THE RIGHT APPROACH TO BRAKES


When it comes to brakes, most shops do the bare minimum and replace only worn-out brake pads. We go the extra mile and service the full system to address other components such as the calipers.

Peace of Mind

Don’t take chances with the quality of your brakes. Our technicians are highly trained, use the latest equipment, offer only premium grade parts, and get it right the first time.

Make Fewer Return Trips to the Shop

Brake systems have lots of moving parts. Replacing a single component often leads to faulty repairs and inconvenient return visits.

Reduce Wear and Tear

Replacing related parts along with the brake pads can reduce the risk of other problems, such as brake leaks when older, worn rubber seals begin to harden.

Wheel Products & Services

Alignment, the Right Way

Because we’ve been working on all things tire-related for decades, you’ll get expert service on your tires, wheels and alignment in one stop.

4-Wheel Alignment

A 4-wheel alignment for vehicles with adjustable rear suspension.

Standard Alignment

Also called a front-end alignment, only the front wheels are adjusted.

Thrust Alignment

Ideal for vehicles with a non-adjustable rear suspension.

THE BENEFITS ADD UP


Feel Safer on the Road

A vehicle with poor alignment may pull or drift on the road. Routine alignments can help make your drive a safer one.

Extended Tire Life

Want your money to go further? An alignment can help prevent premature tire wear, which may result in thousands of additional miles from your tires.

Visit the Pump Less Often

Poor alignment can cause tires to drag slightly and to roll with added friction. This leads to reduced fuel efficiency.

Avoid Expensive Repairs

Misaligned wheels can put undue stress on steering and suspension, and the damage can get worse the longer you wait.

Our Best Alignment Value Promise

Everything we do, we do to earn your trust. This includes giving you a best-in-the-business warranty.

  • FREE visual alignment check
  • All alignments come with a 30-day guarantee
  • Warranty covers labor costs
  • Honored at every Les Schwab location

Do I Really Need an Alignment?

Don’t assume that drift to the right means you need an alignment. Sometimes symptoms of bad alignment are about road conditions, suspension parts or other factors.

THE ADVANTAGES OF SHOCKS & STRUTS


Come to a Full Stop Faster

Worn shocks and struts reduce braking efficiency by more than 11% (Test source: RAC Test No. 996).

Save Wear and Tear on Other Parts

Worn shocks and struts cause tires, brake pads, and other parts to wear out faster, which means you’ll need to replace them more often.

Get a Better Grip on the Road

Shocks and struts keep your tires on the road, and you in control of your vehicle, improving your ability to safely handle turns, bumps and more.

Enjoy a Sportier Performance

For those times when you have to step on it, new shocks can give you improved handling at high speeds.
