KEEP YOUR RIDE SMOOTH AND YOUR HANDLING PRECISE BY TAKING GOOD CARE OF YOUR CAR'S STEERING AND SUSPENSION.

Your vehicle’s front-end and its alignment ensure that the wheels run equally and parallel to each other while you drive. This gives you good road handling, control, and proper tire wear.

Signs of front-end component and alignment problems:

    • Steering wheel or front-end vibration.
    • The vehicle pulling to one side.
    • Uneven tire wear.

If you experience any of these while you drive, it’s time to let one of our technicians take a look at your vehicle.

Before we replace any parts or re-align your vehicle’s wheels, we will explain the areas of concern and how much it will cost to do the job.

Front-end assemblies operate on a series of interacting parts: the rack and pinion, the tie rod assemblies, the ball joints, the sway bars, the sway bar link kits, and the control arm bushings.

Struts are generally larger than shocks. Shocks and struts keep the tire in contact with the road. Only air shocks support the weight of the vehicle, otherwise, springs or torsion bars support the weight of the vehicle.

Definitely not normal, you may have a problem with your brake rotors.

If your car is newer than twenty years old, it probably doesn’t have grease fittings. But we should definitely have a look to figure out what is going on.

Usually, this has to do with your tires. Rarely, this can be radial angulation, which means a bent frame, steering component or something else. We can have a look and let you know how to fix it.

If you turn too sharply and then take your key out before straightening your tires, this can sometimes happen. The key can be hard to turn if the ignition is mounted onto the steering column. If that’s not the problem, bring it in to see us and we can help you figure out what’s going on.
