Chevy Blazer City of Sparks Alignment

This Chevy Blazer was brought to AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignment by the City of Sparks. We are doing an alignment on this vehicle as one of the employees was complaining the vehicle was pulling to one side.

Poor alignment is important to watch out for. Besides possibly causing your fleet vehicle to shake or pull to one side, it can also cause uneven or rapid tire wear leading to costly tire replacement much sooner than budgeted.

  • Tires
  • Brakes

H2 Hummer alignment

Here is an H2 Hummer that was brought in for an alignment. The customer was concerned as their vehicle was not driving as well as it used to so initially they brought in their Hummer  for an alignment. Upon closer inspection it was discovered a new Pitman arm and Idler arm were needed.

To give you an idea, if the Pitman arm had completely failed, the customer would have lost any ability to steer the truck. Luckily for this owner, they recognized the first signs of trouble and brought their vehicle to AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignment.

Signs of pitman arm failing:

Poor steering

Vehicle wandering to the left of right

Shock and Strut Replacement Time!

Monroe and Rancho are offering a $50 rebate on shocks

To give your car a little extra “spring” in its step, until April 30th Monroe and Rancho are offering a $50 rebate on shocks (with purchase of 4) and $100 rebate on struts (with purchase of 4)*.

Automobile manufacturers recommend replacement every 50,000 mile. So how do you know if you need new shocks and struts and what do the even do?

  1. What do Shocks and Struts do for my car or truck?
    • Good shocks decrease breaking distance, sometimes by as much as 10 feet!
    • Good shocks and struts will provide better handling characteristics.
  2. What are some warning signs my shocks and struts might be failing?
    • Bouncing: after hitting that pothole or going a little fast over that speed bump and your truck continues to bounce could be an indication that shock and/or strut replacement is needed.
    • Nose Dive: if the front of your vehicle dives down while you are braking, accelerating or turning, this is a sign to bring in your truck and have it evaluated.
    • Leakage: as your shocks and struts wear there is a possibility of hydraulic fluid leaking. This lack of lubrication can cause additional damage if left unchecked.
    • Cupping: when your shocks and/or struts start to fail the tires can sometimes bounce up and down as you are driving. As the tire falls back down and hits the ground a piece of rubber is often scraped off. This causes an inconsistent tread-wear pattern and could mean additional cost down the line from early tire replacement. To avoid this give AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignment a call today to have your vehicle inspected.
