High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Alsip, 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 G & L Automotive II to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at G & L Automotive II 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 G & L Automotive II are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 12735 S Pulaski Rd or give us a call at 708-385-3626 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 Alsip 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 G & L Automotive II at 12735 S Pulaski Rd 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 G & L Automotive II 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 G & L Automotive II we know driving enthusiasts in Alsip demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Alsip 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 G & L Automotive II 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 G & L Automotive II at 708-385-3626 and let's talk wheelie bars.


What Our Customers Are Saying

I been going to G & L Automotive since I got my first car in 2003. They been good to me ever since. They always get it done right the first time weather if its replacing the brakes, fixing a coolant leak, or doing a simple oil change. I even bought a used car off them in 2005 and still have the car today. They won a customer for life.

I had a great first experience at G and L. I contacted for appointment on Saturday and was able to bring the car in on Monday. They diagnosed the problem with my exhaust system quickly and gave me a clear idea of the options. They were able to get the necessary parts from a nearby supplier and had be on my way in a little over an hour. The final price was exactly as estimated, and the personnel were a pleasure to deal with.

Has worked on my entire families cars for years and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Honest, reliable service. I went to one of those quick lube chain places for an oil change thinking it was too small time to bother G&L. That won't happen again. I went to 2 different quick lube places and both times ended up having to come and get it redone and the bottom of my car cleaned of all the spilled oil. Apparently they used pliers to put the filter on and it sprayed my car . Thanks to Bud my mechanic, he explained the importance of avoiding the chains (the cheaper oil used, the rush to make numbers, etc). And G&L ends up replacing engines on one of the chains. They call him when they run into a problem. Moral of the story Isn't about oil changes. It's about honesty and consistency and you will find that here.

I am an out of towner and was looking for a good shop to fix my car, I asked around at my work and it was suggested that I visit George at G&L. So I brought my car into the shop and explained to George that my steering wheel was shaking when I hit the brakes. George said he would take a look at it, before he looked at it he thought it might be the rotors causing the problem. So I gave him my keys and went to lunch. About an hour later George called up told me the front brakes and rotors need to be changed. The price I ended up paying was good and a relief because I just dropped a bunch of cash on my wive's car back home. George had my car back to me by the end of the day, the shaking stopped and I noticed that my car drove a little smoother. I was really lucky to find these guys, George is very approachable and gives off a good vibe. I also feel better because I try to avoid national chains and spend locally if possible even though my shop back home is a chain.
