The pitch stops mount is a small, triangular piece of metal attached to the car’s underside. Its purpose is to keep the car from bouncing up and down as it moves. If the pitch stop mount is not properly adjusted, the car can bounce and shake, which can be dangerous and uncomfortable. Adjusting a pitch stop on a car can sound like a daunting task, but it can be a relatively easy process with the right tools and a little bit of know-how. Today, we’ll explain how to adjust this mount on your car. So, let’s jump right into it.
Park your car on a level surface and put it on jack stands.
Park your car on a level surface and apply the parking brake. Jack up the car and place it on the jack stands. Before making any adjustments, you’ll need to jack up your car and place it on jack stands. This will give you room to work and keep the car from moving while you’re adjusting. Remember, safety is of the utmost importance.
Locate the pitch stop mount.
Once the car is in the air, locate the pitch stop mount. The mount is typically a cylindrical piece of metal located near the back of the brake rotor and is usually held in place by two bolts. You can find the mount by looking under your car, near the front-left or front-right corner.
Adjust the pitch stop.
With your car in a safe position and the mount located, you’ll want to remove the wheel that corresponds to the side of the car you’re working on. Once the wheel is off, you’ll see the brake rotor and mount that you located earlier.
To begin adjusting your pitch stop, you can use a wrench to adjust the bolts. The idea is to loosen the bolts until the mount can move freely, then retighten the bolts. If the pitch mount is not adjustable or already adjusted to the correct position, you can use a hammer to tap the pitch stop mount in the correct position. You can use a block of wood as a buffer to avoid damaging the pitch mount. The idea is to tap the pitching stopper until it is in the correct position.
If the mount is damaged, you can replace it with a new one. If the mount is not damaged, you can clean it and then reattach it to the car. Make sure that the bolts are tightened securely before driving the car.
Test out the adjusted pitch mount.
Now that you’ve adjusted the pitch mount, it’s time to test it out! Start your car and drive it around the block. You’ll want to pay attention to how the car feels as you drive. If the car feels unstable or like it’s bouncing too much, you’ll need to adjust the pitch mount further. You can adjust the pitch mount by tightening or loosening the bolts the same as before. If the car feels unstable, then tighten the bolts. If the car feels too bouncy, then loosen the bolts. Keep driving the car around and adjusting the mount until the car feels stable. Once the car feels stable, you’re done!
Drive safely and enjoy your newly adjusted mount.
That’s all there is to it! Adjusting a pitch stop mount on a car is relatively easy, but it is important to ensure everything is done correctly. This means taking your time and ensuring that all bolts are tightened securely and that the mount is properly aligned. Additionally, it is good to check the mount periodically to ensure it has not come loose or shifted position. By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your car’s pitch stopper is properly adjusted and provides the best performance possible. So, drive safely and enjoy the increased performance.
