Front-End Wheel Alignments in Lake Havasu City

Front end wheel alignment means that the way the front wheels are positioned relative to each other and to the vehicle. The state of your car’s wheel alignment depends on several factors: when one part is adjusted, the others have to be adjusted also. A front-end wheel alignment is best with equipment such as an alignment rack, which is housed in our shop.

What is Nitro Fill?

NitroFill uses nitrogren in your tires rather than oxygen. Nitrogen in tires is becoming a very popular replacement for air, and for good reason. With proper inflation procedures and adequate purity nitrogen can provide amazing benefits. Converting to nitrogen in tires can improve your fuel economy by up to 10% and increase your tire life by 30% or more while dramatically increasing the safety of your vehicle.



Why Not Use Oxygen?

Oxygen leaks out of tires faster. Nitrogen maintains tire pressure longer than oxygen. The oxygen molecules in compressed air are smaller and leak out three to four times faster. NitroFill™ generators filter the air we breathe through technically advanced membrane fibers to separate it from oxygen and water vapor.

How will Nitro Fill help my car?

Increased Safety – tire failures can be reduced up to 50%, with tread life increased by 25-30%.
Improves Performance – steering, handling, and braking are improved, along with a reduced chance of tire failure.
Saves Time, Money and Tires – improves fuel economy, drastically slows pressure loss from permeation, and reduces tire oxidation.

NitroFill Offers Free Automobile Club Services With Purchase

When you buy NitroFill, you are able to join NitroFill’s Automobile Club for Free! This Club includes 24 Hour Emergency Towing Services, Tire Replacements, and more. Call for more details.

Suspension Service in Lake Havasu City

Your vehicle’s suspension is made up of a system of springs, shock absorbers, and linkages that connect your vehicle to its wheels. Suspension systems serve 2 interworking purposes: good handling and braking, and keeping the driver and passengers reasonably isolated from outside road noise and bumps. Tuning your suspension is important for good driving handling and comfort.

A vehicle’s suspension system coordinates friction between the tires and the surface of the road, allowing stable steering and good handling while driving. Shock absorbers and struts are important components of the complicated suspension system in your vehicle. Before replacing parts, we recommend that you check the mounting nuts and bolts to ensure that problems with your vehicle aren’t because of looseness.

Automotive Maintenance Tips

Helping Keep Your Vehicle and You Safe

Spark Plug Service: When this service is recommended you most certainly should do it. Spark Plugs are little devices inside the cylinder that take in high voltage and return a spark on the opposite end. This causes air and gas to mix and is what turns your car on! With time the metal between the device begines to burn off without regular inspection and when needed replacements your car may start to run poorly and misfire.

Coolant Service: Also known as antifreeze, is a fluid that absorbs heat from the engine then dissipates it through the radiator. Draining coolant is recommended and then refilling the system so that it does not break down over time in the hot enviornment.

Timing Belt Inspection: This is a very important aspect of a car. It is a rubber belt as known as the camshaft drive belt. Without this belt an engine cannot run as it opens and closes the valves. It is very important to inspect this and look for signs of wear like cracks or shredding and replace as needed.
