Whitby's Trusted Auto Suspension Repair Specialists

The steering system, suspension system and front end alignment of your vehicle work in tandem to provide you with a smooth ride as you go about your day-to-day business. If any of those systems or their components should fail, it could cause a safety issue. As a part of our bumper-to-bumper service, M.R. Automotive offers a full range of suspension repair services in Whitby, including shock and strut replacement services designed specifically to restore your vehicle's suspension system to its original factory specifications. The main purpose of the suspension system is to keep the tires of your vehicle in constant contact with the road and render a smooth ride.


Shock absorbers and struts provide stability and support so that you are able to retain control of your vehicle even when driving over rough pavement or making turns. If your vehicle bounces excessively even when you go over small bumps and irregularities, it may be a sign that the suspension system needs repair.


Shock Absorbers vs. Struts 

While many older vehicles and vehicles equipped with rear-wheel drive rely on shock absorbers and accompanying components such as control arms, shafts, rods, bushings, joints, and knuckles to provide a smooth ride and keep your vehicle under control, most modern front-wheel drive vehicles employ a strut system instead. Shock absorbers and struts perform the same functions, but a strut suspension system combines the control arms and shock absorbers of a conventional car suspension into one unit, providing better performance with fewer components to maintain. 


At M.R. Automotive, we’re committed to providing dependable, honest work with every job we take on in order to make the repair process as simple and easy as possible. We believe in doing right by our customers, whether it’s a routine oil change or a complex suspension repair in Whitby. We look forward to getting you back on the road!


Whether your vehicle is equipped with shock absorbers or a strut-based suspension system, the team of certified technicians at M.R. Automotive have the knowledge and training to get you back on the road and running smoothly at an affordable price.
