Shocks & Struts

You want your drive to be smooth and trouble-free. Routine suspension checks are part of good vehicle maintenance, and that includes your shocks. Your car’s suspension is critical to a safe, stable ride and should always be kept in perfect working order. At Point S, we do more than just tires. You can trust our certified mechanics to check and repair any suspension concerns you have, including your shocks.

Why Your Vehicle’s Shocks Do

All vehicles are equipped with shocks or struts – a pair in the front, and a pair in the rear. They’re more fully known as “shock absorbers”, a name that describes well the role that your shocks perform.

Inside shocks and struts, a gas or fluid charge is forced through valves in the cartridge. As the shock is compressed, it’s forced to once side. When the shock extends, the fluid passes through the other way. It’s the restriction from its valves that gives a shock its damping properties, absorbing vibrations as you drive for a smooth, consistent feel.

But over time, shocks become less effective. Their charge can leak out, mounting bushings may wear, or the shock might bend due to a strong impact. On average, it’s fair to expect shocks to last approximately 40,000 to 60,000 miles before replacement is due.
