Alignments

Benefits of a proper alignment

  1. Reduced tire wear - Improper alignment is a major contributor to premature tire wear. Over time, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of miles to the life of a tire.
  2. Improved gas mileage - Gas mileage is affected by rolling resistance. When all wheels are parallel and properly inflated, rolling resistance is minimized and gas mileage is maximized.
  3. Enhanced handling - Inaccurate alignment angles can cause a vehicle to pull to one side producing the need to "fight the wheel" to keep the car moving straight. It can also affect proper "wheel return" after turns. Both of these situations can lead to driver fatigue. Correcting the alignment angles can remedy these issues.
  4. Safer driving - Before an alignment, an inspection of all suspension components is conducted. This allows for worn, damaged or missing parts to be detected before they become safety concerns.

Symptoms of a misaligned vehicle

Excess or uneven tire wear Vehicle drift or pull to one side Wandering or loose feeling Steering wheel is off center

State of the art computerized technology

All Wheel Center-line Thrust Angle Alignment

For vehicles without Independent Rear Suspension (IRS), we determine the thrust line (the direction in which the rear tires are pointing) and then align the front wheels until they are parallel with the rear thrust line, resulting in all four wheels being precisely aligned with each other. Caster and/or camber are adjusted if the vehicle allows. The steering wheel is then adjusted to be perfectly centered.

All Wheel Adjustable Alignment

For vehicles with Independent Rear Suspension (IRS), we align the front and rear wheels to the center line of the vehicle. Caster and/or camber adjustments are made if the vehicle allows. The steering wheel is then adjusted to be perfectly centered.

**In all cases, diagnostic specification certificate is provided.

Shocks & Struts

KYB World Class Shocks & Struts - AUTHORIZED RIDE CONTROL CENTER

Picture
By replacing your shocks and struts after 50,000 miles you can extend the life of your vehicle and help it to perform the way it was designed. Worn shocks can decrease the drivers ability to best control the vehicle. Ride control engineers suggest having a qualified technician inspect and road test your shocks and struts every 12,000 miles to ensure they are in good condition.



AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER - Monroe

Picture
Load and road conditions in addition to every day driving wear out ride control components over time. On average, typical shocks and struts "stroke" 1,750 cycles per mile. Additional wear can be caused if the vehicle is regularly used for carrying heavy loads, towing or in extreme weather conditions. A shock absorber that is degraded by 50% can add up to 10 feet to your stopping distance under some conditions. Increase handling, braking, comfort and therefore your safety by replacing your shocks and struts as recommended by your service provider - after all, don't you want to save a squirrel?

Tire Mounting & Balancing



Our high speed computerized dynamic wheel balancing process along with knowledge and experience assures an accurate outcome. Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors (TPS) are no problem. We service rims of all varieties from heavy duty commercial work trucks to highly esoteric premium and racing wheels (up to 20") with a variety of different types of wheel weights to best fit your needs.

Balanced tires can make a big difference in positive or negative driving experience. Newer, high performance or luxury vehicles may be more sensitive to imbalance problems, but every vehicle is suseptable. When tires are out of balance it can not only degrade ride quality & driver comfort, but even shorten the life of tires, bearings, shock absorbers or other suspension parts.

Vibration is the most common effect of imbalance. This can show up in a number of ways such as vibration in the steering wheel, seats or floorboard. It often becomes noticable at speeds around 40-45 miles and hour and becomes worse as your speed increases.

A "static" imbalance is a vertical movement caused by heavy or light spots in the tire. A "dynamic" imbalance is a lateral movement (wobble or shimmy) caused by unequal weight on both sides of the tire and wheel assembly's circumferential centerline. Either way, we can correct this with a "Dynamic Balance".


Brakes

Comprehensive Brake Inspection & Repairs

Picture
Brakes might very well be the most important aspect of your vehicle. Even so, most people don't often give much thought to their braking system, they just expect them to work effectively, quietly & consistently. While we agree that they should do just that, brakes are a wearable item and must be not only maintained/serviced regularly, but replaced periodically.

When do I need a brake inspection?

  • Brake pedal feel spongy or travels farther than usual
  • Vehicle pulls left or right upon braking
  • vehicle vibrates or shutters upon braking
  • squealing, squeaking or grinding sound (whether braking or not)
  • If your dash indicator is lit






What does an inspection consist of?

  • Measuring the thickness and condition of pads/shoes
  • Measuring the thickness and condition of rotors/drums
  • Testing fluid for moisture
  • Inspecting brake hoses, lines & connections for age or other damage
  • Inspecting all components for proper functionality
What can I expect from a brake job?

  • Replacement of pads/shoes with original equipment or quality aftermarket parts
  • Replacement of corresponding hardware
  • Machining or replacement (if below minimum requirements as per manufacturer) of rotors/drums
  • Replacement of brake fluids if indicated during inspection
  • Cleaning away all existing debris, corrosion & surface rust as well as lubricating all sliding/moving parts

On most vehicles a brake job could take anywhere from 1.5 to 2.5 hours per axle to complete depending on circumstances and is generally priced accordingly. Be sure to always ask what parts are being used on your vehicle and be cautious of prices that seem too low or times that seem too fast. If it seems too good to be true, it usually is. Remember, integrity and workmanship serves well in this instance. You are banking your liability and more importantly, your personal safety, that of your passengers, other drivers and pedestrians on it.
