Ever get that uneasy feeling?

Saturday, July 24, 2010 by Doug Moore
Worn out shocks and struts can not only give your vehicle that unstable feeling, but can also contribute to abnormal tire wear, pre-mature suspension wear and can affect your car's ability to handle in an emergency situation. Typical life expectancy is about 50,000 to 60,000 miles. Your shocks may look fine, but internally the components have worn and are not operating efficiently.

Shocks and struts are made for all types of vehicles and performance needs.

In the performance category, we have products from Bilstein, KONI and KYB. Each is engineered to provide excellent control and improve the responsiveness of your vehicle.

If comfort is more of a priority, Bilstein and KYB have replacement shocks engineered to bring back that new car feel.

For the off-road entusiast, or if you just need something heavy duty for towing or load carrying on your truck, the KYB Monomax will provide that higher level of control that you require.

As always, you can shop by vehicle to see products sorted by performance category.

Check Your Tires During National Tire Safety Week

Wednesday, June 9, 2010 by Doug Moore
Tires, the most important safety item and the most taken for granted part of your car. We have them, we ignore them, we wonder, why does the tire vibrate? Why do I have a flat? And it always happens when it's raining, or so it seems.

Typically all bad situations are the result of lack of simple maintenance. Here are the basics:
  1. Your tires' air pressure should be checked every couple of weeks. It's simple and you can find a variety of air pressure gauges at Tire Rack. The Intercomp 2.5" Deluxe Air Pressure Gauge is very simple to operate and read.
  2. Tires should be rotated every 6,000 miles and periodicly inspected for anything abnormal. This can make a big difference.
  3. Since most vehicles require oil changes at 3,000 mile intervals, having the tires rotated every other oil change can put you on a very simple schedule.
  4. Determining how much tread you have left on your tire can be checked by using the old tried and true method of sticking a penny with Lincoln's head upside down in the tread area. If you see all of his head, it's time to replace your tires. Or, for a more technical method, use the Dill Digital Tread Depth Gauge to get your  exact depth at a glance.
HAPPY MOTORING!!!
