Brake components to service
Brakes/shocks/struts inspection and replacement
Most vehicle manufacturers recommend replacing the shocks and struts every 50,000 miles. However, their lifespan can vary depending on several factors, including road conditions and how frequently you drive your vehicle.
If you start to feel an excessive bounce in your ride, it’s time to give us a call to schedule a comprehensive inspection of your brakes, shocks, and struts to determine if replacement is warranted.
Computerized wheel alignment
When your vehicle’s wheels aren’t positioned correctly, it can affect your braking. Wheels should be parallel and forward-facing to help you maintain control. Misaligned wheels can cause wear and tear on your tires, making it necessary to replace them sooner.
Computerized wheel alignment ensures your vehicle’s wheels are in perfect position. You’ll get better gas mileage, your vehicle is easier to operate, and you’ll get longer life out of your tires.
CV boots and axles
CV boots and axles are critical components of your vehicle’s drivetrain. When dirt and grime accumulate in the boot, they can wear down your joints. Failure to address this problem sooner rather than later can result in damage to the entire axle, which is expensive to repair.
Bringing your vehicle to the trusted technicians at Rio Grande Auto is your best recourse for avoiding expensive axle repairs.
Suspension and front-end repair
Steering and suspension systems work together to keep vehicles under control on the roadways. A suspension problem can make your entire vehicle difficult to handle. If you notice your automobile bouncing, squeaking, or swaying – or you must work extra hard just to turn the steering wheel – it’s time to call us for a suspension and front-end diagnostic inspection.
Our technicians can evaluate your vehicle to determine if you need suspension and front-end repair services. Call us today to schedule an appointment.
