Strut Assembly Replacement Service

What is the Strut Assembly all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

  • Struts are replaced in pairs (front or rear).
  • You may need to take the car to a shop for wheel alignment after this service. A mobile mechanic does not have the machine to align the wheels.

How it's done:

  • Verify that the struts are bad.
  • Remove and replace the struts.
  • Inspect the suspension system for any worn or damaged parts.

Our recommendation:

You can easily find out if you need new struts by doing a bounce test. Go to the front corner of your car and push down on the front of the car. If your car bounces up and down a few times, it's time to have a mechanic throughly assess the health of the strut assembly as bouncing often indicates a need for replacement.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Strut Assembly?

  • Unstable, bumpy ride.
  • Excessive body roll.
  • Uneven, excessive tire wear.
  • Knocking or other noises when going over bumps.

How important is this service?

The front of your vehicle has a strut assembly to help absorb shock. With so much weight at the front of the car (due to the engine placement), your vehicle needs extra help absorbing the shock and vibrations from the road. The strut assembly is a shock absorber with a spring coil that keeps your engine and cabin from experiencing the full vibrations of the road. When the strut assembly is damaged, it no longer acts as a shock absorber. Without this shock absorber, the ride will become much less smooth and comfortable, and your engine will be subject to potentially damaging amounts of force.

Maxima 2000 - Strut Assembly - LA, CA
I have never meet a mechanic more honest, professional, knowledgeable and trustworthy than Lucas, in my whole life. Perhaps because I am a woman, mechanics in general don't think I have any knowledge about cars and try to over charge me or do repairs I do not need. They are wrong, because I shop around, I research the symptoms, I buy my own parts, and try not to be a victim as much as possible. When two mechanics told me that I need a new alternator, the symptoms did not match and I had my doubts. When Lucas gave me a diagnosis turned out that it was just a loose battery connection and a dirty rag that the last mechanic that worked on my car "forgot" behind my alternator and was choking it up. Wow! He figured it out because he was not trying to cheat me and because he is extremely observant and meticulous and has great knowledge about cars. If that is not enough, I was preparing to make some other repairs that has been diagnosed by other mechanics and turned out they were all wrong. He pinpointed the real problem and advice me on how to take care of it on my budget. I love this man. I would never allow anyone else to touch my car, even if I have to wait for an appointment. He is definitely worth the wait and I am happy to recommend him, especially to those ladies that are tired of being taken advantage off. He adds great value to the team working at "YourMechanic". Lucas is a keeper! Treat him right! :)
