STEERING, DRIVETRAIN & SHOCKS

Steering & Suspension

When you are on the road, the steering and suspension system of your vehicle is what helps you stay in control. The entire weight of your vehicle is carried by your shocks and steering system. Additionally, the steering system assists in providing a safer and smoother ride and keeps your tires on the road while driving.

You should inspect your steering and suspension system at least once a year or more, depending on your driving conditions. When you notice the first warning signs of a faulty steering and suspension system, you should pay a visit to our auto repair shop. Our expert technicians will diagnose the problem and fix it in no time. If you don't attend to these problems early, this may result in serious safety threats in the future.

Common warning signs that indicate you need to have your steering and suspension system inspected by our technicians include:

  • ires shake or wander
  • Problems while driving on uneven roadways or dips
  • Having difficulties when steering
  • Steering seems to be slipping
  • Vehicle is still bouncing after going over a bump
  • Pulling to the side

Our certified technicians can examine all your steering and suspension components in order to make sure that your steering and shocks are operating properly, and will also inspect:

  • Uneven wear or tires
  • Alignment issues
  • Power steering fluid
  • Steering wheel alignment
  • Out of balance tires
  • Impacts or Struts
  • Tightness of bolts and nuts
  • Used or loose power steering belts

Our expert technicians will also inspect your wheel balance and tire to see whether the problems are tire-related or not.

Drivetrain

The drivetrain, which is responsible for transferring power from a car’s engine to its wheels, is one of your vehicles most complex mechanisms.

Regular differential maintenance can help you prevent wear, tear, and damage, extending the life of your drivetrain. Drivetrain damage can be a serious problem for your vehicle. Problems with your drivetrain can get worse in a hurry, and if your drivetrain fails on the road, it could put you at serious risk. Do not turn your back on safety. If you're experiencing problems with any component of your drivetrain, don't hesitate to stop by or call us today! Our qualified and experienced technicians will fix your problem in no time and will save you time and money in the long run.

Shocks and Struts

At our auto repair shop, we provide the best professional shocks and struts inspections, diagnostics, and replacements. These components are at the core of your vehicle’s suspension system, and they are necessary to keep your drive comfortable, smooth, and safe.

Some people view shocks and struts as interchangeable, but they are different. Both serve similar purposes of dampening vibrations and preventing vehicle bounce. However, struts also provide structural support for the suspension, while shock absorbers do not. Many vehicles have one or the other, except for a few having both.

Throughout the life of your vehicle, parts wear out. Shocks and struts will need to be replaced at some point. When they have worn out, you may experience various warning signs. They include:

  • Vibrations and excess bounciness
  • Longer than usual to brake
  • Car nose dives
  • Leaking fluid around the area
  • Uneven tire wear

If you experience the signs above, we invite you to bring your vehicle into our shop for an inspection. Our professional technicians can pinpoint and explain exactly what issues arose.

At our auto repair shop, we offer a wide range of shocks and struts diagnostics, repairs, and replacements. Additionally, our customer service is unmatched. We only use the best quality parts and equipment with every service so that you can drive confidently when you return to the road.
