Couldn't be happier with Kenneth. He contacted me early to see about bumping up my appointment and worked around my schedule to look over my recent used car purchase. He quickly diagnosed the issue triggering the check engine light, explained what should be done, and even talked me through how to replace the necessary parts just in case i wanted to do it myself. Awesome.

Tyler was awesome to say the least. He was prompt and good about communicating with me throughout the entire process of working with him. He fixed a number of issues with my car and I have the quotes/invoices to prove that I saved over 50% by using YourMechanic over said autoshop. I will definitely look to book work with YourMechanic, and specifically Tyler, for any car care needs in the future!

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.
