Our experienced team will thoroughly inspect and repair any of your car’s underside components. Schedule an appointment with us, and we’ll get your vehicle back to peak performance.

Our Undercar Services

Ensure optimal performance for your car by prioritizing undercar services to address any potential issues. Here at Parma Car Care Specialists, we provide the following services: 

1. Alignment

Alignment, or wheel alignment, is the process of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are parallel to each other and that they ensure vehicle stability. Have our expert team take care of your wheel alignment, and we’ll get your vehicle’s suspension back into proper form and prevent uneven tire wear. 

2. Brakes

Brakes are crucial as faulty or damaged brakes have a direct impact on your safety. Your brakes stop your car by activating the hydraulic system and sending brake fluid to the brake lines and calipers, which squeezes the brake pads against the brake rotor to slow down the wheels. If you encounter brake issues, let us handle the necessary repairs to ensure your safety. 

3. Anti-Lock Brakes

Anti-lock brakes (ABS) are a safety feature in many modern cars. They prevent vehicles from losing control when performing sudden stops, as they are designed to prevent the wheels from locking up during the process. If you think there’s a problem with your ABS, let our team diagnose it to see what needs fixing. 

4. Chassis

The chassis is a car’s main structural framework. It supports essential components, such as the engine, transmission, and suspension. If there’s a problem with the chassis, then your car won’t be able to transfer power to the wheels properly. We’ll check on it to see if we need to do repairs or replacements. 

5. Driveline

A driveline, also known as the drivetrain, consists of the transmission, driveshaft, differential, and axles. It’s responsible for transferring power to the axles and wheels, allowing cars to move. If you need your car’s driveline components repaired or replaced, contact Parma Car Care Specialists. 

6. Tires

As time passes and you continue to drive, your car’s wheel will eventually wear out and experience deterioration. Call our team of trained and skilled technicians and gain access to reliable tire services, such as tire balancing, pressure monitoring, and wheel rotation. 

7. Exhaust

A car’s exhaust is responsible for expelling the waste gases produced by the engine during combustion. It also reduces harmful emissions by converting toxic gases into less harmful ones. At Parma Car Care Specialists, we have the expertise to fix exhaust issues, such as rusted mufflers, cracked pipes, or a leaking manifold gasket. 

8. Shock

Car shocks, or shock absorbers, are part of a vehicle’s suspension system. They absorb the vibrations caused by uneven roads, bumps, and potholes. This component also helps prevent the displacement or damage of other essential components. Our technicians have the required training and experience to swiftly repair shocks.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Undercar Services

It’s recommended to have your vehicle’s undercarriage inspected at least once a year or every 12,000 to 15,000 miles. However, more frequent inspections might be beneficial if you frequently drive on rough roads or encounter potholes. 

Look out for signs like uneven tire wear, excessive bouncing, a rough or uncomfortable ride, increased body roll while turning, or clunking noises when going over bumps. These could indicate suspension issues that need attention. 

The lifespan of undercarriage components varies based on driving conditions and maintenance. Ball joints and tie rods typically last around 70,000 to 150,000 miles. Regular inspections help detect wear and tear, extending their lifespan. 

The interval for changing undercarriage lubricants and fluids depends on your vehicle’s make and model. Generally, changing them every 30,000 to 60,000 miles or as specified in your owner’s manual is advised. 

Our technicians have experience working on classic and vintage vehicles’ undercarriages. We understand the unique needs of these vehicles and can provide the necessary repair and maintenance services.

Our diagnostic process involves visual inspection, pressure tests, and using specialized equipment to locate exhaust leaks. Once identified, we determine the appropriate repair, which may involve sealing leaks or replacing damaged components. 

Performance brake and suspension upgrades can enhance vehicle handling, responsiveness, and braking efficiency. They’re important for those seeking smooth and better driving dynamics. 

Winter preparation includes thorough cleaning to remove salt and road grime, applying rustproofing treatments, and checking components for wear. It’s essential to ensure that suspension and braking systems are optimal for safe winter driving
