Suspension

High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Vista, 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 North County Import Specialist to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at North County Import Specialist 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 North County Import Specialist are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 1215 N Melrose Dr Suite A or give us a call at 760-945-0266 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 Vista 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 North County Import Specialist at 1215 N Melrose Dr Suite A for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance

Drivers in Vista come to North County Import Specialist to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At North County Import Specialist we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at North County Import Specialist to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call North County Import Specialist at 760-945-0266 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 Vista come to North County Import Specialist 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 North County Import Specialist 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 760-945-0266 or stop by our auto repair shop at 1215 N Melrose Dr Suite A to set up an appointment.

Sway Bars: At North County Import Specialist we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in Vista 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 North County Import Specialist in Vista 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 North County Import Specialist every day. Call North County Import Specialist at 760-945-0266 or stop by our auto repair shop in Vista 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 North County Import Specialist 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 North County Import Specialist we know driving enthusiasts in Vista demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Vista 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 North County Import Specialist 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 North County Import Specialist at 760-945-0266 and let's talk wheelie bars.

  • I trust Glen with my car and cash! He's straight forward and honest about needed repairs without upselling, and his prices are fair. I always leave North County Imports with peace of mind that my car is at its best.

  • I knew that when I met Glenn that I could trust him, not only as an honest person but a qualified mechanic. He has a wall of industry certificates to show his formal training and years of experience to complement that.

  • I'm glad I found NCIS. For years I've been using the car dealership for my car's service, but no more! This was my third visit and each time Glenn and his crew did a great job. There is no pressuring to sell. Very low key, honest service.

  • Glenn and his group are an unbelievably honest and thorough group of mechanics. I took my car to Nissan slash Infiniti in Oceanside and was told I needed Brakes in the rear and brake fluid changed. I took it to Glen who is my regular mechanic and he said the brakes in the rear we're fine and the brake fluid had been flushed and added about seven thousand miles ago. The charge for this information - $0.
    reviewicon

  • I tried to save money and not take Glens advice. Mistake. Ended up paying more. I love having a mechanic that I trust! He's always the one I'll take my car too.
