Shock and Strut Replacement

Shock & Strut Replacement Services at Larry H. Miller Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Albuquerque

When it comes to ride quality and handling, few components are as important as shocks and struts. Properly maintaining these parts and replacing them on time can ensure that your vehicle will continue to provide satisfying handling well into its lifespan.

Shocks vs Struts

Shocks and struts serve some similar purposes, but there are some major differences to consider between the two.

Shocks: Shock absorbers (shocks) serve the role of dampening bounces as your vehicle moves down the road. They're not critical parts of the suspension structure, but shocks are crucially important to ride comfort and handling stability.

Struts: Struts also absorb shocks and prevent bouncing. However, these more complex components also play a structural role for a suspension system. They make for cheaper manufacturing but can be more expensive and difficult to replace than shocks.

Wear, Tear & When to Replace Your Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are engineered to last a long time. However, they don't last forever. Daily use leads to natural wear and tear that can diminish performance over time. Typically, you can expect shocks and struts to last around 50,000 miles. This can vary significantly, however, depending on your vehicle type, driving style, and local road conditions.

Professional Installation at a Certified MOPAR Service Center in Albuquerque

We recommend taking your vehicle to a qualified technician for shock or strut replacement. The service often requires removal of wheels as well as lifting the vehicle for easier access. Strut replacement can be particularly tricky, since it involves removing a coil spring as well.

The service team here at Larry H. Miller Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Albuquerque is ready to help you with strut and shock replacement. Our MOPAR technicians can take care of shock and strut replacement with ease. Schedule your appointment today!
