Suspension

High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Coralville, but when you are ready to take your car or truck suspension to the next level you need the experience of the auto repair mechanics at Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. to install this simple assembly that is the backbone of high-performance truck suspension. Absorb the shock of rough terrain when you are pushing your truck to its limit. These long, curved strips of steel are stacked in order of length and joined by a bolt at the center. Removing old rear axle springs can be a tough job and getting your new leaf springs bolted on tight is critical. The experienced professionals at Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 69 2nd Street or give us a call at 319-338-2053 to set up an appointment to get your new leaf springs installed fast.

Coil Springs: Coil springs look exactly like a simple coil. Placed on the top of an axle your coil springs store and release the energy when your car or truck is in motion. The coil spring absorbs the shock of Coralville potholes, speed bumps and other turbulent factors on track or rough terrain. Ensuring old springs are removed and new coils are aligned and fastened correctly is essential for maximum safety and handling. Trust the experienced auto repair specialists at Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. at 69 2nd Street for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance

Drivers in Coralville come to Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. at 319-338-2053 and schedule an appointment to install your lowering kit and shorten the distance between your car's body and the wheels to lessen the center of gravity and increase responsive handling.

Lift Kits

Got massive monster tires? Truck owners in Coralville come to Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. to install high-performance lift kits that will increase clearance and provide that aggressive monster truck stance. Securely installing strut mounts, longer springs, new shocks, and a range of hardware to raise up your truck is a tough job. Precisely calibrating the ground clearance larger wheels need is important for optimal safety and performance. Trust the auto repair experts at Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. to transform the look and function of your truck. Take on rugged terrain or just look cool when cruising by giving your truck a little lift. Call 319-338-2053 or stop by our auto repair shop at 69 2nd Street to set up an appointment.

Sway Bars: At Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in Coralville grip corners more easily and reduce the demand placed on the springs and suspension system. Prevent body roll when driving aggressively in curves with cold-formed steel alloy sway bars installed with exacting precision to offer bilateral spring deflection. The expert mechanics at Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. in Coralville can help you decrease the load difference between the wheels inside and outside the curve by adding sway bars today. Get convenient, affordable fast auto repairs and sway bar installation for high-performance cars at Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. every day. Call Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. at 319-338-2053 or stop by our auto repair shop in Coralville today.

Frame Rails: Ready to race? Offset chassis are not permitted on many tracks and require drivers to install parallel frame rails. Chassis frame rails are built to strict guidelines to provide maximum stabilization in a left-hand turn. Let our expert mechanics at Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. be your race team and make minute changes to the geometry of your suspension with frame rails to provide you with a total lower weight in the turns.

Tie Rods

At Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. we know driving enthusiasts in Coralville demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Coralville streets your front wheels pivot on steering knuckles connected to the steering rack. Your wheels are connected by the tie rod to the drag link bar to provide safety and handling in a turn. High-performance tie bars boast micro-adjustment options to make height and length adjustments between the tie rod and the wheel. The tie rod end that connects to the steering knuckle is susceptible to wear and failure with aggressive driving. Failure can throw off the car's alignment in a tight curve when the chassis of a car is under the most stress. High performance tie bar ends offer precision manufactured ball bearings to reduce wear and critical failures.

Wheelie Bars

These simple anti-roll devices look like casters connected to the rear bumper by long bars of flexible Chromoly tubing. Let Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. be a part of your race team and install wheelie bars when you are ready to race. Wheelie bars take over in a skid and progressively unload the energy of the tire to keep a car right side up. Ready to add this important safety option to your car? Call Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. at 319-338-2053 and let's talk wheelie bars.

    Always willing go the extra mile for you, Vehicle has been fixed the first time and quickly and accurate every time. Mike the owner is extremely knowledgeable about the vehicles and is willing to explain it to you in a way that makes sense. I don't see them adding in all this extra stuff many other shops need. Best place in town if you want to work with straight shooters.

    Everyone here was extremely friendly and helpful. My daughter and I felt very welcome and they took care of us in a timely fashion. They even recommended a place where I could purchase less expensive tires. I will be back! Thank you!

    I will not take my car anywhere else. They are trustworthy, fast, reliable, affordable, and they do not take advantage of you. They really value you here!

    Central Automotive is the only place I will go. Mike always finds time to fit me in no matter what the issue and keeps me and my fleet on the road. The team of mechanics can handle every situation from oil changes to full engine rebuilds and technical electrical issues. The staff is always friendly and most importantly honest. They understand my schedule and will even go pick up the cars or give me a loaner. Finding an automotive shop that you can trust is hard to find but I always get honest answers on what is worth fixing and what should wait and there is never unnecessary extras or running up the bill. 10 stars wasn't an option or they would get that.

    Knowledgeable, friendly, honest service. Will continue to visit for service. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my vehicle. They even gave me a lift home on the other side of town while doing my repairs. Great place, great people!

    My experience was amazing from the start. I called in about a nightmare of an oil leak. I was anticipating them being able to get me in by the afternoon at best, if not the next day, but Doc kindly answered the phone and told me to bring the car in as soon as I could. I brought it in an hour or two later, and they diagnosed the problem in ten minutes. Everyone was very communicative about the issue, and one member of the team even offered to give me a ride to work as it was going to take a couple of hours. Mike ensured that my car would be repaired by the end of the day, even with the several other projects already in line. It was just extremely refreshing to have honest, genuine, caring people providing top quality service. You can bet I'll be going there for my automotive needs from now on. Thank you!!
