Steering & Suspension Evaluation

Your suspension system helps you stay in control of your car when it's on the road. It also makes the ride feel safer and more comfortable by absorbing the bumps, vibrations and noise that occurs between your seat and the pavement. Shocks and struts are integral components and their condition plays a huge roll in the overall safety of your vehicle. While Certified Transmission and Total Car Care is the best destination for suspension, shocks and struts in Stillwater MN, we recommend consulting with your vehicle's owner’s manual for the manufacturer's instructions for how often the suspension, shocks and struts must be serviced and replaced.

Shock and Strut Replacement Service

The useful life of a typical shock or strut is roughly 50,000 miles. That means you vehicle's shocks and struts will have cycled over 85 million times. That's a lot of wear on the internal components and that means a lot of hidden wearing down of other suspension system components, not to mention your tires. Because it's not always possible to visibly diagnose worn shocks and struts, it helps to have a knowledgeable suspension, shocks and struts team in Stillwater to look after you.
