Power steering (also known as the steering assist system) helps you turn the truck by augmenting the steering effort of the steering wheel. Power steering works by utilizing a hydraulic pump mounted on the engine. When the wheel is turned, the fluid in the steering system (held under pressure) is released applying pressure to the steering system.
Power steering is considerably useful when the truck is moving slowly or stopped. It also helps you with the feel of the road. To ensure driving safety make sure your truck's power steering is regularly serviced. For all your power steering needs, visit or call Premier Auto Service in Erie, PA 16501 today.
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit Premier Auto Service today.
Much like a shock absorber (shocks), your car's struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over a road's surface. By absorbing the shock of the road, struts allow passengers to ride in a car without constant and uncomfortable motion. Struts work a bit differently than shocks in that they provide structural support for your car's suspension. This means that struts support your car's weight, unlike shocks which only regulate the speed at which the weight is transferred. Struts usually last around 50,000 or 60,000 miles. This is simply because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorate over time. Call Premier Auto Service at 814-453-2277 if you have questions about the struts on your car. Our expert technicians will diagnose any problems and help you make an informed decision about repairs.
Suspension is a collective name given to the system of shocks, springs, and linkages that connect a truck to its wheels and allow relative motion between the two. The suspension system has the following main purposes: keeping the occupants of the truck comfortable, contributing to the truck's handling and braking, protecting the truck from wear and damage, maximizing the friction between the tires and the road surface; and increasing safety.
With a faulty suspension system, the truck's performance and handling will be greatly affected. Also, driving on rough roads will not be an easy task. If roads were perfectly flat, suspensions would not be necessary. To have your truck's suspension system checked, repaired or replaced by suspension experts, contact or visit Premier Auto Service in Erie, PA 16501 today.
