Shocks and Struts

While it may be hard for car owners to ignore problems with their engine or brakes, issues with a vehicle’s suspension – shocks and struts – may be slightly more difficult to notice. It is important though, that suspension problems are fixed immediately, as shock and strut issues that are not addressed can lead to disastrous problems affecting your vehicle’s brakes, its steering system, and the tires and axles. Here at Family Service Center, we can perform regular vehicle maintenance to prevent problems with your struts and shock absorbers, or perform shock and strut services when they are required. With the help of our quality auto mechanics, car owners can immediately repair shock and strut problems and protect their vehicles from further damage.

Common Shock and Strut Problems

Some common problems that may signal the need for shock and strut service include the following:

  • Uneven wear on the tires on one side of your car compared to the other
  • Having to turn the steering wheel to one side in order to drive the car straight
  • The car seems to pull to one side on its own
  • Lack of cushion when you drive over dips or bumps in the road
