Shocks and struts are two components of your suspension system that keep your vehicle balanced and riding smoothly with all four wheels on the road. We recommend shock and strut inspections for maintaining excellent car handling characteristics. Blown shocks and struts can cause a vehicle to handle unsafely on public roads. Upon inspection, Firestone Complete Auto Care tire and auto service professionals can repair worn out shocks and struts, so your car will handle just like it came new from the auto manufacturer.
The Firestone Fixed Right Service Guarantee
A Firestone Complete Auto Care experience is a hassle-free experience. Your car will be serviced right the first time — guaranteed.

The suspension on your car is made up of many components, including a set of springs that absorb bumps and road impact, a set of struts that support your springs, and a set of shocks (short for shock absorbers) that limit the bounce your car experiences by absorbing residual movement in suspension springs.
Without properly maintained struts and shocks an unexpected pothole, or even a gravel road, can actually cause the wheels of a vehicle to bounce off of the ground, which can easily lead to loss of control and collision.
Since well-maintained shocks and struts critically contribute to the overall safety and stability of your vehicle's steering and suspension, we highly recommend having shocks and struts serviced regularly and well before there is an issue. That said, if you observe any of the following symptoms while you are in your vehicle or looking under the hood, it may mean it has time to bring your vehicle to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care center for service right away:
The interval for shock and strut maintenance will vary depending on vehicle make, model, and driving conditions, so we recommend driver's always reference their vehicle owner's manual for manufacturer-specific service recommendations. Lost your manual? Alternately you can always contact a Firestone Complete Auto Care tire and auto service professional for maintenance recommendations that are unique to your vehicle's specifications.
