Shocks and Struts

Shocks and Struts University Place


For optimum driving operation, enhanced handling, greater stability and better control, we recommend replacing your shock and struts after 50,000 miles.

It is understandable that after cycling in excess of 75 million times during that time, your vehicle may need replacement of suspension components. And with shock and struts replacement you may improve your vehicle’s stopping distance by up to10 feet.

These are warning signs that may suggest a visit our repair shop for a free inspection:

  • Knocking noises
  • Uneven tire wear
  • Vehicle sways or rolls on turns
  • Front end nose-diving while applying brakes
  • Hydraulic fluid leaks out of shock or strut body
  • Bottoming-out over potholes and road bumps

Bring your vehicle into Richi’s Automotive for car shocks and struts replacement services  in University Place, WA. We can restore the suspension system of your vehicle to factory specifications.

Car Shock Replacement University Place


First and foremost, it is important to understand that worn car shocks and struts can seriously affect the road handling and safety of your vehicle.

As they begin to show signs of wear or potential failure, it is essential to consider the safety effects such as:

  • Loss of traction
  • Acceleration, stopping and cornering problems
  • Vehicle control reduction
  • Increased deterioration of related or attached components

The car shocks and struts in your University Place vehicle are designed to resist vehicle tire and body motion. As they become compromised, it becomes more difficult to maintain road traction during turns, stops or when driving over road bumps and potholes.

We have qualified technicians and mechanics who are experienced in diagnosing the condition of your car shocks and struts in University Place.
