Understand the when, why and how of shock and strut auto service and save time and trouble.

What are the Signs My Car Needs Shock and Strut Replacement?

Detecting issues with the shocks and struts in your vehicle is the first step to getting connected to the auto service you need for the safe ride you want.  Since issues with the shocks and struts can be common in Toyotas and other vehicles, it is important to be on the lookout for signs that you might be due for shock and strut replacement.

The first sign your vehicle will give you that there is a problem with the shocks or struts is a clunking noise.  Many of our customers come in for auto service as soon as they hear that telltale clunking noise.

The clunking sound can be described as a hard pop.  Often, it happens immediately after you hit a bump.  If you are experiencing this with your vehicle, it is time to head in to your Murrieta auto service shop for an inspection.

How to Discover Shock and Strut Problems: What Auto Service Pros Look for During Inspection

Shock and strut replacement is a common Toyota repair at our shop and others.  In fact, on some Toyota models, shocks and struts are known for only lasting a few years. The inspection process to confirm the problem is straightforward.  During the auto service inspection, in cases where shocks and struts need to be replaced, we usually find that they are leaking oil.  The dirt that sticks to the oil is easy to spot upon inspection, and it can cause significant problems for your engine.

Once we have confirmed that your shocks and struts need to be replaced, the turnaround is fast.  And we make it an easy experience for you.  Replacing parts like these is a great example of how a basic Toyota repair can prevent bigger, more costly problems in the future.
