Torklift Central offers several services in Kent, Seattle, Renton, Tacoma, Auburn and the surrounding cities since 1976 to keep your trailer suspension running smoothly and safely. Some of our most recommended services include bearing replacement, brake service, axle alignment, axle and suspension repair or replacement, and custom brackets or fabrication.
Even a fraction of an inch of misalignment in your trailer axle can compromise your wallet as well as your safety. If not corrected, axle misalignment will cause:
Unnatural and premature tire wear that can result in a blowout
Trailer suspension damage and failure
Wandering, jerking and tension that transfers to your tow vehicle compromising ride stability and causing damage to your vehicle’s trailer hitch and frame
To help maintain your trailer suspension, brakes, bearings and more – we offer a FREE, 10-point safety inspection with scheduled service to make sure that you are towing safely on the road with your cargo.
