Shock Absorber Repair and Replacement in Fremont

Shock Absorber Repair and Replacement in Fremont - Fremont Auto Center

Shock absorber’s primary function is to make your ride smoother and to improve car handling. At Fremont Auto Center we are specialists at shock absorber repair and replacement.

Shock absorbers dampen the bounce that your vehicle would otherwise experience when going over uneven surfaces. Over time their parts wear out and shock absorbers lose their ability to do the job and, in most cases, need to be replaced. Our auto repair shop provides full-service Fremont shock absorber repair and replacement.

Symptoms to watch out for:

A)Vehicle nose dipping while braking

B)Vibrations while driving

C)Tapping sound as the vehicle is driving over bumps – typically due to cracked bushings at the attachment points.

D)It takes longer to stop the car

E)Leaking fluid

F)Uneven tire wear

We recommend having suspension inspected by a professional mechanic before deciding to replace shock absorbers – some of the above symptom can have other causes. That’s why it is so important for a competent mechanic to inspect suspension – otherwise you may find yourself spending money on repairs yet the symptoms will persist. 

If you think about it, modern shock absorbers are remarkable contraptions. They are velocity sensitive - the faster the suspension moves, the more bounce resistance the shock absorber provides. In effect, they adapt to the road conditions, dampening and controlling brake dive, bounce, acceleration squat and sway. Thus they make for much smoother and more controlled ride. 

So if you notice any of the above symptoms, bring your vehicle to our Fremont auto repair shop, and our Master Technicians will inspect your vehicle and provide you with electronic copy of the inspection results, so you can make informed repair decisions. All repairs performed at Fremont Auto Center are backed by 2 year / 24,000 mile warranty.
