Understanding the Differences Between Shocks and Struts
People often discuss shocks and struts together because they have similar functions. However, it is useful for car owners to understand the differences between them. Knowing the differences may help you identify when you need to get them replaced or repaired. The difference between shocks and struts are:
- Shocks – Short for shock absorbers, shocks prevent your vehicle from bouncing on the road as you hit bumps or start and stop. Keeping your vehicle stable during turns and other maneuvers helps to improve handling. Additionally, excessive shaking and bouncing can be harmful to some of the less flexible components under your hood. Shocks usually wear out very gradually, causing owners to have difficulty noticing it. However, once you have your shocks replaced, you will notice that it drives like new.
- Struts – Struts, like shocks, help absorb the impact from rough roads, potholes, and speed bumps. Struts differ the most from shocks in their ability to help your vehicle maintain a consistent height and weight distribution. You may notice how a vehicle’s front dips when coming to a sudden stop. This is a sign of bad struts and can be more dangerous than it appears. Letting Hewlett House of Tires, Tire Pros replace your struts will allow your vehicle to remain at a consistent height and keep the weight evenly distributed over all four tires when maneuvering.
