Godwin did an amazing job when he worked on my car. First, he arrived a little early which I greatly appreciate. Godwin's punctuality combined with exceptional mechanic skills resulted in the job getting done significantly faster than I anticipated. Second, Godwin provided me with maintenance tips to help me as a car owner. Finally, Godwin explained all the issues he found underneath the hood of my car. He even chit chatted with me the whole time he replaced my gaskets. Godwin is a cool dude all around. Overall, Godwin exceeded my expectations even though he has a bunch of great reviews. Thanks again Godwin, I will definitely be a returning customer.

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.
