Jason

Jason went far and beyond what I could have expected! Do to an incorrectly assigned time for completion in the job I needed done, Jason did far more work then he knew was coming. I needed my PCV hose changed, and low and behold, my Mazda required the removal of the headers to get to the PCV hose. Without question, Jason handled his business and got it done. On top of that, he replaced my brake discs and pads, and on a request after he arrived, he went to the auto parts store and bought and replaced one of my headlights for me. Jason ended up working for 8 hours to get the job done. Then, after there was an issue with my power steering making noise after he worked on the car, he responded quickly and came out to my work to figure out and fix the issue. Jason did a great job, and I definitely recommend him to anyone needing work done. He will go above and beyond.

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.
