Ken's Auto Parts & Truck Accessories Buying Struts
Fast performance cars and tough trucks in Arcata cause heavy wear and tear on their strut components. If you are experiencing excessive tire wear, body rolling, and steering stability issues its time to service your struts. The great ride and handling of your car or truck is 100% the result of a well maintained top quality strut. Call today at 707-822-3674 to "talk shop" with us about replacing your struts today.
Coil spring, seats, shock absorbers, strut bearings, strut boot, and steering knuckle are all combined into one assembly called a "strut". The shock absorber portion of the strut is the most commonly serviced part.
- The spring is able to support the weight of the vehicle, while it is moving so that it can adapt to the road irregularities such as potholes in Arcata.
- The internal shock absorber minimizes the impact of "bumps" in the road and aids the spring as it compresses.
- The strut housing serves as a structural part of the suspension system and it connects the upper strut bearing to the lower ball joint so that the entire assembly can then pivot when the steering wheel is turned.
From seats to bearing and boots, replacing any of these elements requires exact alignment with the camber and caster angles. Servicing struts can be a complex task.
