What are Shocks and Struts?

Shocks, or shock absorbers, help to minimize the feel of bumps or potholes in the road. Struts are a more structural part of your suspension. Together, these parts help to keep your wheels on the road as much as possible, so that you can stay in control. This is vital not just to your comfort behind the wheel, but also to the safety of you and everyone else on the road.

How to Know When Your Shocks and Struts Need Service or Replacement

There are a variety of signs that your suspension is in need or repair or replacement parts. If you notice any of these signs, you might need to have your Toyota car's shocks or struts serviced:

  • Stiff driving experience
  • A "bouncier" ride than usual
  • Unreliable braking
  • Delayed steering response

There are also visible signs that a service appointment is needed for your car's shock and struts. If you notice any of these visual signs, then it is clear you should plan a trip to our Albuquerque, NM dealership.

  • Tires wearing unevenly
  • Fluid leaking
  • Broken bushings or mounts
