Steering & Suspension

Steering_service_header_650x200.jpg


Today's power steering technology was introduced in 1920s. Power steering combines the steering linkage with the power and strength of hydraulic pressure. This technology pressurizes the car’s hydraulic system while the fluid moves via hoses, pump, and valve. As the wheel turns, the steering mechanics are moved forth and back by the piston or plunger. Your power steering system is the most overlooked system that actually needs regular servicing. The power steering pump can get damaged, reducing the pressure pumped to the power steering and making steering very difficult.

The steering wheel is made to turn easily by the presence of the power steering fluid. This fluid reduces corrosion and allows the pump to work efficiently. Different power wheel setups require different fluids to push the steering wheel forth and back. The pistons and the pump mashes the fluid around so regular attention is needed to give the system part a longer life to the system parts like the valves, piston, seals, power and hoses. The fluid should always be clear, and not appear cloudy.

Shock Absorbers Replacement Service

Your vehicle's shock absorbers are designed to keep your car or truck's tires gripping tightly to the road surface. They are not considered a load carrying component for your vehicle, but are designed to dampen spring oscillation as the suspension goes through bounce and rebound on uneven surfaces.



Struts Replacement Service

Spanial's will remove and replace your front struts. Then after replacing the struts the car will require an alignment. Struts are the parts that contain your vehicle's shock absorbers on many modern cars and affect the control and smoothness of ride of your car.

 



Suspension Inspection Service

During this service your vehicle's tires will be removed and inspected for unusual wear or damage. The tires will be balanced on the proper balancing equipment. The wheels will then be aligned using specialized wheel alignment equipment. Your tires will then be reinstalled in the proper location, and the wheels torqued to the proper value, maximizing your tires' mileage.
