Strut Assembly Replacement Service & Cost

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.

Alex was early and helpful, assisted with diagnostics and was able to troubleshoot the issue quickly. I thought it was the starter, he found out it was just the battery and was able to complete the repairs quickly and professionally. He was also able to point out some future issues I might have, most I knew about considering the age of my car.

Overall, Mark was on time & had a pleasant demeanor for the most part, but he brought his wife with him to both appointments. I thought that was a little unprofessional. Also, he didn't test the Battery/Alternator at first. He kept stateing that it was the Starter. I explained what was going on with my car & advised that I thought it was the Alternator. After we spoke about it several times of Mark stating that it was the Starter. Finally he tested the Battery and sure enough it wasn't holding charge. After installation of the Alternator my battery light came on before I could even make it out of my subdivision & I blatenly asked Mark did he run the vehicle to test the Alternator was sufficient. He replied that he Only ran a scan & no codes came up, but that wasn't true bc my battery light came on the first start up after he installed it. Not trying to be mean just felt that he was in a rush to get the job done without properly making sure the Alternator was a success. By testing the vehicle longer to ensure it was coding correctly & still not malfunctioning. Needless to say I had to have another mechanic come out today & come to find out the Alternator was testing as a bad Alternator & my brand new battery isn't holding charge anymore. Therefore, I have to have that one removed & a new one installed tomorrow.
