Suspension

High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Willoughby, 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 Lakeside Certified Auto to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at Lakeside Certified Auto 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 Lakeside Certified Auto are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 38525 Lakeshore Blvd or give us a call at 440-946-0076 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 Willoughby 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 Lakeside Certified Auto at 38525 Lakeshore Blvd for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance

Drivers in Willoughby come to Lakeside Certified Auto to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At Lakeside Certified Auto we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at Lakeside Certified Auto to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call Lakeside Certified Auto at 440-946-0076 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 Willoughby come to Lakeside Certified Auto 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 Lakeside Certified Auto 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 440-946-0076 or stop by our auto repair shop at 38525 Lakeshore Blvd to set up an appointment.

Sway Bars: At Lakeside Certified Auto we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in Willoughby 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 Lakeside Certified Auto in Willoughby 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 Lakeside Certified Auto every day. Call Lakeside Certified Auto at 440-946-0076 or stop by our auto repair shop in Willoughby 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 Lakeside Certified Auto 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 Lakeside Certified Auto we know driving enthusiasts in Willoughby demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Willoughby 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 Lakeside Certified Auto 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 Lakeside Certified Auto at 440-946-0076 and let's talk wheelie bars.

  • This was my first time going to this repair shop and I WILL ALWAYS go back! My heat was not working and I had 2 different estimates from other shops who quoted me at $950-$1,000 to replace my heater and it didn't sound right to me so I brought it here and the guys called me a few hours after dropping it off and said nothing is wrong with my heater, someone had UNPLUGGED something to keep my heat from working. It goes to show how dishonest other shops really are that they lied to me but Lakeside Auto was honest with me and saved me so much unnecessary money. They could have lied to get more $ but they don't do business that way and I appreciate them so much! the trouble I was put in with no heat for 2 weeks with my baby was horrid and im so thankful to have found an honest shop!!

  • This is my "go to" place for repairs. I break down in the morning, get towed to their building and left before end of day!

  • If I could rate them higher, I would! Had my car at Mentor Nissan over 3 days, and they weren't able to find out what was wrong with it (I drive a Nissan Altima). Took my car over to Lakeside, and within 12 hours I knew exactly what was wrong with my car, and it would only cost me a FRACTION of what Mentor Nissan quoted me. Fast, Reliable, Professional, and Very Friendly!

  • I needed a specific repair done that the dealership quoted at $1800. Lakeside originally quoted $1600 but they promised to do some research and came back to me with an $800 quote. They did a good job on the fix and even gave me a car to use- no extra charge- while they worked on my car.
