As part of your suspension system, your Geo Metro’s Strut is an important part of the vehicle. The strut is similar to a shock absorber in that it has dampening capabilities to help smooth out your ride. If a strut is damaged or even worn out, there can be dangerous effects to your Metro’s handling as you brake or even as you drive over bumps that are in the rode.
This poor handling could effect how your vehicle can suddenly react in the event of an event that requires quick reaction time, such as if a car cuts you off in traffic. Unless you are in an automobile accident that affects the struts, this is not always a noticeable problem, as your Metro’s struts deteriorate slowly over time.
There is a simple way you can test your struts. Stand at one corner of your Geo. Push down on the car at that corner. If it bounces up and down several times before it comes to a stop, it is time to replace that strut. You could then repeat the process at the other three corners. It is a very good idea to replace the struts in pairs across the axle. With out doing this, you could still have poor and unsafe handling of you car.
