High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Palatine, 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 Action Auto Services, Inc. to get the job done right.

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 Palatine 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 Action Auto Services, Inc. at 648 E Northwest Hwy for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

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 Action Auto Services, 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.

Leaf Springs
Trust the auto repair mechanics at Action Auto Services, 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 Action Auto Services, Inc. are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 648 E Northwest Hwy or give us a call at 224-801-6094 to set up an appointment to get your new leaf springs installed fast.

Truck owners in Palatine come to Action Auto Services, 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 Action Auto Services, 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 224-801-6094 or stop by our auto repair shop at 648 E Northwest Hwy to set up an appointment.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance
Drivers in Palatine come to Action Auto Services, Inc. to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At Action Auto Services, Inc. we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at Action Auto Services, Inc. to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call Action Auto Services, Inc. at 224-801-6094 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.

Sway Bars
At Action Auto Services, Inc. we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in Palatine 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 Action Auto Services, Inc. in Palatine 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 Action Auto Services, Inc. every day. Call Action Auto Services, Inc. at 224-801-6094 or stop by our auto repair shop in Palatine today.

Tie Rods
At Action Auto Services, Inc. we know driving enthusiasts in Palatine demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Palatine 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 Action Auto Services, 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 Action Auto Services, Inc. at 224-801-6094 and let's talk wheelie bars.

Great!!!

I had an appointment at another shop that was a installer for tires that I had purchased at Tire Rack (Pep Boys Palatine). When I got there at my scheduled appointment time they told me it would be at least a two hour wait before they got to my car. I asked what was the purpose of making an appointment then? I then asked how much additional fees would be for installing my tires as their fee was advertised as $78. I realized that my car had tire pressure sensors and it was a good idea to replace them while the tires were off the rims. I had priced what Tire pressure sensors for my car would cost before I got to their shop. The price varied from different sources but the range was from $30 to $80 each. I figured on the high end as I was a new customer to them. So in my mind $80 X 4 = $320 + $78 install = $398 + tax $40 Total around $438. They said $548!!! I said what is the extra $110 for. Pep Boys says to program the sensors. At this point I was furious, so I said forget it I'll take my tires somewhere else. I went down the street to Action Auto where the owner Ira, listened to my story and took my car in without an appointment. They then removed my tires and tire pressure sensors and mounted my new tires with new tire pressure sensors, balanced the tires and reprogrammed the tire sensors to be compatible with my cars system. They even checked and doubled checked that all four tire sensors were showing the correct tire pressures. The cost for all these services with tax out the door $318. $318 vs. Pep Boys $548 not to mention them telling me I would have to wait at least two hours before they could get to my scheduled appointment, I guess I made the right decision plus I saved $230! Thanks Ira, Jose and Mike!!!!!!!
