Replace Struts & Shocks

Brakes Plus: Shocks & StrutsWeak shocks & struts may cause an uncomfortable ride and poor handling in addition to changes in vehicle ride height.  This may lead to increased wear on other suspension components – including tires, ball joints and springs. Braking distance and ability are also affected my worn shocks & struts.

Shocks & struts do wear out and should be checked every 12,000 miles, and replaced every 50,000 miles. Brakes Plus® offers one of the worlds most trusted brands of quality shocks and struts (Monroe) at an affordable price.

What is the Difference between Shocks and Struts?

The main difference is that the Strut is a structural part of the suspension system, and the Shock is not.  The Strut is a pivot point for the steering system and contains a coil spring. Because of this an alignment is always needed when replacing a strut. This is also the reason that service, repairs and replacements on Struts are usually more expensive than Shocks.

The main function of Shocks & Struts is to lessen the movement of the spring and stopping oscillation and bounce. Even though Shocks and Struts each provide essentially the same function, they are not interchangeable. A Shock can not be used to replace a Strut, and vice versa.
