Today's Technician: Automotive Suspension and Steering, 3E continues to strike the perfect balance between theory and practice. The new edition of this tightly coordinated Classroom/Shop Manual package is guaranteed to guide users to the expertise they need to diagnosis and service suspension and steering systems on today's cars, SUVs, and light-duty trucks. Unmatched for completeness, this edition now offers opportunities to explore the latest advancements in suspension and steering technology, including: run-flat tires, shock absorber mountings on SUVs, the effect of 42V electrical systems on power steering pumps, electronic power and four-wheel steering systems, and new wheel alignment procedures. Shop safety, including procedures for handling hazardous waste, is stressed. Cautions and warnings also appear at strategic points to reinforce the importance of following safe working procedures, while case studies and practical customer care tips play an important role in linking must-know theory to the real-life practices of today's professional, ASE-certified technicians.
