Should I Get An Alignment ?

I hit a pothole very hard and my truck does not feel right. Should I get my alignment checked? Absolutely have your vehicle checked for any damage that may have occurred. Small changes to the alignment can cause major tire wear in a short period of time. Sometimes suspension and steering components bend or break due to the impact. Sometimes a dangerous situation has occured where as the ball joint stud has spread the tapered mounting hole in the steering knuckle. A situation like this is dangerous as the ball joint stud could snap off as the only thing keeping it from coming out of the knuckle is the lock nut. Having your vehicle inspected by our experienced technicians to determine what has happened to your vehicle at Framerite Auto Repair will keep you driving safely and securely

Car Maintenance Saves You Money In the Long Run

Car Maintenance Saves You Money In the Long Run

We had a Acura TL in to check out for a subframe needing to be welded. What we found was the left front lower control arm forward bushing had separated from the rubber allowing the control arm to rub against the subframe. Unfortunately the metal to metal contact has occured for so long the subframe area is now paper thin. The damage has been done, the subframe now requires replacement. If the bushing separation had been spotted years ago the costs would have been minimal but now it will take one or two thousand dollars to repair. Having your vehicle serviced by a certified technician may cost a little more in the short run but could save you a lot in the long run. https://studio.youtube.com/#/video/tC5lLXFWfP0

Car Care Annual Checklist

Car Care Annual Checklist

While April is National Car Care Month we are reminded of something that we can take for granted. We assume that our car is going to start AND take us from point A to point B when we want it to. In order for that to be the case, we need to take some maintenance and preventative actions, much like we do with our bodies. In general your oil levels need to be checked or changed if due and your hoses, brakes, battery and exhaust system should be inspected. Below is a chart that shows some general guidelines to follow in maintaining your vehicle. You should always check the factory recommended maintenance for your specific vehicle. As always, Framerite and our experienced mechanics are here to help

How Much To Fix My Frame?

How Much To Fix My Frame?

How much to fix my frame? We hear that often from a customer after they have tried to have an alignment performed at a tire store. The tire store can”t get the alignment angles to where they need to be and assume the problem is a bent frame. To give an accurate estimate of what it will take to get the vehicle back in alignment we need to diagnose the problem. First we take alignment measurements so they give us a idea of what is the concern and at what wheel(s). Then our technicians determine from the alignment measurements and futher examination of the suspension, frame and/or unibody what is bent, what can be straightened and what needs to be replaced. Occasionally we can perform an alignment with installing aftermarket products that allow for adjustment where the factory does not give us any. In either case we have been returning vehicles back into proper alignment for 64 years. Give u ... read more
