A vehicle's suspension system is comprised of springs, shocks, and struts. Effective performance of the shocks and struts of your vehicle are essential to steering control and can reduce the time for tire wear. Your vehicle's shocks decrease or sometimes eliminate the oscillation of the springs while struts support the entire wheel assembly of your car and are designed to house the spring. The springs take almost all of the pressure of the car.

Suspension Replacement: The entire suspension / strut assembly is replaced, including new springs, shocks, and struts. Recomended for heavily damaged systems.
Shock Replacement: Only the shocks will be replaced. This could result from leaky valves, which allows the fluid to flow past the shock's piston.
Strut Replacement: Struts are complete suspension assemblies that lose their natural tension properties as they fail. It is important to check them if the vehicle rattles and shakes after hitting bumps in the road.
The suspension system, while not essential to the general operation of a motor vehicle, makes a big difference in the amount of satisfaction while driving. Shocks and struts help determine how much the suspension is allowed to move. It acts as a bridge between the road and the occupants of the vehicle.
