Suspension

Working with name brand manufactures to provide the best-performing and safest fully-functioning suspensions is key for a ride in order to have superior handling. There are many factors involved in properly setting up your vehicle from ride height to travel and safety. What's great about our shop is that we enjoy researching and designing unusual setups where many vehicle applications might not be available, and some are just not right and need a bit of re-engineering. Our ASE Master certified technicians will restore every nook and cranny of your suspension, because we pride ourselves in actually looking at and correcting even the smallest details. It's not about just the cosmetic restoration; it's about the safety and function ability.
