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.

My overall experience with Steven was excellent - 5 star. I liked the way Steven made immediate (text) contact with me upon my booking after I left a question for him. We stayed in contact as questions came up. I liked being able to track his arrival with the company's "tracking/arrival system", so I could be at home on-time. I found Steven very experienced, knowledgeable and comfortable to deal with. I had questions on his arrival which Steven had no trouble dealing with. Initially, I was thinking about 2 services, but Steven & his company parts manager did not feel that it was warranted for my car. Turns out after some research on my part, I learned that they had saved me from an unneeded expense. On top of that, the part purchased for my service (CV axle), was lower priced than quoted. The saving was passed on to me with a lower than expected bill. Finally, it was great having the work done at home, so no courtesy transport or pickups from friends or spouse. This was my first time trying "Your Mechanic" and I have no problem recommending the service.

Pardeep called me the morning of the appointment, asking if it was possible for him to come earlier - I, of course, said yes. He arrived promptly, checked the car, identified the problem efficiently and had it resolved within an hour (including time for him to go and get some replacement components). He also pointed out several other issues that I should address in the near future, but was not pushy. Throughout the work he was courteous and informative.

Pete exceeded my expectations. He was punctual and was very friendly. Mechanics like to talk down to people who don't know cars but Pete explained everything until you fully understood what was going on. I felt valued as a client and would recommend Pete to everyone.
