Axle Alignment

Trailer axles are key to happy, healthy tires that last for many miles!

Axle alignment is key to keeping tires in the best shape possible and long-lasting. If you’re experiencing excessive vibration and tire wear - it could be due to a badly aligned axle. Even if the alignment is just off by a fraction, your trailer axle is not only compromising your safety on the road, but everyone else’s as well. With a properly aligned axle, you’ll avoid unnatural and premature tire wear that can result in a blowout, suspension damage and failure, wandering, jerking and tension that not only compromises your ride but also transfers to whatever you are towing. At Torklift Central we provide only the best solutions which include laser-guided and custom alignment. We make sure your axle is properly aligned to get you and your trailer on the road!


Ball coupler repair and replacement

Having your ball coupler in good, working condition is the key to safe and proper towing. When a coupler is worn out or out of alignment from wear and tear, it causes trouble when towing any load. The basic duty of a trailer hitch coupler is to secure the trailer to the ballmount, which is located on the hitch receiver. All couplers have a mechanism that locks the tongue to the ball mount. If your trailer coupler fails, you run the risk of watching your trailer pass you down the road! We offer all types of couplers including welded on, bolt-on or surge couplers. 

Ten Point Safety Inspection

  • Check Breakaway Systems- We inspect and test your breakaway system on your brakes. Proper breakaway activation is essential when towing.  In case of disconnect or accident, proper use of the breakaway system is crucial to stop the trailer and prevent the trailer from passing you down the road in the event of disconnect.
  • Bearing Tension- Loose bearing tension causes your bearings to fail quickly. The tension on the bearings needs to be properly set to achieve long-term life out of your bearings and hub system.
  • Tires and Air Pressure- Over or under inflated tires cause uneven tire wear, poor braking, bad fuel economy and dangerous handling.
  • Suspension Inspection- Suspension on a trailer is a moving assembly that is susceptible to wear and tear. Vibrations from the road cause things to become loose. Your suspension, (springs, link plates, u-bolts, shackle bolts, axle straightness and spring hangers) is what your trailer rides on - making this a critical part of an inspection.
  • Lights- With proper working lights, your safety and the safety of others are protected.
  • Braking System - Proper operation of your braking system on your trailer is not only crucial for proper braking while towing, but also for proper braking when in an emergency situation. If you get a bearing repack service, we also inspect your braking system which includes the wiring, brake shoes, magnets, wheel cylinders and more.
  • Grease Fittings - If your trailer has grease fittings, we inspect and re-grease your fittings on your trailer to keep those parts lubricated to ensure longevity and lifespan of your parts.
  • Ball Coupler- Proper ball coupler operation is critical when towing. Torklift inspects the coupler latch mechanism and coupler ball socket to ensure proper operation.
  • Safety Chains – We inspect your safety chains for proper length when towing, as well as for wear and tear. It’s common to see faulty safety chains due to the chains being dragged while the trailer is being towed.
  • Chassis and Frame - When performing a chassis/frame inspection, we inspect the frame and chassis of your trailer for fracture points, cracks, tears, or rust in the trailer’s frame that poses a potential risk to the trailer structure.

Being in an environment in which I can problem solve is where I flourish. Every answer to a problem leads me to a new concept to understand or a lesson to learn. When I'm not solving problems I enjoy camping and going to festivals with my family - from the local city center festivals to the mountains of Wenatchee at the Winter Grass, blue grass music festival. Experiencing culture is where my heart is content.
