4X4 SERVICES

The technicians at Lunar Low Automotive have years of experience working on standard 4-wheel drive (4x4) vehicles as well as all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles. AWD is a full-time 4-wheel-drive system (all four wheels receive torque from the engine simultaneously) that employs a center differential that allows each tire to rotate at different speeds.

We understand the special needs of these vehicles. These are some of the services we offer.


Alignment
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Lunar Low Automotive.

Differentials
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact Lunar Low Automotive today for differentials examination and servicing.

Driveline
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at Lunar Low Automotive, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let Lunar Low Automotive replace your worn out hubs today.

Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit Lunar Low Automotive today.

Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 910-769-0994 or visit Lunar Low Automotive today.

A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit Lunar Low Automotive in Wilmington, NC 28401 today.

Transfer Cases
A transfer case is a part of a four wheel drive system found in four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with a set of gears, but the majority of transfer cases manufactured today are chain driven. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts. Trust the automotive experts at Lunar Low Automotive for all your transmission repairs.

Transmissions
Transmission repair is not something to take lightly. The transmission is connected to key parts of your vehicle and needs to be working properly for your safety. Transmission services include replacing filters and draining fluids to prevent transmission damage. Typical transmission issues that may lead to repair may include shifting issues, slipping, stalling, fluid leaking, and the service light turning on. If you are concerned that you may need transmission repair, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment at Lunar Low Automotive today.

Wheel Bearings
Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. Lunar Low Automotive can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.

What People Say About Us


  • -Ronda H.

    I could not be happier with my experience at Lunar Low. It was great taking my car to a shop I could trust and the cost was a fraction of the quote I had gotten at another shop. I would not hesitate to take my car back to David and Wayne. As a female it is great to have a place I can trust!!!


  • -Brian P.

    I brought my Acura TSX to get the exterior waxed. The employees down at Lunar Low Automotive took extra special care of my car and now it's shinier than the day I bought it. They even spent extra attention to detail and we're able to get door dings out of my doors from other cars opening their car doors into mine. They even made my exhaust pipes shine again! Would definitely refer their quality of work to anyone I know!


  • -Matt J.

    Took my Jeep to these guys on a recommendation from a friend and after 2 visits (for separate issues), my jeep is on the road again with no issues that I can find. I had my transfer case replaced, front differential rebuilt and an axle bearing replaced. They didn't promise more than they could deliver and delivered on what they "promised" and they're very competitively priced. I would not think twice to take my jeep there for repairs. Thanks Lunar Low for a job well done.


  • -Holly M.

    Took my 1998 TJ (Jeff) to Lunar Low because the rear end needed work. Ended up rebuilding the rear end, upgrading to 4.10 gears, and coming across more problems than we originally realized. I got Jeff back the other day and it's like a whole new Jeep!! Pricing was fair and I highly recommend these guys for all your automotive needs!!


  • -Shawn S.

    Fiest of all..great group of guys at Lunar Low!! As often happens when it's a female taking in her car she gets treated like she is clueless!! Not these guys!! Very respectful and friendly! Secondly..I have a 2012 Chrysler 200 and everything was still factory on it. I needed brakes..rotars..tires..oil change and wipers. Total price was fantastic and car was just like the day I drove it off the lot!! I will be recommending Lunar Low to all my friends! Thank you for everything!!!


  • -John M.

    Had air conditioner problem with our 2011 Equinox. Second time with problem. Another repair shop replaced complete system(suppossedly) only 1 1/2 years ago. Compressor was bad again. Thanks to Wayne we were able to get a new one put in for half the price we were charged before. Thanks to everyone for their help and I believe this will be my shop to go to from now on. Again thanks for your help.


  • -Chris B.

    Honest and fair mechanics can be tough to come by in this town and I'd heard nothing but great things about this place. So when my girlfriend started having issues with her SUV, I told her to bring it by. Best choice we could have made. They quickly, and properly, diagnosed and repaired the problem.They didn't try to tack on any unnecessary repairs or extra cost. Not only that, but their prices are great!


  • -Stretch A.

    Knowledgeable, and fairly priced. I don't take my YJ anywhere else. If I can't do it, they can. Extremely helpful guys, can't say enough about them.


  • -Leslie C.

    I took my 08 Wrangler to them when it was having issues with wandering all over the road and having to fight it to drive a straight line. I knew it was going to have some serious issues and have a massive price tag because of its age and the height of the lift that I?d put on it, but I didn?t expect the guys in this shop to be as helpful and truthful as they were. They found the best prices for the parts that were needed, and they even went out of their way to physically show me what was wrong with my vehicle instead of just listing off all the problems without explaining the situation. I?ve never had a better experience with any other shop anywhere, and I won?t hesitate to bring my vehicle back to them for anything from a minor oil change to extreme repairs. There?s no one else I?d trust as much as these folks and certainly nobody else I?ll be going to.


  • -Patricia W.

    Everyone is so nice, very accommodating and their prices are so reasonable! I highly recommend Lunar Low!!!


  • -Amber B.

    These guys are always so honest and helpful. I even got assistance when they were busy trying to fix their own shop from the hurricane. always honest. always fair. always incredibly kind. I cannot recommend them enough. They have fixed my tires, done my inspection, fixed my AC (when nissan couldnt!) and helped me when they werent even technically open. Support local honest and fair mechanics. They are amazing!


  • -Shane M.

    They listen to the vision I had in mind for my tacoma and spent time helping me understanding the pros and cons and making the right choices. They ordered the tires, rims and lift kit and had them in shop in just a few days. They were able to work with my schedule to get the job done all the while staying in contact throughout the whole experience. I was blown away with how great the truck turned out and really felt confident with David and Wayne getting it right. I would HIGHLY recommended Lunar low automotive for your vehicle needs, especially off road. They truly are a one stop shop experience with the ability to order and install/tune the parts. Thanks so much David, Wayne and your team and look forward to doing more business in the future.


  • -Christina B.

  • -Julie T.

    I was very impressed with my first trip there. They were very honest and pricing was reasonable. They even offered to stay open late on a Friday for me after I had an unrelated ignition issue when I returned to work after my lunch hour- above and beyond. Thank you again!


  • -Jaye J.

    I took my car here about a week ago for a new starter....Not only was the customer service exceptional but David was able to find the part for a cheaper price (which saved me money) AND they stayed passed closing just so I could have my car the next day! Can't say enough about Wayne and David!!! This is THE GO TO place for your automotive needs! Thanks guys!

    This is by far the best priced with the most most honest auto mechanics I have ever dealt with!! I highly recommend anyone with any auto problem to go here first !! You will not be sorry!! They rock!!!at such a fair and honest price!! Thank you Rusty and Karen Bowers for the recommendation!!!


  • -Shari U.

    David and Wayne saved me over $3,000 by going the extra mile and checking things out where 3 other mechanics were quick to tell me I needed a new engine or head gasket....my fix was a simple part that was replaced with an oil change. They are now my and my family's mechanics for life!


  • -Charles W.

    These guys are the most trustworthy mechanics I had meet in over 30 years. They gave a detailed quote on repairs and a very fair price. This will be me and my family's preferred garage going forward. Thank you guys for a job WELL DONE.


  • -Felicia P.

    After being referred to Lunar Low by a friend, we brought our vehicle in to have a few issues checked out. We were impressed with their honesty and speed at resolving the issues our suv was having. They are our go to shop now for everything from tires to inspections and any vehicle maintenance related. We highly recommend this place to all our friends now.
