Professional Steering and Suspension Service for all Makes & Models
Edmonton Tirecraft Suspension Services Include:
It is important that all of the components of your vehicle’s steering and suspension are aligned to ensure your vehicle steers and handles the road properly. If the alignment on your ride is out of spec, you may feel your vehicle pull to one side of the road, your tires may wear prematurely, or your steering wheel may not be straight.
Shocks and Struts
Shocks and struts are critical components of your vehicles suspension system. They are what allows you to enjoy a smooth and safe ride. Worn down shocks and struts will not only give you a rougher ride but can also affect your braking and handling, cause accelerated tire wear, and decrease safe stopping distances and stability. If you feel like your suspension is bouncing excessively, it may be time for some new shocks or struts
Balls joints in your suspension allow for the parts involved to work seamlessly together in a smooth operation. Only a trained technician will be able to properly inspect ball joints.
Steering Linkages and Tie Rods
Tie rods and steering linkages allow you to steer your wheels. They are designed to pivot, and thus can wear out over time. They need to be inspected regularly by a trained technician. We inspect these components every time a vehicle is up on one of our hoists. Worn out tie rods and linkages are not safe, as maintaining control of your steering is critical.
Your bushings, made of synthetic rubber and metal components allows your suspensions parts to move freely and reduces small vibrations and noise.
If you suspect a suspension problem or it has been a long time since you’ve had your suspension inspected, contact Edmonton Tirecraft today and we would be glad to inspect your vehicle. We will go over all the components mentioned above to ensure your vehicle is in tip-top shape.
