Struts and Shock Absorbers

Do you and other drivers hear noise when you start to brake? Do you feel your brakes grinding, vibrating or pulsating when you press down on the brake pedal? If any of these are true, and you want to regain the confidence of smooth braking, it’s time to visit RC Tire and Lube in Duchesne, Utah.


What's the Difference Between Shocks and Struts?

Shocks and struts are part of a vehicle's suspension that work to dampen the effect of the springs that absorb the shock from road surfaces.

When a shock absorber and strut assembly is worn, the vehicle is more prone to bounce when it encounters rough road surfaces. This can have an impact on vehicle handling.


Indications of Wear & Tear on Shocks and Struts

There are many other obvious signs that point to the necessity to replace shocks and struts, including:

  • The car bottoming out
  • Plunging forward on stops
  • The feel of rocking and rolling when driving around corners
  • Premature tire tread wear
  • Fluid leakage
  • An overall bumpier ride
