Automotive Struts and Shocks

The most important function of your vehicle's struts and shocks is to help keep the tire in contact with the road.  Without these components the tire would lose contact with the road every time it contacted a bump. Struts and shocks also absorb impacts and smooth out from surface irregularities in the road providing a smooth stable ride. The rate of wear that struts and shocks have is so slow, that over time as their performance deteriorates you may not even notice the change.

Common symptoms of worn struts and shocks include:

Excessive harshness over bumps-  As the tire hits a bump, it is no longer able to absorb the shock of the impact and the impact is transmitted to the passenger compartment.


Excessive nose diving during stops- As the vehicle comes to a stop the struts and shocks are no longer able to control the compression of the suspension system and weight transfers to the front wheels.


Instability in Turns- Similar to Excessive nose diving, the struts and shocks are no longer able to slow the rate of compression of the suspension system.


Excessive Float Over Slight Rises in the Road Surface- The struts and shocks are no longer able to control compression OR rebound of the suspension system and the vehicle seems to "Float" over the road.

Many of these symptoms can cause a unsafe situation and seriously effect the performance of the suspension system. Come to Kool Kar Auto Repair in Azle Texas to have you struts and shocks inspected or replaced and restore proper control of the suspension system.

  6. These tools are indispensable for running an automotive repairing business. Acquiring any one of them is affordable to all. But keeping a set of such tools is really expensive and hence the need for automotive hand tool financing is essential.
