Ok on this same car 2005 in the front end are there shocks or struts cause it drives really well but when I go over a bump it's makes like a sound thud an one more question how much for the front end


Not enough information to answer. Need manufacturer, year, model, and engine size in order to answer the question. That said, most late model cars use struts. Cost can vary by model and type of strut. Also, if strut mounts need replacement, they add to the cost. Labor varies based upon vehicle type. Front end alignment must accomplished after strut replacement on most vehicles. At a US shop, figure a minimum of $500.00 for parts and labor.

When should I replace my shocks and or struts
When a vehicle is brought into an auto repair shop for routine vehicle maintenance, the auto technician may suggest that the vehicle shocks or struts need to be replaced. Learn the function of a car or trucks shocks and struts. Find out why the shocks and struts need to be replaced and how someone can tell if they’re bad.

The Purpose or Function of a Cars Shocks and Struts

Shocks and struts serve the same purpose. They’re main function is to keep the vehicle from bouncing. A vehicle has front and rear springs to cushion the vehicle over rough road conditions. If there were no shocks or struts the vehicle would continue to bounce excessively. The shocks and struts prevent the car from bouncing by damping the springs.

What’s the Difference Between Shocks and Struts?

Shocks are usually used to dampen leaf springs, where as a strut is used to dampen coil springs. Shocks are usually a single cylinder in the open where as a strut is normally surrounded by the coil spring and are more massive and complicated.

That’s why struts normally cost a lot more to replace than a shock. On a car the front suspension usually has struts and the rear usually has shocks. Some trucks have shocks on the front and rear. Other than those distinctions, shocks and struts serve exactly the same purpose.

Why Should the Cars Shocks or Struts be replaced?

Keeping in mind that the purpose of shocks and struts is to keep the vehicle from bouncing, the following is some of the reasons why they should be replaced.

* An excessively bouncing car can be an uncomfortable driving experience.
* The vehicle can be harder to control leading to an unsafe condition.
* Excessive strain can be put on other vehicle components causing premature failure.
* Bad shocks or struts will cause the tires to bounce and create spotty or choppy wear on the vehicles tires.

How to Tell if a Cars Shocks or Struts are Bad

1. Shocks and struts can be oil or air filled. If they are leaking oil or air they need to be replaced. Consumer beware, some dishonest auto repair shops will squirt oil on the shocks, show the customer the leaky shocks and tell them they need to be replaced.
2. Another method is the bounce test. Put all your weight on the front or rear of the vehicle and push down on the vehicle. Let go of the vehicle and stand back to see of it bounces. If the vehicle comes back up without bouncing, the shocks are probably in good shape. If the vehicle bounces a few times, chances are the shocks or struts need to be replaced.

Shocks and struts are wear items, not maintenance items. There’s no set mileage or time limit when they should be replaced. If the tires seem to have a choppy wear pattern or the vehicle bounces excessively over bumps, the shocks need to be checked.

Look at the struts or shocks and see if they’re leaking. Perform the bounce test and see if the vehicle bounces. Replacing the vehicle shocks and struts when they’re bad will create a safer and more comfortable driving experience, not to mention saving money in the long run.

Does a 2001 buick lesabre have shocks ? if so how much does it cost to replace?


Ok first of all your car has shocks in the rear and they are not very hard to replace or terribly expensive. The front has what they call struts which in effect are shocks with a springs wrapped around them as an assembly. Replacing struts can be expensive and will probably need to be changed by a shop if you are not equipped to do it yourself. You will most likely need to get the wheels aligned as well. I recommend calling around to different shops for a price. My guess for new front struts installed plus the alignment is $300-$400.

The strut must be compressed for mounting. Labor is approximately 2 hours. Not sure what labor costs in your area or if your shop will allow you to bring strut or require you to buy from them.

My olsdmobile aroua needs shocks. about what is the cost on shocks installed? Jim Fields


Your car has struts. The strut cartridges are about $80.00/ea and require some special tools. You have to take the whole assembly out of the vehicle and then using a special set of tools, compress the spring that is attached to the strut. Once the front struts have been replaced an alignment is needed. depending on labor rates in your area, figure about 2 hrs. for the strut change and then what ever an alignment costs. I think about $400.00 is in the ballpark.

Front shock replacement 1995 Plymouth Voyger


Those are the symptoms of worn shocks and struts. You should have them replaced by a mechanic. From choosing the low end not so high quality shocks/struts as the replacements, to the high quality OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) shocks/struts it should cost you around $250-$400. Let me please note that some times the shocks do not need replacing but that is at your discretion. Thanks for asking!
And don't forget! It's at your discretion leave a rating!. I always try my best at explaining my answer to your problem.

Front shocks


hyd. struts. Each side will have to be removed individually, the large coil spring is removed, then an insert is installed. After both sides are done, the front end will have to be re-aligned. Over all, not cheap. So you want to be sure you need new struts. There are not shocks, but struts.
