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 410-799-2500 or visit Columbia Fleet Service 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 Columbia Fleet Service in Jessup, MD 20794 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 410-799-2500 or visit Columbia Fleet Service today.
Had to have my tractor/trailer (78' long, 75K lbs) towed yesterday. Dustin, tow truck driver, arrived earlier than anticipated. He had my truck hooked and on the way to Kenworth dealership in about 30 mins. Have been towed a couple of times before. It took other drivers much longer. It did not take long for me to realize Dustin knew what he was doing. He paid particular attention to safety of my truck (large sleeper (120") and loaded trailer (enclosed car hauler with extended bubble on front). He was very professional, safe, and personable. He did an excellent job! Highly recommend his services!
