Suspension

Suspension, Louisville, KY

High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Louisville, 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 American Brake Centers Inc. to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at American Brake Centers 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 American Brake Centers Inc. are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 3435 Bashford Ave Ct or give us a call at 502-459-0355 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 Louisville 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 American Brake Centers Inc. at 3435 Bashford Ave Ct for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance

Drivers in Louisville come to American Brake Centers Inc. to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At American Brake Centers Inc. we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at American Brake Centers Inc. to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call American Brake Centers Inc. at 502-459-0355 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 Louisville come to American Brake Centers 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 American Brake Centers 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 502-459-0355 or stop by our auto repair shop at 3435 Bashford Ave Ct to set up an appointment.

Sway Bars: At American Brake Centers Inc. we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in Louisville 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 American Brake Centers Inc. in Louisville 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 American Brake Centers Inc. every day. Call American Brake Centers Inc. at 502-459-0355 or stop by our auto repair shop in Louisville 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 American Brake Centers 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 American Brake Centers Inc. we know driving enthusiasts in Louisville demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Louisville 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 American Brake Centers 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 American Brake Centers Inc. at 502-459-0355 and let's talk wheelie bars.


What Our Customers Are Saying

I can't say enough good things about this place. We've been thru quite an ordeal with a van we bought that looked all pretty from the outside but beneath that hood lurked some pretty hefty neglect. Scott and Mark were so patient and fair to us to get it fixed. We've always been Toyota people. This time we thought... let's try a dodge... good price, lots of room. Well our good price almost doubled. Even after all the money we spent to get it fixed it's still not running great. We decided we're done with it! Trading it on Monday for a Toyota Sienna. I highly recommend American Brake. They are honest and not out to rip you off in any way. That's how a good business succeeds. A+++++ Thank you guys!!

The work at American Brake Center has been excellent. I have 4 cars serviced at American Brake Center. They do great work. Their prices are very competitive with other places. Scott and his crew of mechanics have done great work on all my cars. Scott always lets me know what needs to be done immediately and what is coming down the line in terms of repairs. He has also helped me in buying two cars for my daughters. He and his mechanics inspected the cars and let me know what kind of shape they were in. This was so helpful for me in feeling comfortable in assisting my daughters get good, reliable cars. I would highly recommend this shop for good, honest, and efficient work on any type of car!

I got my brakes and my rotors replaced here, and it was by far a great experience. Often times I feel auto shops like to take advantage of me, but the gentlemen who helped me seemed to honestly care about the well being of my vehicle & not trying to ?pull one over on me.? I will definitely be back for my auto needs.

Scheduled an appointment the day before and arrived on time, but they were bogged down with work, so I was "worked in" as soon as they could get to me, which caused me to wait in the waiting room much longer than I should have with a pre-scheduled appointment. Service and quality are outstanding-have used them several times before, and will do so again when I need brakes. I do recommend them.

I can't recommend this place enough! Their customer service is top notch and they fixed the issues my truck had. I was visiting Louisville when my truck broke down. I called American Brake Center and they were very helpful and understanding of the situation. Scott did a great job at making me understand how and why my truck wasn't working properly and how to fix it. I will definitely use them again in the future!

Scott and the guys at American Brake are awesome. I have been going there for a few years now and they do great work and are honest. That's what keeps me going back!

This guy took a car that was bordering street legality and not only made it work like new, but also did so at an extremely fair price. When other shops were quoting thousands of dollars, he said $600. When the repair needed a component that he hadn't foreseen to tell me about, he added it for only the cost of the part, not adding the cost of labor. This shop is worth your time, money, and trust.

reviewicon

They are very helpful and they replaced my brakes quickly. He even changed my oil for free. I would highly recommend this place for both the price and the quality of service.

Bill and his crew go above and beyond to get it right. Been a customer for years and will keep going back. Service they way you expect it to be! Highly recommended.

reviewicon

Extremely helpful and definitely the most affordable compared to other quotes I got before using their services. Total was hundreds less than expected and car is running perfectly!

reviewicon

Being a female and not knowing much about car mechanics, it is so important for me to be assured that my car is in good hands with mechanics I trust. The guys are never pushing and always call me before any work is done to my vehicle and let me know how much it will cost and what is being done. I highly recommend American Brake on Bashford Ave. Ct. Great bunch of guys!
