N. J.. tinning and economy teiu con- teller mileage, Keep New Car Feelin With Front End Care ro got One of the pleasures of driv- ing a new car is being able to go over a rutted or bumpy road without any discomfort. As mileage adds up, how- ever, that new car ride dis- appears, particularly if you've neglected maintenance. According to TRW, proper car care in the front end sys- tem and suspension can con- tinue to give that new car feel- ing for years to come. Front end and suspension sys- tems should be checked every three months, says TRW's sen- ior product engineer W. Louis Cohn. And the front end should be lubricated as specified in your owner's manual. If you neglect these services, your car will give telltale signs that something is wrong, ac- cording to Cohn. Your car will tend to wander all over the road, even though you hold the steering wheel firmly. Another sign that the steering system is malfunction- ing. is the presence of irreg- ularly worn tires. Parts of the front end system that need particular attention include the steering linkage the idler arm, pitman arm, centre link and tie rod assem- blies. Have your mechanic check these next time your car is on the hoist. Also have him check the dust seals which keep dirt, water and foreign material out of the working parts of the steering linkage. If the seals are broken or damaged, it is an indication that the parts are wearing out, prematurely. If you notice that the front end of your car appears lower than the back end, it may be a sign that the front coil springs or torsion bars are sagging. The condition may also indicate worn upper or lower control arm bushings. In the case of torsion bar sag, it is often possible to adjust them. Sagging coil springs must be replaced, as must defective control arm bushings. Bad or worn shock absorbers can be detected by loose bush- WWSH8ELDS BROKEN?

The function of the shock is to hold the wheels on the road, and a bad or worn shock can- not do this. Driving a car with bad or worn-out shocks will give the driver the feeling of being in a boat. The vehicle continuously bounces up and down and is difficult to control. Always check the rear sus- pension. With the advent of four coil suspension, control arms and radius rods hold the rear axle to the frame. Loose bustlings in these arms often contribute to overstcering diffi- culty of holding the ear on tie road, and driver fatigue. After, and only after all sus- pension parts have been check- ed, and defective and worn-out parts have been replaced, should the vehicle be aligned. Periodic inspections will de- termine when parts are just beginning to wear, and by re- placing these parts the car own- er will avoid large repairs at any time. The car will give better service, it will handle like new, and will be fairly easy on the pocketbook.
