SUSPENSION WORK

Ensuring your suspension is up to par is an important component of a well-maintained vehicle. But you shouldn't trust your suspension work to just anyone! Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. offers affordable services that are hassle-free and reliable every time. Contact us at 919-934-2694 or send us an email for more details!

Our Suspension services include:

Air Spring
Air suspension is used in place of conventional steel springs in heavy vehicle applications such as buses and trucks. It is broadly used on semi-trailers. The purpose of air suspension is to provide a smooth, constant ride quality. Modern electronically controlled systems almost always feature self-leveling along with raising and lowering functions. Although traditionally called air bags or air bellows, the correct term is air spring (although these terms are also used to describe just the rubber bellows element with its end plates). Trust the experts at Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. when your truck's air bag suspension needs service, repair, or replacement. Call us at 919-934-2694 to schedule an appointment.

Equalizers
Suspension equalizers are an effective aftermarket innovation for rear leaf suspensions. The equalizers are designed to aid in the carrying ability of your truck. Equalizers have the following advantages: fuel economy, increased safety, increased power, reduced tire wear, improved steering, and improved braking.

Most equalizer kits include U-bolts, Equalizer Bars, Shackle Plates, Greasable Bolts, Rollers, Spring Washers, Washers, U-bolt Plates, and Nylon Locking Nuts. For all your suspension equalizer needs, visit or call Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. in Smithfield, NC 27577 today.

Hangers
Hangers are an effective way to enhance your truck's driving stability, handling, and suspension response. Hangers lower your truck's center of gravity, protecting it from rollovers in turns and corners and help you modify your truck's ground clearance. Whether you want to lower or raise your truck using hangers, call 919-934-2694 or visit Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. today.

Shocks
Shock absorbers are mechanical devices designed to smooth out shock impulses, thus reducing the effects of traveling over rough roads. Shocks convert kinetic energy that is formed when a vehicle travels over rough ground into another form of energy.

With shocks, you will be able to take your truck to places you never thought possible. Shocks work together with springs (they damp spring oscillations) to give your truck the best overall performance and the ability to carry the maximum load. For all your shock servicing, shock repairs and shock replacement needs, call or visit Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. today.

Torque Arms & Walking Beams
A torque arm is a metal arm attached between a drive axle and the vehicle's frame. Torque arms prevent axle rotation in hub motors. It prevents the wheels from trying to rotate the axle relative to the vehicle's frame under acceleration (or in the opposite direction during braking).

A walking beam is an oscillating lever that pivots on a central axis and uses internal cam technology to transmit linear stroke in two directions (produces a reciprocating or reversible motion).

For all your torque arm and walking beam servicing needs, visit Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. in Smithfield, NC 27577.

Testimonials

  • They do a very thorough check of my car at each oil change to make sure there isnt any issues that I should be concerned about. It does take a little longer to check it over instead of just changing the oil and filter, but my peace of mind in knowing whats going on with my car is worth a few more minutes of my day. If there is a "list" of things my car needs they will let me know if any are safety related or if there maintenance related. I would rather know whats wrong rather than drive around thinking everything is fine when its not. Love the shop and the people. Highly recommend!

  • We brought our car here as a referral from another customer who had a good experience. The staff was excellent and went above and beyond to make sure the issue with our car was corrected. They did give us a list of other things that needed to be corrected with our car, which we found was very helpful. We were able to plan what repairs were needed and when to get them done. Never once did they try to push or sell us services. We are thankful for honest mechanics.
