Shocks, Struts & Suspensions
Shocks, Struts & Suspensions in Walnut Creek & Brentwood, California
The main purpose of shocks is to absorb the bounces and bumps as you travel. If they are not working properly, constant bouncing can affect your ability to control your vehicle. Worn shocks and struts can cause undue tire wear, reducing the life of the tire and costing money. Shock absorbers that are in good condition will improve your ability to handle your car or truck. If they are not in good shape, they may reduce control over your vehicle or prevent your tires from consistently gripping the road. At Walnut Creek Import Service and Sales, we offer strut replacement and repair services to customers throughout Walnut Creek.
How the Suspension System Works
The shocks and struts in your vehicle force hydraulic fluid through piston valves as they move up and down. The resistance provided during this process reduces the amount of bouncing and rattling you experience in your vehicle. The performance of air strut suspension systems can be affected by the various components of the system, including boots, mounts, cartridges and hardware. We inspect the assemblies to determine if maintenance, repair or replacement is most appropriate.
