Car Care Tips

Check Your Shocks and Struts at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center New Port Richey


 

Today we're talking to New Port Richey drivers about shocks and struts. They're so easy for FL folks to forget about because they last so long and wear out so slowly. But your shocks are really responsible for keeping your tires on the road – so they're very important.

Without shocks, your wheels would be bouncing over bumps and lifting on corners. The shocks push the tire down to the road to maximize traction. Good shocks equal good ride quality and safe handling for New Port Richey drivers.

There's a difference between shocks and springs. Springs support the weight of the vehicle, keeping it suspended up off the axles. The shocks moderate the rebound motion as wheels hit bumps. Now a strut combines a shock and a coil spring in one compact unit.

It's best to replace all four shocks at the same time. That way you'll have even, predictable handling at all four corners. Anything less could be dangerous.

Visit Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center New Port Richey to have your shocks and struts inspected by a professional.
