Brandon has performed 2 service calls at our home. After the first visit, my husband, whose such a skeptic, was sold. Needless to say, we plan to continue to use this service and request Brandon.

David was on time, extremely professional and polite. The service (brake pads changed) I had scheduled was more than I needed and David saw to it that I was only charged for the work he performed; I was quoted to have all the pads changed but only need the back set done. Definitely happy with the service he provided and will certainly use this service again for my future car needs. It was refreshing to deal with a mechanic that wasn't out to take my money for services I really didn't need; this was the first time i didn't feel taken advantage of when it came to servicing my car.

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.
