Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
Struts are a safety item on your car. They serve many purposes and the main purpose is keeping the tires in contact with the road. When struts loose their ability to dampen the up and down movement of the cars springs, the vehicle tends to become more unstable than when the struts are properly functioning.
Bad struts can lead to premature tire wear, longer braking distances, instability, loose alignment etc...
They are expensive but are needed for your car to perform safely.
