Dan was great. He arrived exactly on time and finished up the work in a couple of hours while I worked at the office. He was extremely friendly and professional even when there was an issue with the office landlord. My car is driving great now and YourMechanic.com via Dan was able to do the work for literally hundreds less than what any shop had quoted me. Once you add in the fact that it all took place at my office building and I didn't have to take time off or out of my weekend to get it taken care of and you've got a real winner. I'll be making sure to check YouMechanic.com for quotes first

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.
