Struts are about 200 dollars and you can DIY pretty easy. Transmissions can be costly so be careful.

Replaced struts and still rides rough


Struts have as their main feature to provide a compact, relatively cheap mechanism of wheel alignment as opposed to serious spring dampening. It is difficult to know what any driver might call "rough" in a ride and many variables to consider: road surface, tire aspect ratio, inflation, even vehice make and model. The only thing that could be suggested without considerably more detail, including
"ride" before the strut replacement; reason for the replacement; comparable car the complaint is based on; tire brand as size; and the like, would be to recommend a tires with lower aspect ration (taller side walls for flexing) within the range compatiable the struts.

Why is it that my Kia sorento car jumps on rough road.


Bouncing on a rough road would be an indication the struts, shocks are worn out...If your suspension is so stiff that it bounces...the design must be for excellent street handling...not off road performance.

Was told i had a leak in my rear shock and yes it rides a bit rough is that the problem


Shocks/struts are key to keeping your ride in your vehicle as smooth as it can be with the bumps and dips in the road.

Is it plausible this is your problem? Yes.

Is this your problem? I don't know without looking at the vehicle itself.

But, if you notice your vehicle riding rough AND did not state this to the mechanic diagnosing your vehicle and they suggest replacement of the rear shocks, it doesn't seem someone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes in this situation.

My back wheel when it hit a pot hole or any other bump in the street it bounce or not enough bounce to it ...the struts are ok an suspension is ok I was told so whats goin on..can u help me


I not sure if I fully understand your question. Are you asking should your car be bouncing more when you hit a bump or pot hole?

Well this is how struts and shocks are suppose to work: Struts and shocks are suppose to assist in providing a smooth ride, when you hit a bump or pot hole the struts and shocks absorb the force so you won't feel the full impact when driving. A good set of struts and shocks will eliminate excessive bouncing when driving or when you come across bumps and other mishaps in the road. So inconclusion if your car is not doing a whole lot of bouncing when you are driving that is a good thing, because that means your struts and shocks are doing their job and that means there is nothing wrong with them.

the first thing i would check is the sway bar bushings they usualy go first. you have a bushing out somwhere. ive replace many struts because people have requested new struts and when we install them they come back and complain that the clunk is still there and all it needed was a bushing kit for $20
hope this helps
