Shocks & Suspensions


The purpose of your cars shocks is to keep your tires on the road.  During normal driving you drive over potholes, speed bumps, etc. Shocks absorb the pounding and keep your wheels on the pavement without bumping you out of your seat.  Suspension systems have become more sophisticated in the last decade or so which has driven up the cost of shocks but also has made shocks evolve into struts.

One sign of bad shocks or struts is excessive bouncing. This can create uneven wear on your tires and an uncomfortable driving experience.



Does your car dip or rock when you go over bumps or drift around corners even at low speeds? If you answered yes, it may be time to replace your vehicle’s shocks or struts. Whether your car or truck has shock absorbers or a strut-based system typical in many front-wheel-drive cars, Chuck’s Muffler & Brake has the car suspension know-how to diagnose and repair any problem and get you back on the road with a smooth ride.

We can service or replace shocks, struts, tie-rods, ball-joints, rack & pinion, and the rest of your suspension components. Call Chuck’s Muffler & Brake to make sure your vehicle is performing the way it should be.
