Shock & Strut Replacement at Larry H. Miller Colorado Jeep

When the shocks and struts of your new Jeep come due for service,  schedule an appointment at Larry H. Miller Colorado Jeep. The maintenance of your suspension is a crucial need. This is especially true for a Jeep you might use for adventure in more aggressive terrain. The shocks and struts make up two of your suspension's most crucial components, helping balance the car and minimize the impact of bumps in the road. Both parts must undergo replacement every so often, so we suggest scheduling an appointment with our service team if you think it might be time.

What Are Shocks and Struts & Why Are They Important?

You will find the shocks and struts underneath your car, near the wheels. Shocks, or "shock absorbers" use a system of pistons pushing against hydraulic fluid (or nitrogen gas, depending on the Jeep model) in a specific tube each time the suspension hits a bump in the road. Ultimately, shocks bear the impact of bumps, so you do not have to feel this impact all the time.

The struts perform a similar function, but also help maintain the balance of the alignment, suspension, and wheels themselves. Thus, one part cannot get swapped out for another interchangeably.

When Should You Repair Your Car's Shocks and Struts - and Why?

Ultimately, your car's shocks and struts should get replaced between 50,000 and 100,000 miles. While this may seem like a flexible window, you should stay aware of the suspension and ride quality as you near 50,000 miles. This is especially important if you tend to go off-roading, which can push the suspension to its limit.

Bad shocks and struts can result in increased vibrations or steering difficulties over time. They can also cause uneven tire wear and decreased fuel economy.
