Maintaining Control: The Professional Approach To Steering/Suspension System Service And Repair

We’ve all heard the phrase, “Where the rubber meets the road”, when used to describe something critical or important. But have you ever considered just how much truth there is in that statement?

The point where your customers’ vehicles’ “rubber meets the road” is called the tire’s contact patch, and it’s not much bigger than the size of your hand. Yet, those four small contact areas are all that stand between a vehicle out of control or one that remains in control. Every force the vehicle experiences – braking, acceleration, turning, road irregularities and obstacles – tries to break that contact. If that happens, bad things usually result. It is the role of the tires, suspension, and steering systems to always keep that contact patch on the ground.

Offered in partnership with Duralast, we invite you to join Motor Age’s Pete Meier and TST President G. Truglia on April 23, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. Eastern for a FREE and informative webinar on properly inspecting, servicing, and repairing these systems.

Whether you’re an old pro or new to the profession, you’ll only benefit from attending this event. REGISTER TODAY!

He’s earned ASE Master Automotive certification, has wrenched on just about everything that runs on gasoline, taught in both private and public vocational schools, trained technicians at regional and national events, and served as the technical editor for Motor Age magazine and later as the EBM Director of Digital Content. During his tenure at Motor Age, he led the publication into the Internet age and was the first to bring an industry trade publication to social media and created the Motor Age YouTube channel, now with over 109,000 subscribers. He was also the first in the industry, in partnership with TST, to host “live” training webinars in a shop atmosphere, making online training as close to a “hands-on” experience as possible.
