Factory suspension is great for most drivers; but for some looking for that bit of extra stiffness and control; upgrades are a must. This Cobra has now got Koni struts and end links from Steeda for better handling.
The owner of this brand new 2016 Denali pickup came by to order up a ReadyLIft leveling kit for up front; and a Firestone Ride Rite air spring kit for the rear. An alignment was performed after installing the leveling kit to verify nothing was off and the valves to inflate the rear bags are neatly attached to a bracket on the rear hitch bar.
Customer brought in this beautiful ’65 Mustang that he recently purchased for concerns in relation to hearing what sounded like gravel in the front of the car. Discovered some loose front wheel bearings and brake pad shift were to blame. Currently remedying these issues and we should have it back on the road again soon!
We received this beautiful 1951 Ford Panel this morning. She was towed in last night because the front airbag suspension would not inflate. After a thorough inspection we found one of the compressor solenoid vent valves was stuck open. We disassembled the solenoid, cleaned up the valve and reassembled it, and up, up, and away she went. Once we had the system operational again, we found a few other items needing some attention. We noticed the compressors would not turn off, after the system pressure reaching 180 PSI we decided to shut it down before the bomb went off. We found the pressure switch stuck closed not allowing the system to turn off once maximum pressure was achieved. To finish it off, the rocker switches used to control the ride height were a getting sticky so we’re replacing those while we’re at it. After a little TLC this rig is ready to get back on the road and have some fun in the sun.
This Mach 1 was here recently for front suspension upgrades; and now today it came in for a torque arm installation. This essentially turns a four link suspension setup which the vehicle comes with into a three link suspension removing 25 pounds and stiffening up the rear suspension providing better control.
