Scott showed up on-time (actually few minutes early) for both of my appointments. He is very knowledgeable and very personable. Not only was his work outstanding but, it was a pleasure to meet him as well. I will request Scott, on all further appointments for work I need done on my vehicles.

Richard was a wonderful guy to work with. He showed up on time, and finished about an hour ahead of the three hours scheduled for the repair. He also encouraged me to watch him because he enjoys teaching the consumer what exactly is going on. I really appreciated that being somewhat of a novice when it comes to car repairs.

Carlos was on time and very professional. The repair turned out to be slightly different than what Carlos anticipated but he rolled with the punches and got us squared away in no time. I highly recommend Carlos to anyone needing a mechanic and would happily call on him again. Thank you Carlos for the A+++ service!.

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.
