About Strut Assemblys
The Jeep strut assembly is an essential part of your vehicle’s suspension system. It’s situated at the front of the vehicle and is attached to the front wheels of the vehicle. Its role is to help absorb shock and consists of a shock absorber with a piston and cylinder that contains either a liquid or gas. When driving over a bump in the road, the piston moves up and down against the gas or fluid and cushioning from the bump. A spring coil also forms part of the Jeep strut assembly and its aim is to keep your engine from experiencing vibrations during driving and provide you with a smooth ride.
Damage to the Jeep strut assembly is through general wear and tear and the Jeep strut assembly will begin to leak the gas or fluid inside. This can result in an unsteady ride and tyres will wear out more easily. Other symptoms of Jeep strut assembly wear are excessive body roll and hearing knocking noises when driving over bumps.
Should your vehicle need repairs to the Jeep strut assembly, it is worth knowing that struts should be replaced in pairs (front or rear).
- Nobody knows where the name 'Jeep' comes from or why it was used. One theory is that it's a play on the phrase General Purpose Vehicle (GP), while others maintain that Jeeps are named after a character in the Popeye cartoon, Eugene the Jeep.
- It's not something that you'll be able to find to buy, but there was a prototype of a Jeep made in 1945 that could fly. The vehicle was called the Hafner Rotabuggy, and it had blades like a helicopter.
- Although they were designed for the military, it didn't take long before Jeep released a version for civilians. The CJ-2A had several features that were lacking on the military versions, such as a tailgate, a side-mounted spare tire, and an external fuel cap.
- One of the most expensive Jeeps in the world is the 2005 Jeep Hurricane. It's certainly not a cheap option if you're in the market for a Jeep unless, of course, you've got a spare £2 million in the bank.
- Jeeps have been seen on the big screen a lot, especially in war films. However, it's not just war that is responsible for iconic Jeep designs in cinema. Jurassic Park used a '93 Jeep Wrangler Sahara for the vehicles used in the dino-park, and the most iconic scene showed the Jeep outrunning a T-Rex! There's even a car club called the Jurassic Park Motor Pool, where members have to own a Jeep that has been painted to look like it's come straight from the park.
