Shock/Strut Replacement at Larry H. Miller Lexus Murray

Our service team welcomes drivers in need of replacement shocks and struts to visit us here at Larry H. Miller Lexus Murray. Whether you drive a Lexus sedan or SUV, it has a suspension, which includes these two crucial components that help to maintain a smooth ride and provide support for suspension itself. We invite you to order replacement shocks/struts at Larry H. Miller Lexus Murray or schedule an appointment through our service center. Let us answer some of your questions on these integral components.

What is the Difference Between Shocks and Struts?

The shocks, or shock absorbers, of your Lexus control the movement of the suspension and its coil springs. Essentially, the shock acts as an oil pump, bringing hydraulic fluid to a pressure tube into a pressure tube, while a piston rod works against the fluid. As your suspension bounces, the fluid gets forced through holes in the piston which slows down the piston itself and ultimately slows the suspension itself. In Layman's terms: the shocks absorb bumps in the road and keep your car from bouncing, rolling or swaying excessively.

The struts you will typically find above the coil-spring and parallel to the shock absorbers. The struts also help minimize the impact of bumps in the road and provide a smooth drive. However, the struts also provide support for the vehicle suspension overall and prevent the car from bottoming out and losing balance.

When Should the Shocks/Struts be Replaced?

The shocks and struts of your Lexus should undergo replacement between 50,000 and 100,000 miles. However, if you tend to drive your Lexus on more aggressive terrain regularly, you may wish to consider replacement closer to 50,000 miles. Your owner's manual also comes with a detailed service schedule which will give you an exact time frame for replacement in months or mileage, whichever occurs first.

What Are Some Signs These Parts Need Replacement?

Some strong signs of faulty shock/strut replacement present themselves through excessive bouncing, and swaying. A loss in the integrity of the struts could have more dangerous consequences, including bottoming out and damage to tires or wheels.
