Our Front End auto services include:
A king pin is the main pivot in the steering mechanism of your truck. In most vehicle steering systems, the pin forms part of the mechanism for turning the front wheels. Failure of the king pin will mean that the steering system will not work properly...and improperly working steering systems can be dangerous. To avoid accidents arising from turning problems make sure your truck's king pin is regularly checked and serviced. To have the king pin and the entire steering system checked and serviced by experts, call 805-497-2818 or visit Shelley's Precision Auto Center today.
Power steering (also known as the steering assist system) helps you turn the truck by augmenting the steering effort of the steering wheel. Power steering works by utilizing a hydraulic pump mounted on the engine. When the wheel is turned, the fluid in the steering system (held under pressure) is released applying pressure to the steering system.
Power steering is considerably useful when the truck is moving slowly or stopped. It also helps you with the feel of the road. To ensure driving safety make sure your truck's power steering is regularly serviced. For all your power steering needs, visit or call Shelley's Precision Auto Center in Thousand Oaks, CA 91360 today.
Spring & U Bolts
The spring supports the weight of your truck allowing the suspension to move over bumps. The movement of the spring is controlled by the shocks. The shocks stop it from bouncing.
U-bolts are U-shaped bolts with screw threads on both ends. There are many uses for U-bolts - one common use is to attach pipes. For all your spring and U-bolt needs, call 805-497-2818 or visit Shelley's Precision Auto Center today.
What our clients are saying about us
We have established longterm and stable partnerships with various clients thanks to our excellence in solving their automotive needs!
Absolutely love Shelley's and I am a repeat and ongoing customer! I'm always looking for a place that I feel comfortable going to on my own without my fiance as I'm not mechanically savvy and this is it! Christy, who is at the front desk and keeps this place running is so warm and welcoming. She does her job well and is always moving whether it is answering phone calls or managing all the different keys and customers. She remembered me after my first visit! The mechanics here are trustworthy and do their job well. I've gotten two reasonably priced oil changes and also brought my car in for a tire repair and I'm very happy with all my interactions at Shelley's. I would suggest making an appointment or dropping off your car because this place IS BUSY. If you are doing a walk in expect to wait a couple of hours, but otherwise I will definitely be back for all my car related concerns!
Christy, who runs the front of the shop, is the best. I needed to get my car smog checked. The problem was I had a check engine light. Shelley's did a diagnosis and was able to clear the check engine, but the codes would still not pass. We were able to assess the problem that could have been $$$ in parts and labor for a catalytic converter, but there was an alternative to flush out the codes for an indefinite amount of miles. I checked once a week before work at Shelley's to see if it my car cleared. Every time, denied. Then my check engine light went on again! Hope was lost. I gave up going to Shelley's for months. Until today. When I got in my car and was heading to work the check engine light was off. I immediately went to Shelley's. The codes were clean! We ran the smog and passed. I am legit on the road again. Thanks for your persistence with me Shelley's! I'll be a lifetime customer.
