Light Vehicle FAQ

What other components should I ask the technician to look at when I have my shocks or struts serviced?

If you are having your shocks and struts serviced or replaced, all other parts of the shock or strut assembly should be checked. These may include the upper mount, bearing, strut bumper, strut boot, coil spring and spring isolator(s). In addition, connecting nuts and bolts should be checked, as they also undergo much wear and tear. If you are replacing a strut and are concerned about the durability of any of these older components, consider a Gabriel® ReadyMount®. A ReadyMount offers a state-of-the-art, completely pre-assembled strut assembly with all-new, high quality upper mount, coil spring and other component parts in one easy-to-install package. It saves time and labor costs resulting from multiple rebuilds and teardowns.
