Check the front and rear brake systems
and report. Replace brake pads or shoes with a premium grade
of friction material. This material tends to last longer.
Resurface drums or rotors or replace if necessary. This allows the
new friction to break in properly and reduces any tendency of the
brakes to squeal. Recondition or replace calipers or wheel
cylinders to minimize the possibility of hydraulic leaks and extend
the life of the new disc pads or shoes.
Replace disc or drum brake hardware as required. Worn and fatigued
hardware increases the risk of brake squeal and premature friction
wear. Inspect the master cylinder for leaks; replace or repair if
necessary. Inspect steel brake lines and hoses for leaks, cracks or
indication of imminent failure; replace if necessary. Inspect and
adjust parking brake cables; lubricate or replace if necessary.
Incomplete release of parking brakes causes premature friction
wear. Repack or replace wheel bearings where required; replace
grease seals to prevent leaks from developing. Flush and refill the
brake system with new fluid. Break fluid absorbs moisture over
time, causing corrosion within the brake system. Brake fluid should
be periodically flushed and refilled to minimize the development of
corrosion. Exhaust Systems
Exhaust System - Visual inspection of
catalytic converter, muffler, exhaust pipes, manifold and
gaskets. No one knows the exhaust business like us.

Nitrogen fill in tires

What is Nitrogen?
Nitrogen is a dry, inert gas used to inflate airplane tires,
off-road truck tires, military vehicle tires, and race car tires
for improved performance, more tire mileage, better fuel economy,
and increased safety.
- More consistent tire pressure.
- Reduced wheel corrosion.
- Prevents inner-liner rubber deterioration due to
- Tires run cooler.
- Increases tread life.
- Increases fuel mileage.
- Helps prevent uneven wear.
- Oxygen in compressed air permeates through the wall of the
tire, thus reducing the tire's inflation pressure. During it's
journey through the tire wall, oxygen oxidizes the rubber compounds
in the tire, causing under-inflation and deterioration of the
rubber . Dry nitrogen will maintain proper inflation pressure and
will prevent auto-ignition, will not corrode rims, extends valve
core life, and will help the tire to run cooler.
