To keep your vehicle running at peak performance, we provide 4x4 services that include:
Wheel alignment is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The purpose of these adjustments is to reduce tire wear and to ensure that vehicle travel is straight and true (without "pulling" to one side). The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process but Seymour's Garage has the best technology and knowledge to meet and exceed all of your alignment needs.
A chassis is the car's internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to an unsafe and undrivable car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car's chassis checked for defects. At Seymour's Garage, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.
Your vehicle's driveline is the component of the power train of an automotive vehicle that is between the transmission and the differential and generally consists of the driveshaft and universal joint. A driveline is the part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less than the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced.
An exhaust system is usually piping used to guide reaction exhaust gases away from a controlled combustion inside an engine or stove. The entire system conveys burnt gases from the engine and includes one or more exhaust pipes. In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, but it is also better - for you, your car, and the environment. See Seymour's Garage to get your exhaust on track.
The cost to replace all fluids in your 4WD vehicle can be a lot if you wait to get them all done at the same time. To prevent this, keeping your vehicle under a routine auto service maintenance plan with necessary fluid changes will help your vehicle's system run at its top performance and keeps any leaks from occuring.
Shocks or shock absorbers are designed to limit the bounce and sway of your vehicle while it is on the road. They do not actually support the vehicle's weight. Here's how they work: 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 Seymour's 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. Our expert technicians will diagnose any problems and help you make an informed decision about repairs.
As tires get older, they lose traction and deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a better performing vehicle, you need to make sure the tires are in good condition.
