Shocks and Strut Suspension Services in North Olmsted, Ohio

Shock and strut services at Weber Automotive in North Olmsted, Ohio

Shocks and Struts

Shocks and struts are a critical component of the suspension system in your vehicle. 

Struts

Struts were introduced in the 70s and 80s to make the suspension system more efficient with fewer components on front-wheel drive vehicles.

Shocks 

Shocks are typically used on rear-wheel-drive vehicles and on the rear of front-wheel drive vehicles. 

Both shocks and struts are designed to help keep your vehicle on the road with as much contact as possible. Your tires cannot stop, accelerate, or turn the car if they are not in contact with the road.

Services and Maintenance for Shocks and Struts

At Weber Automotive, we always check your shocks and struts as part of our routine maintenance check whenever you come in for an oil change or something of that nature. We look at them for oil leakage or wear.

They don't have maintenance intervals so you can't really gauge when to get new shocks and struts just by distance, it is all dependent on how you drive. That is why it is important to have them looked at when you go into the auto repair shop.

If shocks and struts are neglected, it could lead to:

  • Poor handling 

  • Compromised safety 

  • Increases stopping distance

  • Uneven tire wear


If you feel your vehicle is a little too bouncy or it is hard to stop, accelerate, and turn, then you might need new shocks or struts. Contact us at Weber Automotive today with any questions or to schedule an appointment for your car today!
