Keeping your wheels aligned can help improve gas mileage, prevent extensive wear and tear on your tire tread, and reduce the chance for serious car repair. If your car feels unstable or shaky at normal speeds, it may be time for a suspension and wheel alignment. We suggest alignments when purchasing new tires, along side brake services, after an accident, or when you hit a pothole or curb.
If your car pulls when driving, even on a level road, or also vibrates through the steering wheel or seat at speeds over 40 mph, your wheels are not properly aligned. We recommend alignments every 12,000 miles. Call us today to set up an appointment. We can align wishbone, rear multi-link, and independent suspension systems to improve your riding conditions.
Your car’s shocks and struts are an integral part of your vehicle’s steering and braking system, helping maintain vehicle control by keeping contact between the road and your tires. The Birmingham area is known for its hills and inclines; having a proper suspension system could mean the difference between having an accident and avoiding one. If your car isn’t riding as well as it used to, it may be time for a suspension check. Experts recommend replacing shocks every 50,000 miles. Symptoms of worn shocks include poor steering response, stiffness or noise when steering, or fluid leaking from the shock or strut body.
