Suspension

High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Alexandria, 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 Import Auto Service to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at Import Auto Service 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 Import Auto Service are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 6540 Edsall Rd or give us a call at 703-569-2332 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 Alexandria 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 Import Auto Service at 6540 Edsall Rd for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance

Drivers in Alexandria come to Import Auto Service to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At Import Auto Service we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at Import Auto Service to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call Import Auto Service at 703-569-2332 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 Alexandria come to Import Auto Service 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 Import Auto Service 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 703-569-2332 or stop by our auto repair shop at 6540 Edsall Rd to set up an appointment.

Sway Bars: At Import Auto Service we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in Alexandria 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 Import Auto Service in Alexandria 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 Import Auto Service every day. Call Import Auto Service at 703-569-2332 or stop by our auto repair shop in Alexandria 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 Import Auto Service 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 Import Auto Service we know driving enthusiasts in Alexandria demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Alexandria 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 Import Auto Service 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 Import Auto Service at 703-569-2332 and let's talk wheelie bars.

    I have been a loyal customer of Import Auto Service for more than a decade. They are professional, responsive, courteous, and, most importantly, honest. Their work is of the highest quality and I have also found their service charges to be significantly lower than their competitors. I would strongly encourage anyone to get an estimate from the professionals at Import Auto before they decide to have work done by someone else. I have never been disappointed and what I value most, as a military veteran, is their integrity and and commitment to service excellence.

    These guys know European Autos. I found them using the Open Bay app. If I hadn't used it, I'm not sure I would have found them otherwise. I needed an oil change for my Audi, and the dealer didn't have any openings for almost 45 days! I needed someone who worked exclusively on German or European automobiles and these guys fit the bill. All the other patrons I met there were there for service on their Mercedes, BMW, Audi or Volkswagen. Some had been loyal customers for some time. Based on my experience, I will be back.

    Absolutely awesome service! They got me in for routine maintenance on my vehicle. I was a little skeptical because it was in the back of a gas station, but the people were so friendly, did a great job and when I picked up my car they gave me gift bag with reusable shopping bag, mug, key chain and cloth to clean glasses. I was very impressed. Definitely going back here and recommending to all my friends!!

    I really love this place. I have been going since it opened. I had the hugest crush on the son of the owner and I would come in after class when I was in high school and tried to talk to him. Then he moved and I never saw him again. Oh yea, the work is good and they usually hook you up with a free car wash.
