Steering & Chassis

Steering and chassis go hand in hand. Many people think their car’s chassis is its body…the metal frame work they sit in. This is not correct. The chassis is the bottom frame of the car, plus the “running gear” that makes it move: the engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. What we sit in is the “body" it’s constructed on top of the chassis.

Without proper maintenance your transmission can cost you plenty. DC Dynamics can help prevent problems with routine maintenance, fluid flush and fill and repair. Plus, regular driveshaft inspections are important. We will inspect the universal joints, CV joints, axles differential and more every time your car is up on the lift. We’ll check for leaks in your power steering column, perform a power steering flush and perform any needed repairs. We’ll also check the belts for proper tension. We recommend having the fluid checked and belts inspected every three months or 3000 miles. Power steering belts should be replaced every two years or 24,000 miles.
