AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignment can easily fit this crew cab, long bed, dually in our garage.

In these photos you can see the before, after and in progress of AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignments car technicians replacing the front drive axle and CV (constant velocity) boots. The rubber boots can degrade over time causing cracking or tearing exposing the joint and allowing the grease inside the boot to leak.

Here is a new CV boot next to an old boot to see the difference.

AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignment Dose Fleet Work

Ayres-Muffler-alignment-fleet-Ray-Co

This 2013 Ford F-450 fleet vehicle was brought to us by Ray Co. Drywall. This fleet truck needs a few things including a front end alignment, new ball joints and shocks plus the rotors resurfaced. If you look carefully at the after photo below you can see the lines go in multiple directions. This non-direction finish helps the pads “seed” better.

AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignment Repairs Can Resurface Your Rotors

Here is a video showing part of the process of “truing” or resurfacing a customer’s rotors. An annoying shacking or vibration will happen if your rotors have worn improperly and are no longer even. Many things can cause uneven wear including a hard spot or dirt.

Here is what the rotors look like after being properly resurfaced. As you can see, there are no dark patches or signs of dirt-the entire rotor has a clean shiny look to it.

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 Has a Rack for You

At Ayres Muffler Brake and Alignment we have three different types of racks to best work on your car, truck, bus, motorhome, commercial vehicle and more.

wheel-car-repair-ayres-muffler-brake-alignment

The first and most common is held by the tires or wheel assembly. This is the one you can easily drive up on and then your car is lifted. (Sorry you cannot stay in the car while it is being lifted) This rack is best to work on your exhaust system, brakes and front end.

rack-car-repair-ayres-muffler-brake-alignment-arm

The second rack uses frame contact to lift your vehicle. Two arms swing left and right to allow for best placement on each vehicle so Ayres Muffler Brake and Alignment is able to pick up your car without damaging it. The frame contact lift is best used for tire replacement or service, tire rotations and suspension work.
