Shop Volkswagen Rabbit Replacement Struts

For vehicle buyers who give urgency on dependability and technology, Volkswagen really delivers. When contemplating quality and long-lasting performance, vehicle buyers won't be disappointed with an automobile engineered by Volkswagen. Efficiency comes with some expense, as the Volkswagen Rabbit has to have high-quality replacement and aftermarket parts to operate at maximum mileage. If a problem crops up or a component ought to be fixed, don't economize with the wrong component. A Volkswagen Rabbit needs the correct car parts to serve at top efficiency. Economy cars like your efficient Volkswagen Rabbit were meant to be maintained in excellent condition so they can keep on providing impressive levels of fuel economy. The Volkswagen you chose was put together with the highest care and skill; it should get new replacement or OEM parts with a similar high level of value. Drivers who love optimized vehicles recognize that absolutely nothing is more crucial than putting in the highest quality new parts for your car. Maximum horsepower and high performance come from top-notch parts and accessories. Volkswagen Rabbit Struts are very tough but the interior shock absorbing element can wear out, necessitating replacing the complete component. MacPherson struts are the most usual kind installed in car suspension systems, and consolidate the shock absorber and a spring in a single component. Since Volkswagen Rabbit Struts give the suspension both shock absorption as well as sideways support, they have to be much more voluminous and stiffer than a conventional shock absorber. Our outstanding accessories are a solid investment in your favorite car or truck. When there are any concerns about our parts or accessories, our customer support team members can be reached by telephone or by e-mail. To get a high level of satisfaction from your car or truck, remember that great parts make for great performance - PartsGeek.com has the parts you need.

Research on Struts for Volkswagen Rabbit

The 1974 Volkswagen Golf arrived in the U.S. in 1975 as the Volkswagen Rabbit. Initially available as either a two- or four-door hatchback, and later on as a convertible and a pickup truck, the Rabbit combined a nimble, front-wheel-drive chassis with high-quality construction and space efficiency. This successor to the VW Beetle out-performed American economy cars in terms of performance, fuel-efficiency and cabin space. In 1985, the Rabbit nameplate was replaced by the Golf moniker, which was what the car had always been called in Europe.

The Golf name was replaced with the Rabbit badge on U.S. bound hatchbacks in mid-2006. This Rabbit was larger and heavier than before, and offered some upscale features not usually seen in its segment. The Rabbit's second death followed the 2009 model year, as Volkswagen reverted to the Golf name once again when it redesigned the car. Despite the different name, it was still the same well-engineered hatchback.

The Rabbit's strut assembly is a critical part of the suspension. The impact of bumps and dips in the road is absorbed by several suspension components to produce a smooth ride. Within the inner suspension assembly is the strut assembly, which is attached to the vehicle chassis and wheel assembly in the front and back of the vehicle. When the strut assembly begins to show signs of wear and tear or fails completely, it not only compromises vehicle comfort, but can lead to additional damage to other suspension components, creating potentially unsafe driving conditions.

What other components can be damaged by a failing strut assembly?

With worn out struts, the suspension will sag, causing the front tires to absorb more heat on the inner or outer portion of the tire. With the tires absorbing more wear, additional stress is put on the transmission and vehicle axle, resulting in premature damage. If the struts fail completely, the reduced drag produced by misaligned suspension can also put more stress on internal engine components.

What are some common signs of failing struts?

If you notice a knocking or clunking sound coming from an area near the front or rear tires, it's most likely due to worn out or broken struts. A rough or bumpy ride can also be an indicator of worn out or broken struts. It can also be a symptom of other parts of the strut assembly such as bushings, shocks or mounting hardware associated with the struts. Either way, with worn out or broken struts, one of the first noticeable symptoms is a much rougher ride

Another symptom of a bad strut assembly is a floating front end. This is typically an indication of faulty front end alignment. However the issue is typically caused by a strut assembly that has worn out. As noted earlier, extensive tire wear is common when the struts are worn out. Because your car isn't absorbing the shock like it used to, your tires are going to take more of a beating. Not only that, but the wear will be uneven since the load isn't being absorbed as it should.

What is the Volkswagen Rabbit struts replacement cost?

Parts stores only carry the strut cartridge. I needed the whwhole assembly because the one on the car was completely rusted through and had collapsed where it bolts to the knuckle. This is the only place I could readily source a new one. Great Sachs quality as usual. - Pleasantly Surprised.
