I posted this same thing on Yelp, but I mean every word! Excellent service! Very happy with having some much needed brake work done with Your Mechanic and Richard. He updated me on his arrival and made me aware he could come early. I was getting my back brake rotors and pads done, and he informed me that he could get it done 30 minutes earlier than they quoted. He did a great check on the rest of my car and informed me of what I would need next since I have a car with high mileage. With the heat being up to 100 degrees and over today, I felt bad about him being out there and got him a couple bottles of cold water. He didn't complain and he even waited while I took a test drive. Even answered some questions I had about my car without making me feel stupid lol. Best price that I've seen for that kind of work, but the work was probably better than the mechanic that tried to charge me double! Glad to know that you don't have to sacrifice quality for convenience and a better price! Great first experience with Your Mechanic and a big thank you to Richard! I'm recommending him to everyone I know, and I know who to call when I need anything else 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.
