Tom was on time for the appointment and very friendly. He arrived with everything that he needed with the exception of a couple parts that were later discovered to be needed. Even then, instead of rescheduling the appointment, he was able to get the parts a couple hours later and returned to finish the job. I am very pleased with Toms work and expertise in Volkswagen models. He made sure that my expectations were satisfied and that I was happy with the overall work. Tom is a very honest guy and will work with you to make you happy. He has turned my previous views about YourMechanic around and I will be using Tom from now on to work on my car. Thank you again!!

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.
