Shock & Strut Replacement at Larry H. Miller Ford Draper

When the shocks and struts of your Ford suspension need replacement or repair, visit Larry H. Miller Ford Draper. Shocks and struts are suspension parts that not only ensure proper alignment, but also keep your ride smooth. While these components come built to last, they will still wear down over time. So when your shocks or struts need replacement, schedule an appointment with our service center in Draper, UT.

The Difference Between Shocks and Struts

While shocks and struts might look structurally similar, you cannot swap out one for the other. The shocks, or "shock absorbers", minimize the impact that your Ford feels from everyday bumps in the road or adverse terrain. The struts serve a similar function, but also maintain alignment balance and support the weight of the vehicle on the axles.

When & Why to Replace Shocks and Struts

The shocks and struts of your Ford's suspension should undergo replacement about once every 50,000 miles. However, drivers who often take their Ford Explorer or F-150 on off-road terrain outside of Draper should expect to replace these parts sooner. That's because consistent adventuring across unknown terrain can increase wear and tear over time. If you tend to operate on smoother surfaces or do not drive as frequently, you could see suspension components last up to 100,000 miles.

In either case, you should stay aware of signs that shocks or struts need replacement:

  • Excessive bouncing, even on smoother pavement
  • Misbalanced alignment, vehicle listing swaying to one side
  • Uneven tire wear, caused by misbalanced alignment
  • Decrease in fuel economy
  • "Bottoming out" - vehicle chassis hitting bottom near ground below proper alignment
