Four-Wheel Alignment

Top | Close Window
An "alignment" or "wheel alignment" is a measurement of multiple suspension angles and an adjustment of a variety of suspension components. This makes an alignment an important tool that greatly influences the operation of your vehicle's tires. A 4-wheel alignment is recommended anytime suspension components or tires are replaced on your vehicle. Alignment settings and specifications will also depend on your vehicles drive train layout. Most vehicles are 2WD (two wheel drive - either the front or rear wheels propel the vehicle) however a growing number of cars are 4WD or AWD (four wheel drive or all wheel drive all 4 wheels are used to propel the vehicle).
  • Perform a four-wheel alignment of front and rear suspension
  • Perform a road test

Tire Rotation

Top | Close Window
Regular rotation of your vehicle's tires helps prevent uneven wear, improper handling, reduced fuel efficiency and shortened tire life.
  • Check and correct tire pressure
  • Inspect tire condition
  • Inspect brake pads for wear
  • Perform a road test

Tire Mounting & Balancing

Top | Close Window
When you purchase new tires for your vehicle, they must be installed on your wheels. This is a 2-part process, referred to as Tire Mounting & Balancing. Mounting the tire is simply to process of mating the tire and wheel together and ensures the tire bead is seated and sealed properly on the wheel. Balancing the wheel/tire combination involves spinning the tire at a high rate to determine if there any "heavy spots" on the tire. If left alone, these "heavy spots" can cause serious vibrations at high speeds. Therefore, when we balance the wheel/tire, we add weight to counter the "heavy spots" and keep the wheel spinning smoothly.

Race/Track Alignment & Indexing

Top | Close Window

Vehicles with heavily modified suspensions that see significant Track use may benefit from very aggressive alignment specifications. While these alignments may give better performance on the race track, they are not advised for street use as they can cause extreme tire wear.

When aligning these kinds of vehicles, we can also Index the suspension. Often these vehicles have adjustable camber/caster plates and arms that the vehicle owner can adjust. By Indexing the suspension, we essentially mark certain points on the adjustable components that correspond to certain alignment specifications. This allows these vehicles to run the aggressive settings while at the track and then adjust the suspension back to a street setup once they are done at the track.

Light Bulb Service

Top | Close Window

Short bulb life is a problem common among the taillights of German vehicles. Many times the issue comes down to the material of the replacement bulbs. From the factory, most German vehicles are equiped with Nickel based bulbs, while most replacement bulbs avilable in the US use a brass base. This difference in material can lead to excessive heat in the bulb and bulb socket and will shorten the life span of the brass bulb. Additionally, the brass based bulbs can cause damage to the bulb sockets themselves. Our Taillight Bulb Service replaces all of the bulbs in your taillights with the correct, nickel based bulbs as well as cleaning the actual sockets to prevent any issues.

Brake Fluid Flush

Top | Close Window
During the operation of a vehicle, the brake fluid's boiling point is continually reduced through the absorption of atmospheric moisture. This moisture content can lead to the formation of vapor under hard braking conditions, reducing the system's efficiency. Brake fluid should be replaced every two years.
