Struts Repair and Replacement in Fremont
Fremont Auto Center provides professional-quality struts repair and replacement. “Shocks and Struts” repair is often mentioned in one sentence – because they provide similar function. But you vehicle has either shock absorbers or struts on a given axle– never both. Most of the time, it’s all shock absorbers or all struts. However, some vehicles are designed to have struts on the front axle, and shock absorbers on the rear axle. At Fremont Auto Center we provide a wide range of professional suspension repairs, including struts repair and replacement.
To simplify, a strut is a shock absorber mounted inside a coil spring. Unlike shock absorbers which only provide dampening ( smoother ride and better vehicle control function), struts perform two jobs – in addition to the dampening function, they also provide structural support for the suspension.
Worn struts can result in excessive sway form side-to-side and back to front – that’s why one of the symptoms of strut problems is your vehicle “dipping” forward when braking. Worn out struts reduce car’s ability to grip the road, and so have negative impact not just on handling, but also on braking performance.
Below is a list of symptoms to keep an eye on – if you notice them, bring your vehicle to a professional auto repair shop for an inspection:
A)Vibrations while driving
C)Tapping sound when driving over bumps
D)Vehicle nose dipping while braking
E)It takes longer to stop the car
F)Uneven tire wear
When you look over those symptoms, you will notice that many of them could be caused by other car components – that’s why we recommend professional inspection before deciding on struts repairs or replacement.
At Fremont Auto Center we offer full range of suspension services and repairs including struts replacement. All repairs performed at our shop are backed by 24 months / 24,000 miles warranty on parts and labor.
