Suspension

High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Wausau, 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 West Side Automotive Service to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at West Side Automotive 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 West Side Automotive Service are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 6815 Stewart Ave or give us a call at 715-842-0300 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 Wausau 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 West Side Automotive Service at 6815 Stewart Ave for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance

Drivers in Wausau come to West Side Automotive Service to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At West Side Automotive Service we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at West Side Automotive Service to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call West Side Automotive Service at 715-842-0300 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 Wausau come to West Side Automotive 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 West Side Automotive 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 715-842-0300 or stop by our auto repair shop at 6815 Stewart Ave to set up an appointment.

Sway Bars: At West Side Automotive Service we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in Wausau 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 West Side Automotive Service in Wausau 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 West Side Automotive Service every day. Call West Side Automotive Service at 715-842-0300 or stop by our auto repair shop in Wausau 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 West Side Automotive 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 West Side Automotive Service we know driving enthusiasts in Wausau demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Wausau 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 West Side Automotive 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 West Side Automotive Service at 715-842-0300 and let's talk wheelie bars.

What People Say About Us

  • reviewicon

    I've had Tim (ASE Master Technician) and Nate work on my vehicles and they've always done great work at reasonable prices. Before I recently traded my old Pontiac Vibe in to the dealer, I had these guys get everything in tip top condition and Kocourek gave me a really good price. When my son was up here visiting, the heat shield bracket to the muffler had come loose and was making a terrible noise. These guys knew exactly what it was, got it up on the lift and 10 minutes later, finished. $10 bucks. All without an appointment. I've seen big rigs in there, so they know what they're doing. Highly recommended.

    This is easily the best auto service within Marathon county, and I've been everywhere. The customer service is on par with a 5 star resort and hotel. Also when shopping around for the lowest price on a job or repair, this place always maintains the best price.

    I brought my Mercedes into West Side for the first time and they did a great job diagnosing and addressing my issue in a timely and professional manner. Staff is extremely accomodative and friendly as well as seemingly immensely knowledgeable. I no longer live in Wausau but if I did West Side Automotive would be my 'go to' shop for automotive-related repairs. Highly recommended.
