutions to other vehicle problems. Would definitely recommend this tech and Your Mechanic to other.

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.
