Proper Vehicle Wheel Alignment
Proper vehicle alignment is important to not only necessary control over your vehicle while driving, but it can actually save you money as well. If your vehicle is pulling to one side, or your tires squeal when turning, you have an alignment problem. Your vehicle can be out of alignment even if you are not experiencing these symptoms. Even subtle misalignment can cause undue wear and tear on your tires, forcing you to replace them earlier than necessary.
When to Check Your Steering Systems
For optimal performance, which includes proper tire wear and tear and fuel efficiency, it is recommended to have vehicle alignment, suspension, and steering inspections every 12,000 miles. Not only does it make your vehicle safer for you to drive, but it can save money on fuel costs and premature tire replacement.
Steering and Suspension Services
Derham’s Alignment shop offers complete steering and suspension system inspections and repair services. Worn suspension and/or steering systems can lead to premature wear on your tires as well as noise and vibration felt within the vehicle. It can also disturb your steering control which negatively impacts handling and performance.
Automobile Drivetrain Services
Your drivetrain serves multiple functions for your vehicle. It varies the amount of torque sent to your wheels and evenly transfers power to all drive wheels from the engine. A vehicle drivetrain encompasses not only the transmission but also the transfer case and the differential. If there is damage to any of these elements, you can find yourself on the side of the road. Also, your drivetrain needs preventative maintenance service to keep it working properly as well as to prolong the life of your transmission, transfer case, axles, and differential.
At Derham’s Alignment, we service and/or repair the following drivetrain elements.
- Clutches/Clutch Components
- Differentials (Front & Rear)
- Wheel Bearings
- Axle Bearings
