Common Shocks and Struts Repairs

1. Shock Absorber Replacement 

The shock absorber manages your vehicle’s up and down motion. On modern cars, you’ll usually find shocks on the rear axle. Replacing worn shocks helps keep your tires and suspension components in good shape.  

2. Shocks and Struts Replacement

Shocks and struts perform a similar function — absorbing the bumps and lumps on the road to keep your ride steady. However, struts also act as a structural, weight-bearing component (which is why you’ll often find them on your front axle, where your engine is located). Damaged shocks or struts should be replaced to ensure the tires, other suspension components, and steering stay in good condition. 

Chicago Shocks and Struts Replacement FAQs

1. How Do I Schedule an Appointment?

Once you select the service you need, AutoNation Mobile Service will help you find a date and time that works with your schedule. 

2. What Should I Expect From a Service Appointment?

Your first appointment with AutoNation Mobile Service is easy. We’ll let you know when we arrive, do a brief assessment of the problem, and set up a location to work on your car, truck, van, or SUV. Once we’ve completed the repair, we’ll let you know, go over any details from the service, collect payment, and be on our way. It’s that simple.

3. What Is a Shock Absorber?

Commonly referred to as a “shock,” a shock absorber is a suspension component responsible for controlling the up and down motion of your car’s wheels.

The shock absorber ensures your vehicle’s tires stay on the ground consistently by managing how the suspension and spring move. This allows your tires to touch the road surface, whether driving straight, over hills, or on a bumpy road. 

4. What’s the Difference Between a Shock and a Strut?

A shock absorber and a strut are different components of the car’s suspension system. 

The strut is built into your suspension system, while the shock absorber connects two parts of the suspension. So the strut contains the coil spring and the shock absorber within itself. 

Cars will either have a shock or a strut for each wheel — never both. Modern vehicles have struts on the front wheels and rear axle shocks on the back. So your vehicle’s weight is placed on top of the complete strut assembly and not the rear shocks when driving.

 5. How Often Should Shocks Be Replaced?

Previously, the “rule-of-thumb” was replacing your shock absorbers every 50,000 miles. 

However, as vehicle technology improves, your shock absorbers can last anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000 miles.
