Shock Replacement And Repair In Edmonton
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.
When Do You Need a Shock Replacement?
Edmonton drivers should contact us for a possible shock replacement or repair if they notice any of the following problems:
- Car veering to the side in wind. A gust hitting the side of your car should not mean you need to correct your vehicle. Sliding in the wind suggests that your shocks are worn or leaking.
- Tires worn in patches. Your tires should feature uniform wear. Uneven wear means that your tires are unable to maintain contact with the road at all times. This can lead to a flat tire or hydroplaning.
- Shaking when driving. If you car cannot manage even small bumps or your steering wheel is prone to shaking, you need immediate shock replacement. This will prevent further damage to your car.
- Swerving, dipping, or delay when breaking. To decrease your risk of an accident in poor weather conditions, you may need a shock replacement.
