    Tyres and Wheel Alignment

    Tyres and Wheel Alignments

    Sunshine Steering provide a huge range of tyre brands and options at some of the most competitive prices you’ll find. We also offer a very comprehensive wheel balance and alignment service that involves a lot more then just the standard toe set alignment that is often performed as a free service. Our service, called a full geometric wheel alignment, covers all of the different components and will increase the lifespan of your tyres significantly while providing maximum drivability and comfort.

    If you have any questions or would like more information about any of our wheel balancing, wheel alignment or tyre selection services, give us a call on (07) 5478 8020 today – we provide free estimates over the phone.

    Wheel Balance and Alignment

    If you are noticing that your car is becoming more difficult to drive and seems to have a mind of its own, often veering to the left or right slightly, then it may be time for a wheel balance and alignment. At Sunshine Steering, we provide a Full Geometric Wheel Alignment, which involves checking and setting all of the following:

    • Camber
    • Caster
    • Set Bank
    • Rear Camber Tow
    • Key Pin Inclination
    • Steering Access Inclination

    Having a full geometric wheel alignment performed on your vehicle every 10 – 15,000km is important to make sure that everything is square and where it should be – you do not want your car to be bent, laddered or off-set. It is especially important if you live on a dirt road or regularly drive through areas with a lot of pot-holes (or have a bad habit of driving into or hitting curbs!) because these things can knock your alignment out of place.

    Tyre Brands We Work With:

    • Bridgestone
    • Maxtrek
    • Michelin
    • Kumho
    • Federal
    • Hankook
    • Goodyear
    • Dunlop
    • And more…


    Sunshine Steering Can Replace The Car Battery For Any Make or Model

    We also offer a battery test in-house so if you are not sure whether your battery needs to be replaced or repaired, you can bring your vehicle in and we’ll check all of the components and make sure that it is charging correctly.

    A lot of modern day motor vehicles have to use specific batteries so that they can partner up with the car’s computer – at Sunshine Steering, we have a special tool that allows us to save all of the car’s settings and we are experts at re-programming the car’s computer so that it knows exactly what kind of battery it is using.

    If you have any questions regarding replacing, repairing or checking the health of your car battery, give us a call on (07) 5478 8020 today. We provide free estimates over the phone for all of our services.

    AC Delco Batteries

    We stock a wide range of AC Delco Batteries including the Amaron and Power-Sonic sub-brands. AC Delco Batteries are a great option for anyone who drives a 4-wheel-drive and does a lot of towing and camping because they offer more power.

    All Amaron Batteries come with a 2-year warranty and the Power-Sonic range comes with a 12-month warranty. Sunshine Steering carry all sizes within the range, so if you are not sure which brand and size will work best for you, give us a call on (07) 5478 8020 and we’ll help you figure it out.

    Alco Batteries

    Alco Batteries are fully-sealed calcium batteries, and are a great option for anyone who goes travelling overseas or interstate a lot and leaves their vehicle behind for weeks or even months at a time. Whereas a normal battery would require charging before your car would turn on, the alco batteries offer more longevity – in most cases, your car will just turn on after an extended period of non-use.

    Alco and Apex batteries come with a 2-year warranty and Sunshine Steering offer all sizes within the range.


    Seat Belt & Child Restraints

    Why Do I Need Child Restraint Anchor Points?

    In Queensland, there are laws that state how a child restraint or booster seat should be installed and used. Not having the seat installed correctly can land you a nasty fine as well as up to three demerit points for each incorrectly restrained child. You also run the risk of your child getting seriously injured if you are in an accident.

    Sunshine Steering are Australian Design Rules (ADR) approved, which means that we are authorised to both certify and install seat belts and child restraint anchor points to Australian and Queensland standards.

    To enquire about our seat belt and child restraint anchor point inspection and installation services, call Sunshine Steering today on (07) 5478 8020.

    Seat Belt and Child Restraint Certification

    Sunshine Steering are authorised to inspect the installation of seat belts and anchor points for child restraints and booster seats and then issue ADR approvals to state that they meet Australian standards.

    When you bring your vehicle in for the inspection, we will check that all of the safety aspects meet ADR standards and then if it passes all of the requirements we send the paperwork off to the Department of Transport to inform them that your car meets Australian standards.

    Seat Belt and Child Restraint Installation

    A lot of utes and vehicles that have small backseats do not come with anchor points for child restraints because they have no space between the seats and the actual cab. Without the anchor point, you cannot connect up your baby seat or capsule.

    Sunshine Steering can install an anchor point in your ute or vehicle that meets ADR standards – this will not only help you dodge a hefty fine and 3 demerit points, but more importantly, it will ensure that your children are safely restrained in case of an accident.

    Automatic Transmissions

    Automatic Transmission Servicing and Flushing

    The standard vehicle needs to have its transmission serviced every 40,000kms, but if you are regularly towing heavy loads like boats or caravans then you should look at getting it done more frequently. At Sunshine Steering we provide automatic transmission servicing as well as a full flush service that removes 100% of the oil in the transmission system.

    Sunshine Steering are honest mechanics – we will always be upfront about the cost of our services and if we find anything extra that needs to replaced or repaired during a service, we will always call you and give you a quote before we move forward with the job. At the end of each service we give you a report stating what we have performed on the vehicle, and because we are authorized REPCO mechanics, our work is guaranteed Australia-wide by all other REPCO mechanics.

    If you have any questions about automatic transmission servicing or would like to receive a free over-the-phone quote, then give us a call on (07) 5478 8020 today.

    Automatic Transmission Flushing:

    At Sunshine Steering, we have invested in a piece of machinery that flushes 100% of the oil out of your transmission system. The standard transmission system holds 9 litres of oil, and when you perform a simple oil drain, you are only removing about 3 litres of oil – so you are actually only replacing a third of the oil in the system. The other 6 litres are still in there, and the only way to get them out completely is by flushing them out with special machinery. The machine will flush the automatic transmission system including the automatic cooler and the automatic transmission itself.

    ADR Modifications

    ADR Modifications and Certifications

    Anytime you make a modification to your vehicle, it has to comply with the Australian Design Rules (ADR). The rules are in place to protect the safety of all of the passengers in the car, and if your modifications do not meet these standards, you could be issued a fine and demerit points.

    Sunshine Steering are a Certified ADR Mechanic which means that we can not only make the modifications to ADR standards but we can also certify any modifications that you have had done elsewhere.

    If you would like more information about ADR modifications and certifications, or would like to request an estimate, give us a call on (07) 5478 8020 today.

    ADR Modifications:

    If you are thinking of putting a bigger engine in your car, adding a turbo or putting in roll bars, then contact Sunshine Steering. Our experienced mechanics are qualified and certified to make modifications to vehicles that comply with Australian Design Rules.

    Some of our most common modifications include:

    Once the modifications are complete we send a copy of the paperwork to the Department of Transport to state that the alterations were completed by a qualified mechanic and that they meet the ADR requirements for safety.

    ADR Certifications:

    If you have had modifications done on your vehicle and you are not sure if they meet ADR standards, bring your car into Sunshine Steering and we’ll check the quality of the work. We will inspect all of the safety aspects of the alterations and make sure that the welding and engineering practices comply. If your vehicle passes the inspection then we will sign it off and send the paperwork to the Department of Transport.

    How do I know if there is a problem with my suspension?

    If your car is driving erratically down the road or you can hear a banging, clanging, knocking or rattling sound then it is probably time to get your car looked at by a professional mechanic.

    How do I know if there is something wrong with my power steering?

    If you’ve noticed that your car is starting to make strange noises whenever you turn the steering wheel then it is probably time to book it in for a power steering service or check-up.

    Your power steering system consists of several components including power-steering fluid, power steering pump and a rack. Getting your fluid flushed and replaced on a regular basis is highly recommended to help extend the life of the more expensive parts of this system – if you can’t remember the last time your power steering fluid was flushed out and replaced then give us a call today on (07) 5478 8020 to book your car in.
