Wear and tear is a normal process for vehicles, as drivers rack up mile after mile throughout a routine calendar year. If you spend a lot of time on the road, or you like to take on the dirt trails, it’s important to protect your ride for the best returns. Many of us are aware of the dangers of moisture and debris impacting the bottom of our vehicles, but choose not to acknowledge the inevitable onset of damage and corrosion.

Oil and Transmission Pans
As one of the lowest points along the bottom of your vehicle, the oil pan provides easy access for oil changes. However, when it comes to impacts, weather, and subsequent corrosion, many Boise drivers may discover an unpleasant surprise when they go to check their oil pans. While light corrosion is not much to worry over, serious rust can leave you in a dire spot. Instead of risking running out of oil, many driving enthusiasts opt instead to protect their vehicles with powder coating.
Some drivers are not aware of the seriousness of their vehicle’s rust until they come out one morning and spot transmission fluid streaming down their driveway. Rust can prove to be a common problem for transmission pans, and unfortunately for drivers with warranties, this corrosion will likely not be covered. If you’re planning on putting your vehicle through the ringer, powder coating for this vital component may prove helpful in keeping leaks and rust away.
There are numerous parts that comprise your vehicle’s suspension, with plenty of surface area available for rust to make its appearance. If you notice corrosion forming along your shocks and struts, we recommend not to panic right away. These components are replaceable, and will eventually need to be swapped out to improve your ride. The parts surrounding these pieces, however, should be watched for signs of trouble.
Control arms, for example, are prone to rust over time and provide serious support in your vehicle’s handling. The suspension mounts in your vehicle (where the shocks and struts are installed) can absorb some wear and tear of the years, creating the possibility of rust at a critical junction. These points absorb a lot of energy, and should be inspected periodically for signs of damage to avoid any safety concerns or surprise repair bills later on!
