Effectively Restoring Original Ride Feel

When the time comes to replace worn struts on your customers’ vehicle, there are many options on the market. Most professionals opt for complete strut assemblies.

When the time comes to replace worn struts on your customers’ vehicle, there are many options on the market. Most professionals opt for complete strut assemblies. These assemblies are made from 100% new components, and the strut, strut mount, coil spring, boot, bump stop and mounting hardware are all included.

The main reason service professionals are choosing complete strut assemblies is the advantage in installation time. Quicker service bay turnaround time is critical for the shop owner as well as the vehicle owner.

Another advantage of complete strut assemblies is that they allow the shop to assign the job to a less experienced technician, as there is no need to use a dangerous spring compressor.

Replacing the complete assembly allows worn components to be upgraded as well, such as the strut mount and coil spring. With that said, look for complete strut assemblies to restore the customer’s vehicle to like-new ride feel.
