Ball Joints

A ball joint is a flexible ball and socket that attaches the wheel hub to the suspension. It can move in every direction to help in steering and shock absorption. We recommend getting the ball joints lubricated or checked every time you have an oil change. If you’re hearing clicking, popping or snapping sounds when…

Battery

Your car battery is the heart of your vehicle’s electrical system. Composed of a series of lead plates submerged in an electrolyte solution, your 12-volt car battery permits a chemical reaction to take place that produces electricity for use throughout the vehicle. The battery supplies electricity to all of the vehicle’s systems and components, including…

Brake Calipers

Brake calipers are a vital part of your vehicle’s braking system. The calipers squeeze the brake pads against the surface of the brake rotor to slow or stop the vehicle. When you step on the brake, brake fluid from the master cylinder creates hydraulic pressure on one or more pistons in the brake caliper, forcing…

The average motorist drives 10 to 15,000 miles per year and uses the brakes about 75 thousand times. We recommend changing the brake fluid every two years or 24,000 miles.…

Brake Pads

Brake pads are a key component of your vehicle’s braking system. When the brakes are applied, their contact with the brake rotors are what allow you to stop. Over time, this interaction causes the brake pads to gradually wear down, reducing your braking ability. We recommend replacing your brake pads after they have worn to…
