Suspension, Huntersville, NC

High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Huntersville, 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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at Auto Specialties of Lake Norman 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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 100 Center Ln or give us a call at 704-201-7334 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 Huntersville 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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman at 100 Center Ln for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance

Drivers in Huntersville come to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At Auto Specialties of Lake Norman we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at Auto Specialties of Lake Norman to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call Auto Specialties of Lake Norman at 704-201-7334 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 Huntersville come to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman 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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman 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 704-201-7334 or stop by our auto repair shop at 100 Center Ln to set up an appointment.

Sway Bars: At Auto Specialties of Lake Norman we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in Huntersville 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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman in Huntersville 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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman every day. Call Auto Specialties of Lake Norman at 704-201-7334 or stop by our auto repair shop in Huntersville 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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman 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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman we know driving enthusiasts in Huntersville demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Huntersville 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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman 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 Auto Specialties of Lake Norman at 704-201-7334 and let's talk wheelie bars.


What Our Customers Are Saying

Had a difficult electrical issue with my car, took it by auto specialists and they had it fixed the same day. Great mechanic shop.

I was in Lowes Hardware the other day when I ran into a guy with an Auto Specialties t-shirt. Not wanting to waste his time I asked the gentleman if he had a few minutes to spare. Within a few minutes of speaking with him I was convinced he had a wealth of knowledge about my truck. On Monday I decided to take off work and drove down to Huntersville to see if he could help me with my truck. Within a few hours he called me and said my truck was fixed. I'm not big on reviews but I feel my experience was so good I needed to tell more people about this hidden gem.

Great facility, great customer service. Have taken my cars here for the past few years. Clean shop with friendly staff. Have gone to a few different places for auto inspection in the past, this place is where I am staying. Thank you gentlemen

Once again, Bert and his team have taken great care of my family! My son's transmission was acting up, and he got me right in on short notice in order to check it out. My son was in and out in no time. I've been taking our automobiles to another place for over 20 years, but it's time to move our business to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman. Well done, Bert! Five stars!

reviewicon

Bert and his boys at Auto Specialties of LKN were terrific with my 2008 X5 with over 100,000 miles. I had a front end noise that resulted in replacing the front struts and left axle, and when that didn't solve the problem they dug in and found the culprit. They're problem solvers! Thanks guys.

reviewicon

Great experience. I had previously received a couple different quotes from other companies that seemed unusually high. Bert gave me a very reasonable quote on the repair. While I had been told by others that would need 1-2 days to fix, ASLN was able to complete in one day. was nice to have the loner car to use during that time. Very happy with service. would certainly recommend. Thank you.

Burt and his staff always go above and beyond. They explain every repair detail to you. They are friendly, courteous and do excellent work for a reasonable price. I have to say I was also impressed with their clean and comfortable "waiting area". I highly recommend Auto Specialties of Lake Norman to anyone and everyone!

This morning, I drove 20 minutes past 4-5 auto shops to come to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman because I read such positive reviews. I have to tell you this was the best decision! The past 3 weeks I was having to jump start my car multiple times a day, and believed it was battery. I got a new battery installed and still happening, so I thought it must be alternator. I arrived at Auto Specialties for 1st time and they QUICKLY diagnosed that it was ONLY a bolt missing from the battery connection. Thus he didn't charge me anything -- the trust and honesty of the owner was beyond impressive and earned my business for life!

reviewicon

I was treated with great customer service and was contacted promptly after leaving my vehicle to be looked over. I received a phone call and was given information on exactly how and when they would be able to get my car back in working order. I was given an extremely fair price and I was surprised by how quickly I could expect to have my car back. I have been in the Charlotte area for a little over a year and had still not found a reliable mechanic - I think I have found that in Auto Specialties of Lake Norman. Their customer service goes above what I have come to expect for my auto services.

My daughter lives in Charlotte and had some issues with her car. After going to a dealership, they gave her an estimate for repairs. We wanted a second opinion, and my nephew gave us Auto Specialties info. We called and spoke to Bert. My daughter took her car and we had it back in two days after they replaced valve cover gaskets and the ABS modulator for the brakes. Bert is very nice and honest, and his rates beat the dealership prices. We were amazed to get the car back so quickly, and they have earned our business for our daughter's car, who lives 2 1/2 hours away from us. They are wonderful!!

My daughter's AC started having problems today, and she has a beach trip planned. I told Bert, and he worked me in right away, even on a Friday. He spent time trouble shooting and figured out the problem. I was in and out in about 30 minutes. AC is cold and ready for the beach trip thanks to Bert. Great service!

reviewicon

I have been using this shop for a few months now and this is become my #1 go to place for repairs. They are professional, do what is right to fix your car. Price quotes are accurate. Most of all they are very honest and take time to show you what is wrong and fix it right the first time.

Bert and his team at Auto Specialties are fabulous. They are always prompt to respond to calls, courteous, and go out of their way to help. But most of all, I trust their opinion and the wonderful service they provide. I feel fortunate to have found them and I recommend them to anyone who is looking for car service.

I recently moved to the Charlotte area about a month ago. I experienced a problem with my car. Being new to the area I had no information on a repair facility. I called the dealer and they quoted an outrageous price to repair my car. I call Auto Specialties of Lake Norman and spoke with Bert. He was very professional and understanding and most helpful. I had my car towed to the location and in less than 5 hours he called to advise that my car was ready. Great service!

reviewicon

This shop is great - they do solid work and stand firmly behind everything they do. I have had a couple of major problems with my 2007 BMW 335i, and Bert and the team have gotten my car back on the road each time. They are more than fair with their charges and are great to work with. I feel so fortunate that a friend referred me to them!

reviewicon

Burt was great in being patient with us in dealing with my son's car, which blew the engine. He was gracious enough to diagnose it and not charge a storage fee while we made arrangements to have it towed and removed from his lot. Thank you!!

reviewicon

Thanks Bert for excellent customer service! I will recommend to all of my friends and be back for sure!!

reviewicon

Exceptional service! Stood by price even though job parts costed more than the original quote. Offer big dealer professionalism in a small shop environment with straight forward pricing.

reviewicon

We found Bert's shop while looking at reviews online and tried him out. We were very happy with the work that they did on my wife's 2003 BMW and have been back 3 more times and have saved hundreds of dollars with him as opposed to the BMW dealer. His work is great and has a great personality. My wife and I will continue to have them do our work. Bert is a great person.

reviewicon

Let's hear it for small shops! These guys are expert mechanics, they're honest, and they aren't interested in pressing you for work your vehicle doesn't need. They know that their phenomenal service will earn your trust and repeat business. I'm moving out of Huntersville for a new job in South Charlotte, but by God I'm going to drive to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman whenever I need a mechanic; I'm sold for life.

reviewicon

Top rate service every time. Bert has been servicing my vehicles for years and I wouldn't go anywhere else!

reviewicon

Burt and the rest of the guys were great. My oil pressure switch on my jeep was broke and he only charged me 320 for the all fix. He even fixed a hose for me for free. One place was gonna charge me 900 for the fix. These guys are honest and do great work. I would recommend this place to everyone.

reviewicon

Was looking for a place close to home for an inspection. Drove by and found Auto Specialties this morning. They got me right in and took care of it! Great customer service, no wait time, super easy and fast. Thanks for taking care of me!!

Performed complete brake service on my Dodge truck. Part I requested to have replaced,I was told no need to spend the extra money, unless I just wanted the item replace. Great value and quality work.

Outstanding work and completed in a very timely manner. Fixed my van prior to making a 1400 mile round trip. Very pleased! I highly recommend Bert and the guys to everyone I know needing vehicle maintenance and repair.

reviewicon

Bert is absolutely amazing and he always quickly resolves my automotive problems. I have taken my Infiniti to Bert several times and he quickly repairs my car at a fraction of the price the dealer is asking. I wouldn't take my baby to anyone else in NC. Thanks to the team at Auto Specialties of LN for looking out for my car and my pocket book. You guys are so awesome!!!!
