Shock and Strut Replacement

Shock & Strut Replacement at Larry H. Miller Southwest Hyundai Albuquerque

The suspension of any Hyundai has two interconnected parts that play a pivotal role in maintaining balance and positive ride quality: shocks and struts. While both serve a similar function in regulating the suspension, neither can be substituted for the other.

The shocks and struts of most suspensions can last for quite some time. With normal commuting in smooth driving conditions, they can last for well past 50,000 miles. But when the shocks and struts of your Hyundai suspension do come due for replacement, schedule a service appointment here at Larry H. Miller Southwest Hyundai Albuquerque.

What are Shocks?

The shocks, or "shock absorbers," work as their name suggests. They absorb the impact of bumps in the road, ensuring the cabin remains stable.

Shocks work using a rod filled with hydraulic fluid or nitrogen gas, depending on the year and model of your car. When your car hits a bump in the road, the pistons on the shock absorbers push the fluid in the piston rod upward and provide resistance. This ensures that the cabin remains stable.

What are Struts?

Struts are the components that people tend to most associate with suspensions. Struts carry the coil springs featured on most modern-day suspensions. As such, struts serve a similar purpose to shock absorbers in regulating impact felt by potholes.

Most Hyundai models have a MacPherson Strut suspension. This connects the shock absorbers, steering link, and spring insulators to the car frame, thus balancing the wheel system as a whole.

What are the Signs That Your Shocks and Struts Need to be Replaced?

Damaged or worn-down shocks and struts will typically present themselves through a severe drop in ride quality. This can include excessive bouncing, swaying, or listing to one side.
