Buick Shock Absorber and Strut Assembly Articles

When the time comes to replace your Buick shocks, you'll find that we carry an excellent selection, ranging from the standard, stock style replacement types to those that are made to meet more demanding driving situations. Whether you choose a standard replacement or decide to go with a set of higher performing Buick shocks, you'll find a wealth of options in our easy to use online catalog, which is chock full of aftermarket replacement parts and accessories for your Buick year and model, as well as a wide variety of performance upgrade options and customization kits. While a set of stock style Buick shocks will serve you well if your typical driving is comprised of the daily commute and the usual sorts of errands and running around town, you may want to consider a higher performing type if your life is a bit out of the ordinary. If your vehicle is an active partner in your off road adventures or if your commute takes you along hilly, curvy roads or through road construction sites that just never seem as though they'll be completed, a set of higher performing Buick shocks can really make a difference in the comfort of your ride and the handling of your vehicle, as well as take a bit of the stress off of the other suspension parts. We have a live help system available through our website if you'd like a bit more information about what a higher performance set of Buick shocks can do for your vehicle and whether your driving situation warrants such an upgrade. Whether you choose to try one of the higher performing options or to stick with your original style of Buick shocks, you'll find that we make those available to you at competitive, affordable prices. You can order your Buick shocks online or you can dial our toll-free telephone number.

How to Find Buick Shock Absorber and Strut Assembly

Your Buick shock absorber and strut assembly plays a really big role in handling, performance, and ride quality. However, once it becomes problematic, you'll starting getting car troubles caused by undue road vibrations and noise. Also expect other suspension parts to fail more rapidly and the steering system to become less responsive. Problems with shock absorber and strut assembly don't have to reach the critical point, though. You can have a replacement in a faster and more convenient way. You just have to make sure that you know what you are looking for. If you don't, the following guide will help you through it:

  1. Know your struts: Macpherson or coilover, gas-charged, and pneumatic are the three most common struts incorporated in the suspension system of modern vehicles. And these struts often come complete with bearings, bumpers, coil springs, shock absorbers, and etc. Some are designed for normal driving, others for performance applications such as racing and off-roading. So when you are looking for new Buick shock absorber and strut assembly, keep your mind focused on finding one that will complement your driving needs. You may want to find something that offers just a subtle improvement to achieve smoother steering and quieter operation.
  1. Consider shock absorbing capacity: Know the type of shocks or shock absorbers being used by your Buick. This way, you'll be able to identify the ones that would provide the same performance as the factory ones. But if you want your car to have better capability of absorbing and dampening unwanted jarring and jolting movements, consider an upgrade of any of the modern shock absorbers such as those using oil, gas, air, or a combination. In checking the shocks of a prospected Buick shock absorber and strut assembly that will be used for the upgrade, remember that it doesn't have to put up with performance types.
  1. Scrutinize the springs:Shock absorber and strut assemblies, depending on the application, must have the kind of coil springs that would help achieve a certain performance. For instance, there are those that are customized according to a corner-specific ride height and design. There are also those that can handle extreme pressure caused by heavy loads. Feel free to ask the dealer about the springs' performance design.
  1. Check Mount bearings and bearing plates: Suspension, vibration, and road noises, being the elements that we try to eliminate with the aid of the shock absorber and strut assembly, are where the mount bearings particularly focus on. Some are made to provide smoother steering and help in retaining front end alignment, while others come with bearing plates that also work on making a quiet operation.
  1. Inspect the boots and bumpers: Give enough time inspecting the boots of the shock absorber and strut assembly in order to make sure that the performance is not jeopardized by contaminants. Also check if there are any strut bumpers for that extra travel-limiting feature that prevents the strut from bottoming out.

Other things to consider:

Length and size must be the same as that of the old ones. You may measure them, take note of the numbers indicated in the old assembly, or simply bring it to the store to serve as reference. But if you are aiming for an upgrade, better consult a professional mechanic for options first.
