Hyundai Elantra Replacement Shock Absorber Information


When considering a reliable car or truck that looks good, lots of room and is ecologically sound, buy a Hyundai. Preserve your car or truck's critical components by investing in the finest in quality parts. Maximum engine power and engine performance are dependent on high-quality parts and accessories. Shock absorbers can be defined by two fundamental forms: spring-based shock absorbers which contain leaf springs, and torsion dampers which utilize a torsion spring. Your car's Hyundai Elantra Shock Absorber is a coil mounted within a cylinder which augments a car or truck's suspension. Shock Absorbers work like large springs which look a lot like pistons, transferring liquid from one chamber to another which cushions jolts as you drive. The solid Shock Absorber provides you with increased stability as well as enhancing the maneuverability of the vehicle. Quality Shock Absorbers dissipate energy caused by bumps on the road to deliver a more stable drive. When you selected your Hyundai Elantra, you selected a car with great performance and notable style; you should protect your choice by choosing the most high quality parts and accessories.

Research on Shock Absorber for Hyundai Elantra

A cool invention known as a shock absorber keeps things smooth when you drive. Every bump, rock, and pot hole creates an up and down motion that can shake you to the bone. With shock absorbers, this motion is dampened, so your ride is as smooth as can be. Taking the brunt eventually takes its toll. Shock absorbers wear out and need to be replaced. Not doing so doesn't just make you uncomfortable when driving, but also unsafe.

Invention of the Shock Absorber

Early shock absorbers were derived from the leaf springs on locomotives. Mechanical dampening was a challenge in motor cars because of the variability in load on the spring. Hydraulic designs were worked on, and a telescopic dampener was featured at a major motor show in 1912. The lever arm shock absorber appeared in an automobile in 1927. Tunable, adjustable, and valve-controlled shock absorbers came later, including those in trucks and luxury cars enabling ride height adjustment. No matter what kind you have today, Hyundai Elantra shock replacement may be required at some point.

The Difference between Shocks and Struts

Some people use these terms interchangeably. A shock absorber is an independent part, consisting of a tube and piston, with oil, gas, or both inside that help to dampen forces. Struts include shock absorbers plus a coil spring for support, and mount the suspension to the chassis and wheel assembly. The Hyundai Elantra struts cost often includes that of a shock as well.

Do Car Shocks Leak?

This is one of the issues that may arise, and warrant replacement to fix Hyundai Elantra struts problems. Oil can leak down the side. If this is accompanied by uneven wear in the tires, then the shock absorber may be failing. Other noticeable signs include lots of vibrations and shaking as you drive, which almost always correspond with rattling noises. Front shocks can cause your car to tilt forward when braking, and bad rear shocks cause the rear end to dip during acceleration. Even your steering may suffer, especially around turns, but it can become unpredictable all the time. You even risk compromising brake performance and the possibility of the wheels lifting off the road.

How Much Does It Cost to Replace a Shock?

Replacing the 2013 Hyundai Elantra rear shocks on both sides costs you around $363 to $498. An alignment may add to this price range. The front shocks and 2011 Hyundai Elantra struts run from $391 to $525. The price range is in the same ball park for most model years, so for example, you'd pay around the same for 2003 Hyundai Elantra shocks and struts, or even 2005 Hyundai Elantra struts. If you're flirting with the idea for savings, and not the high costs of store-bought auto parts, check with online suppliers. They offer better deals on all kinds of automotive parts and accessories. PartsGeek.com has low overhead, so we can pass on the savings. You'll pay much less for shock absorbers and get your car repaired for a more practical price you can afford.

Great product and great service from PartsGeek. Best price by a good margin compared to anywhere else, fast delivery (free shipping on my order) and the parts were perfect for my application.

The KYB shocks are far superior in every way to the OEM shocks from Hyundai on our Elantra, and vastly improved the ride, noise level and handling.

This was my first order from PartsGeek, but not my last!
