More Control. More Comfort.

Shocks provide a vehicle with a smooth, comfortable ride and the control needed for both everyday and extreme driving conditions in Edmonton and beyond. You need to maintain your shocks properly not only for comfort but also for safety.

How Do Shocks Work?

Shocks provide resistance by forcing hydraulic fluid (oil) through valves in the piston as it moves up and down when you drive over bumps. Since the oil cannot be compressed, only a certain amount of fluid can be forced through these valves, which creates resistance to vehicle movement.

Struts integrate numerous suspension parts into one compact assembly, including the coil spring, spring seats, shock absorber, strut bearing, and steering knuckle. The spring can support the weight of the vehicle while moving to adapt to road irregularities.

The internal shock absorber dampens movement of the spring as it compresses and rebounds during vehicle travel. The strut housing serves as a structural part of the suspension system and connects the upper strut bearing to the lower ball joint. This allows the entire assembly to pivot when the steering wheel is turned.
