Shock & Strut Repair

Motor Works Excels
Motor Works excels at shock and strut replacement. We have been serving DeKalb and Northern Illinois since 1984, and have three ASE Master Certified Specialists on staff.

When Your Legs Get Tired You Stumble
Shocks and struts are your car’s legs. When they wear out, your car’s handling gets sloppy. SOMETIMES DANGEROUSLY SLOPPY! Avoidance maneuvers that require quick, accurate steering and body control are no longer possible.

I was driving an old Buick Regal the other day. The shocks were so bad, every time I hit the smallest bump the rear of the car jumped sideways about six inches. Driving over 50 MPH was too scary to contemplate. I was amazed the customer wasn’t concerned about the problem. But the situation had grown worse over time in such small increments, he somehow didn’t notice. Once we replaced the shocks he couldn’t believe the difference.

All Shocks And Struts Wear Out
The shocks and struts on all vehicles take a pounding, and wear out over time and miles. Around 75,000 miles the deterioration is enough that, like our customer above, the results of “new legs” for your car is dramatic.

Let Motor Works inspect your shocks and struts at no charge and give you the straight story on whether they are due for replacement.
