Newburgh Toyota Shocks and Struts

Enjoy Expert Shock and Strut Care at Newburgh Toyota

Whether your vehicle employs shocks or struts, they both provide the same basic function - to absorb shock from unevenness or bumps in the road. This helps your vehicle travel smoothly along and ensures that you avoid damage to your vehicle. Here at Newburgh Toyota, our service team wants to make sure that all of the parts of your vehicle function properly, which is why we encourage you to learn about shocks and struts and how they are important to the health of your vehicle.

What is the Difference Between Shocks and Struts?

While both parts serve a similar purpose, they are configured to your vehicle in different ways. Shocks are independent of your suspension and are not considered a structural part of the suspension. Struts are integrated into an assembly with one of the suspension coil springs and act as a structural part of the suspension.

Signs that Indicate You Need Replacement Struts or Shocks

There are a few indications that might signify that you need new shocks or struts. You should watch out for:

  • Inability to safely steer
  • Inability to brake in time or without using excessive force
  • A bumpy ride that is uncomfortable
  • Fluid leaks
  • Unusual tire tread wear

If you notice any of these issues, give our service team a call or schedule online, and we'll get you in for an appointment.

Is It Dangerous to Drive with Bad Struts and Shocks?

If you notice an issue with your shocks or struts, it can potentially lead to an inability to control your vehicle properly. It might also cause your ride to be bumpier, leading to instances where your tires can leave the road and potentially lead to accidents.

When Should My Shocks or Struts be Serviced?

It's typically recommended that your struts or shocks should be replaced anywhere between 50,000 to 100,000 miles. However, this is a general recommendation, and it can depend on a variety of factors like the roads you drive on and the type of driver you are.

You can check the condition of your shocks or struts from home, but if you're uncomfortable or unfamiliar with where to locate them, you can also make an appointment with our service team. We'll do the work for you and make it quick and easy! Struts can cost you anywhere between $450 and $900, which shocks are typically more affordable.
