Why you drive your Sonic.

Your Chevrolet dealership isn't the only place to locate the best parts to repair your Sonic. When your Chevrolet Sonic was born, it was destined for a person with discerning taste who values value in their automobile. Car aficionados know that a trusted name is built into each Chevrolet, and know that only the highest quality repair Sonic parts will suffice when repairs are needed. Obviously, you didn't buy your Sonic unless you wanted to buy performance and American style both rolled up into one vehicle.

What Strut does for your vehicle.

The first production cars from over a hundred years ago must have been very unpleasant to drive. The MacPherson strut suspension was first used on front wheels, and made it so they could achieve the same amount of rotation using fewer parts. Still, your Chevrolet Sonic struts react and rebound the same way shock absorbers do. However, your specific model uses a strut to provide the spindle with degrees of movement in the front, which eliminates the need for the front control arm to locate the wheel and provide a pivot for steering. If your Chevrolet Sonic has an independent rear suspension, you are going to have strut assemblies mounted to each rear wheel carrier rather than a shock and leaf spring on the axle shaft.

You've tried the rest, now try the best.

Don't let a broken Strut bring about the demise of your car, truck, or SUV, and don't gamble with its condition by installing anything but the highest quality repair parts.

What is the Strut Assembly all about?

The strut assembly, an essential part of your car's suspension system, is attached to the front wheels and is used to absorb road shock, providing a smooth ride. Most cars made after have shock absorbers in the rear and strut assemblies in the front suspension. Older cars may have shock absorbers at all four wheels. Faulty or damaged struts affect the ride comfort as well as the braking effectiveness.

The strut assembly, located in the front or rear of the car, is basically a shock absorber with a spring coil for additional support. The front wheels have the extra weight of the engine and need extra support to absorb shock from the road. The shock absorber has a piston and a cylinder that contains a gas or liquid substance. The spring is attached to the piston. When you drive over a bump, the piston inside the cylinder moves up and down against the gas/fluid and the spring, absorbing the shock from the bump.

The strut assembly takes a beating over time, especially on bumpy roads. It will eventually start leaking the gas/liquid, leaving you with an unstable or rugged ride. With worn out struts, it is possible that the tires could lose contact with the road and/or the tires will wear out prematurely.

Keep in mind:

  • Struts are replaced in pairs (front or rear).
  • You may need to take the car to a shop for wheel alignment after this service. A mobile mechanic does not have the machine to align the wheels.

How it's done:

  • Verify that the struts are bad.
  • Remove and replace the struts.
  • Inspect the suspension system for any worn or damaged parts.

Our recommendation:

You can easily find out if you need new struts by doing a bounce test. Go to the front corner of your car and push down on the front of the car. If your car bounces up and down a few times, it's time to have a mechanic throughly assess the health of the strut assembly as bouncing often indicates a need for replacement.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Strut Assembly?

  • Unstable, bumpy ride.
  • Excessive body roll.
  • Uneven, excessive tire wear.
  • Knocking or other noises when going over bumps.

How important is this service?

The front of your vehicle has a strut assembly to help absorb shock. With so much weight at the front of the car (due to the engine placement), your vehicle needs extra help absorbing the shock and vibrations from the road. The strut assembly is a shock absorber with a spring coil that keeps your engine and cabin from experiencing the full vibrations of the road. When the strut assembly is damaged, it no longer acts as a shock absorber. Without this shock absorber, the ride will become much less smooth and comfortable, and your engine will be subject to potentially damaging amounts of force.

I do all my maintenance on my Sonic, and when it comes time to replace the struts how hard is that to do? Or should I take it somewhere to have it done?
If you dont have jack stands and arent very mechanical, take it somewhere. Ive had mine out 4 times. I got quicker and quicker at it. I can have both out in about 15 minutes.

i have jackstands I should be able to tackle this,do you need any special tools for removing struts? I have replaced shocks before.
Not really special. Just a few specific ones. I know a 24mm socket, a 19mm and 17mm deep sockets. A few wrenches. Theres a thread on here titled "Installed new springs today" It has a list of all the tools you will need. And a step by step on how to do it.
It's not a difficult process, but the order of operations is important.

Watch a YouTube on it if you've never done it before.
Yea man, its not hard.
Since you havent done it before, check out this video, its fairly similar for all cars.
