Your vehicle’s suspension system is a comprehensive network of shock-absorbing components designed to support road handling and ride quality. The system includes many parts, such as shocks and struts, springs, dampers, and more. While your suspension system is generally reliable, normal wear and tear, as well as driving over potholes and making sharp turns, can accelerate its deterioration. And if any part of your suspension system requires  service or repair, it can quickly become a matter of safety.

Shock and Strut Replacement in Kenner LA

The most common suspension repairs involve replacing shocks and struts. While the term shocks and struts are often used interchangeably, these two components have different functions.

What Are Shock Absorbers?

Shock absorbers, or “Shocks,” absorb bumps and jolts as you drive over uneven roads, potholes, and damaged roads. These hydraulic components minimize movement originating from irregular surfaces. Shocks help you achieve a smoother and more comfortable ride while ensuring you maintain control over your vehicle.

What Are Struts?

Struts are composed of a spring and shock absorber. Because of this, struts are engineered to be much stronger than shocks alone. Struts also help bolster the alignment of your vehicle while dampening jolts. It’s important to understand that not all vehicles will have struts.

When to Schedule Suspension Repair and Strut Replacement

Most manufacturers suggest having shocks and struts replaced every 50,000 miles or sooner. How often you have this suspension repair will greatly depend on your driving habits and your vehicle. Outside the standard 50,000-mile interval, you may need suspension repair or shocks and struts replacement if you answer yes to the following questions:

  • Does the rear end dip down when you accelerate?
  • Does your vehicle have an excessive bounce when you drive over rough terrain, hit a pothole, or run over a bump in the road?
  • Is the front end of your vehicle dipping down or taking a noticeable nose dive every time you brake?
  • Does your vehicle sway when you turn corners or go around curves, making it more difficult to steer?
  • Are your tires showing abnormal flat areas or wearing abnormally?

If your vehicle displays these signs, you most likely need suspension repair. Don’t hesitate to contact CAMS Automotive in Kenner, LA to schedule a suspension inspection.

Your suspension is an integral system for your vehicle. It not only ensures comfort, but your suspension system helps protect you and other drivers. If you continue to drive with worn-out or old shocks or damaged suspension components, it can compromise your ability to steer, maneuver, or quickly respond in emergencies. Simply put, you have too much riding on your suspension system to leave it to chance.

At the same time, driving around on a worn suspension system can negatively impact your wallet and cause damage to other parts. For example, an out-of-alignment vehicle can cause your tires to wear unevenly, which leads to premature tire replacement. The best solution is to have all suspension repairs performed promptly by the experts at CAMS Automotive.
