STEERING & SUSPENSION
Worn steering, suspension and drive line components can cause noise, vibration, premature tyre wear and misalignment. That's why we perform a complete steering and suspension system inspection with every alignment. By replacing worn parts you regain steering control and handling which will return your vehicle to its original operating performance.
If you are having steering or suspension problems or if you hear unusual noises when driving over bumps or dips in the road, see us for a comprehensive steering and suspension inspection.
A Steering & Suspension Inspection includes;
- Road test to determine steering & suspension performance
- Inspection of steering and suspension system
- An estimate for labor and parts requiring repair or replacement
When to have this done
- When noticing steering problems
- Noises are heard when driving over bumps or clips in the road
- When your vehicles tyres show un-even wear
- If your vehicle is pulling to the side while driving
Power Steering Fluid Check & Flush
Power steering fluid not only helps transfer pressure from the steering wheel to the tyres, it also lubricates the steering system. But like all fluids in your vehicle, power steering fluid wears out over time and must be replaced in order to ensure proper vehicle control and the longevity of steering components.
This service removes harmful contaminants and helps prevent premature wear of steering components, and maintains oil seal condition to help eliminate leaks and ensure appropriate fluid viscosity for maximum power steering performance. Your power steering fluid should be checked with every engine oil change or logbook service.
- Steering system performance test
- Visual inspection of the power steering components
- Flushing the old fluid and refilling the system with new fluid
CV Joint and Boot Service
Each vehicle has so called Constant Velocity (CV) axle which consists of two Constant Velocity joints. The main task of this CV axle is to transfer the torque from the engine to the wheels of your vehicle. During its work the engine of your car produces a lot of energy and the special mechanism is needed to deliver all this torque to your car's wheels. And CV joints allow all the power that engine gives to be transferred very smoothly.
The most common problem that causes Constant Velocity joints failure is crack in the boot. When the boot is cracked it can no longer protect the mechanism from the moisture and dirt. Dirt gets into the unit which increases the wear of its parts. You can even hear a noise (a clicking noise) during its work. So when you hear that clicking sound in your car's CV joints that can only mean the crack in the boot.
