Shocks and Strut Replacement
Keep your ride smooth. Help optimize the performance and longevity of your suspension system with a visit to Jiffy Lube®.
WHAT WE DO:
After a thorough inspection and analysis of your vehicle’s suspension system, Jiffy Lube® provides recommendations for the suspension, including shocks and struts. Shocks and struts are integral components of your vehicle’s suspension system. If service is required, maintenance is performed using replacement shocks and struts that meet or exceed manufacturer specifications. If necessary, a complete alignment may be performed.
HOW IT WORKS:
A vehicle’s suspension system serves two purposes — managing the handling of your vehicle on the road and improving comfort by minimizing bumps and vibrations in the passenger cabin. Over time, key components such as ball joints, tie-rod ends and bushings can wear out even in normal use. Hitting or running over obstacles like potholes or curbs may damage some of the same components. Worn or broken shocks and struts (and their component parts) can affect the ride, handling and safety of your vehicle. Shocks and struts can become worn, affecting ride comfort and handling.
Most shock and strut manufacturers recommend service at or around 50,000 miles following a thorough inspection. In addition, if the vehicle exhibits ride quality or handling issues, the shocks and struts should be inspected or serviced as needed. Service recommendations may be based on the condition of key components.
Jiffy Lube® recommends following manufacturer recommendations, where applicable, for maintenance schedules and service intervals.
