This is my first time using YourMechanic and the experience has been exceptional. Shaun was very professional, courteous, and helpful. He took care of everything and left very little for me to worry about. He examined my car's problems and checked with me first before proceeding with the repairs, and took a couple high quality pictures to show what the problematic parts look like. For someone like me who knows little about the inner workings of cars, these pictures have been very helpful and educational. The final amount I paid for Shaun's service was exactly the same in my quote, which was half of my dealer's quote! Would definitely come back for his service again.

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.
