Vehicle accessories aren’t just for the look, its for safety too!

Posted 1/14/2020

Not being crushed sounds great, right? A Roll bar, also known as an anti-roll bar, is a steel bar in the form of a U mounting framework positioned over the roof of the vehicle, designed to shield occupiers in the vehicle if an accident arises. Not only does this accessory provide rollover protection, but it also increases performance on sharp turns, strengthens the car’s frame and improves off-road control, it adds to the vehicle’s charm too!

Outdoors are fun, but protecting the front of your vehicle, mainly your headlights from small trees and brush are important. Carrying cattle, loading goods and added to the artistic look of the vehicle is just to name a few uses for cattle rails, also called tralies. Cattle rails are also used to keep people safe when travelling at the back of the vehicle.

If your vehicle can be towed with all four wheels down, your best option will then be a Town Bar, a tow bar is a device attached to the chassis of a vehicle, used for pulling and leading a vehicle when they need to be towed.

There are many bar or rail configurations in the market to choose from, it’s important to get the right type of bars and rails installed on your vehicle. To get top advice on our products, visit one of your nearest KJVR Undercar Fitment shops to help you choose the best option for you and your vehicle.

Don’t let the noise outshine the rest.

Posted 1/10/2020

We tend to think that an exhaust system only removes harmful gases produced in the engine, however, an exhaust system does a lot more. The exhaust system has four main functions to keep your car running: engine performance improvement, fuel consumption enhancement, noise control, and carries away gases.

The longer it takes for exhaust gases to exit your vehicle, the longer it requires to take in oxygen and create extra power. If you have an exhaust system that’s in excellent working condition it will allow your vehicle to breath better and faster, which means more capacity and better performance. The quicker exhaust leaves your vehicle, the better the fuel consumption you’ll have since your engine is available to take in clean oxygen.

As your engine runs, it generates thousands of little sounds bursts as highly pressurized gas is released. After dangerous elements have been eliminated from the exhaust gases, the gases travel through your vehicle’s muffler, which ‘tune’s your engine’s output, to reduces the sound of the gases leaving the vehicle.

For the exhaust gases to be routed out of the vehicle, the gases are collected by the exhaust manifold. The exhaust manifold acts as a funnel, capturing gases from the cylinders and freeing them through a single pipe.

If you hear any odd sounds coming from your exhaust or have concerns about the condition of your exhaust system, we recommend taking your car to one of our locally owned KJVR Undercar Fitment shops in Bronkhorstspruit and Delmas. Our qualified exhaust specialist will be able to assist you to identify the fault and recommend a proper solution.

STOP!

Going off the rails!

Posted 1/8/2020

A smooth ride can certainly make or break your trip.

Wheel alignment forms part of typical automobile upkeep that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels on your vehicle. The vital reason why wheel alignment is crucial for safe driving is the need to lessen tensions and strains on your vehicle suspension components and improve the control of your vehicle.

When driving on a straight and even road surface your vehicle will pull to one side, while other symptoms of improper wheel alignment include the steering wheel to go of center when driving in a straight direction and your tyres will start to shriek when you need to turn your vehicle.

Leaving your tyres unbalanced can lead to uneven wear and unnecessary risky driving situations, therefore, consistent wheel alignment will expand your tyre life and support your vehicle when driving in a straight manner.

Surely things can change, if your vehicle were involved in an accident or need an annual checkup, wheel alignment is just one of the many services KJVR Undercar Fitments provides. If you believe your vehicle needs to be checked by one of our automotive experts, we have shops in Bronkhorstspruit and Delmas.

Suspension is key...

Posted 1/7/2020

We’ve come a long way since horse-drawn carts, haven’t we!

More than a century of suspension theory and engineers are still adding new technology to improve vehicle performance. Designers have striven to create the best automotive suspensions to protect the vehicle from wear and tear.

When we talk of auto suspension, we are talking about the springs located in the front and the rear of the vehicle. These springs halt the "sprung" weight of the vehicle and absorb shocks when you go through rough surfaces. All trucks and cars have suspension systems that are composed of such components namely the sway bars, the shocks and the struts.

The car suspension system’s two main purposes are to keep the car securely on the road and to ensure that you have a comfortable journey. On the other hand, being in control is important, the steering system lets the driver control the direction of the car via the steering wheel.

Malfunctioning car systems can lead to accidents that could cause a lot of damage, to be sure that the systems of your car are functioning as they should, pop in at one of our local KJVR Undercar Fitments stores, we are situated in the Gauteng area with branches in Bronkhorstspruit and Delmas. We specialize in car suspension, shocks and struts repairs with top-notch car and truck suspension specialists.
