How bad or worn struts are a safety hazard!

Bad struts can significantly increase your stopping distance, making them a potential safety hazard. Here's how:

Reduced Tire Contact: Worn struts lose their ability to maintain firm contact between the tires and the road. This bouncing allows the tires to lose grip during braking, especially on uneven surfaces or during hard stops.

Weight Transfer Issues: During braking, weight shifts forward, pressing down on the front tires. Faulty struts impair this weight transfer, reducing the pressure on the front tires and consequently their braking efficiency. This can lead to:

Leaking strut
