Chassis, Suspension, and Brakes

Chassis

Looking for a bad-to-the bone chassis? Though often overlooked and invisible, the chassis is one of the most important parts of your ride. The chassis is what can give your ride superb handling and awesome performance. What makes a high dollar ride superior to us is the attention to detail in the places most people can not see. Its also one of the reasons we take so many pictures during a build. We have been building custom chassis for over twenty years. From Air ride to race and pro touring applications, we specialize in making high-quality frames that are built, not bought. Our fabrication and body shop will take your original OE chassis and restore it to factory condition or better.

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.

Brakes

By far, the most important part of your car is probably its ability to stop. Anyone with an older drum brake set-up knows just how difficult they are to stop. Your vehicle might not be able to react quickly in an emergency. New "Late Model" vehicles handle so much better. You have the option to get the safety of a new vehicle in your older vehicle. We can convert your manual drum brakes to hydraulic, fast-stopping disc brakes. We work primarily with Wilwood and Baer brakes. We can also build your systems with steel or stainless lines. Another great aspect of our shop is that our technicians have been working with older style drum brakes for many years, and you sometimes find younger technicians really don't have enough experience in properly setting and calibrating older vehicles.
