Check, Repair, & Replace Struts
Suspension struts evolved from shock absorbers. Struts offer a much smoother ride as well as greater support than their predecessor.
We install and replace struts on most cars and trucks. Call or stop by the shop nearest you to get your struts checked and replaced. We will work with you to find the best and most affordable option for you.
Check Your Struts
There are "tell tale" signs of bad shocks...
- Bounce Test: Go to each corner of your car and bounce as many times as you'd like. It should stop bouncing within 1 1/2 to 2 bounces. If it bounces more the car may need shocks.
- Leaks: Look around the area of the shock to look for a hydraulic fluid leak
- Tire Wear: If you have spots wearing in uneven patterns throughout your tire that is a sign the tire is bouncing excessively due to weak shocks.
Call the Ripley's location nearest you or come on in to get your shocks checked. Fixing them now is not only the safest plan but it might save you a few dollars in prevented tire wear.
