Ayres Muffler Brake & Alignment Wants to Remind You to Always Have a Professional Check It

This is a GT500 Shelby Mustang with only 16,000 mile on it. The owner was keeping it more as a collector’s item and rarely drove it.

Unfortunately, he was involved in an accident. As you can see in the first picture there is minimal body damage. In the second picture you can clearly see the damage done to the rear axle. The rear end is broken and will have to be replaced.

Initially the customer came in for a front wheel alignment. Upon inspection it was discovered the king pin was showing excessive up and down play. Because the customer came in right away we only had to re-shim the king pins. In most cases the customer ignores the issue for so long, a complete replacement is required.

Always Have a Professional Double Check!

BENT-SUSPENSION-Ayres-muffler-brake-alignement

Here is an example of a customer that was in a minor car accident and the body showed very minimal damage, but the back tire looked a little crooked. He brought it in to the body shop “just in case”. They took one look underneath and brought it straight to Ayres Muffler Brake and Alignment.

20170223_094639

This 2015 Honda CRV looked OK but had a bent suspension underneath. Because all of the newer cars are built on a unibody instead of a frame, additional parts are needed. All the parts of the suspension that keep your tires in place are mounted on a piece called a cradle. This customer’s back cradle was bent causing the tire to sit at an angle. If left unchecked, this could have caused major damage to the tire, wheel, brake system and more!

With this harsh weather that just won’t stop, please remember to slow down and if you should happen to hit anything come get it checked. Ayres Muffler Brake and Alignment always offers free tire, brake and front end inspections. Better safe than sorry!

Slow Down and Be Aware of Your Surroundings

rear-trailing-arm-Ayres-Muffler-Brake-AlignmentThis 2014 Dodge Avenger showed minimal body damage after being rear ended, but upon closer inspection of the rear suspension the driver side back lower trailing arm was bent. As you can see in the first picture there is an obvious difference in the shape of the oval on the right and the oval on the left. They are supposed to be identical.

On the rear passenger side a bad hub was found and replaced. Click on the image below to see the video for a little more detail on what a hub does and why it is important. After the lower trailing arm and hub were replaced a front and rear alignment were done to ensure proper alignment for all four tires is maintained.

Ayres Muffler Brake and Alignment can Align Almost Anything!

Even race cars!

elva-race-car-alignment-AYRES-pit

In the photos you can see Ayres employees working on the front and rear alignment for an Elva race car. The devices attached to each of the tires measure the tip, casters, camber and toe ends of each wheel and then displays them on a monitor so they can go in and adjust each wheel for optimal efficiency.

AYRES-alignment-elva-race-carAligning tires on a race car is different than a street car. Street car owners are usually most concerned with consistent wear of their tires to extend their longevity. In contrast, these tires might make it through one race so they align them differently, regularly on specific specs from Ayres customers.

This customer for example will often give Ayres different alignment parameters for different tracks. They have different concerns than owners of a street car. Their goal is proper handling on the track. They want their cars fast and able to take the corners even faster.

If you have a race car or a street car that seems to pulling to the left or right, your tires show signs of uneven wear or when you are driving straight you steering wheel is crooked it is probably time to give Ayres Muffler Brake and Alignment a call to schedule an alignment.

Mention you saw this on Facebook to get a street car front and rear wheel alignment for only $79.95!
