Suspension

High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in El Cajon, 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 Caliber Auto Repair to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at Caliber Auto Repair 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 Caliber Auto Repair are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 1286 Fesler Street or give us a call at 619-966-9767 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 El Cajon 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 Caliber Auto Repair at 1286 Fesler Street for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance

Drivers in El Cajon come to Caliber Auto Repair to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At Caliber Auto Repair we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at Caliber Auto Repair to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call Caliber Auto Repair at 619-966-9767 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 El Cajon come to Caliber Auto Repair 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 Caliber Auto Repair 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 619-966-9767 or stop by our auto repair shop at 1286 Fesler Street to set up an appointment.

Sway Bars: At Caliber Auto Repair we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in El Cajon 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 Caliber Auto Repair in El Cajon 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 Caliber Auto Repair every day. Call Caliber Auto Repair at 619-966-9767 or stop by our auto repair shop in El Cajon 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 Caliber Auto Repair 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 Caliber Auto Repair we know driving enthusiasts in El Cajon demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on El Cajon 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 Caliber Auto Repair 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 Caliber Auto Repair at 619-966-9767 and let's talk wheelie bars.

    If you need honest mechanics, this is your place! I feel comfortable and at home with Jacob, Sabrina and the rest of the crew. Everyone is friendly and most of all you can trust that they won't rip you off with work your vehicle doesn't need. Come on out and give them a chance. You will never look back.

    Jacob and his team took great care of me. Had a tire sensor issue, they replaced and rotated a tire for me. Upon the rotation Jacob found that I had no wheel weights on my tire. He was kind enough to take care of the issue for me. Great service, great team and great prices!! Thank you Jacob for getting me back on the road safely. Thank you Sabrina for keeping me company while I wanted and making sure my vehicle was getting taken care of too!

    I usually do all my own automotive stuff, mostly because I've seen the aftermath of using cheap, bad mechanics. My oil plug was stopped at a random quick oil change shop and they didn't tell me, they just put blue Loctite on it and I only found this when I decided to do my own oil change. Trust is key, and Caliber is the only place I trust. The owner, Jacob, tells the truth and is fair in his pricing. What else do you want from your mechanic? I will always refer Caliber to anyone who needs work on their vehicle. Epic experience, a great digital assessment gets sent to you so you can see what they checked and what needs to be addressed. I brought it in for brakes and they told me it didn't need brakes, I've been to shops who would have sold me brakes, they aren't like that at Caliber. Thank you Jacob.

    One of the more pleasant experiences I've had with a auto mechanic. Wanted my 2002 Silverado brought back to life that was sitting for 1-2 years. I took it to a dealership and a few other places and was quoted enormous amounts and little explanations. However Caliber sent me a full diagnostic color-coded with urgent fixes and did it for about half the cost. They were fast, honest, and the owner even checks up with you after the work is done to make sure you are satisfied. Sabrina and Jacob were easy to work with. I've found a new spot to take my trucks and cars from now on. Thank you!

    I had Jacob and the gang at Caliber Automotive install a front end lift kit on my 2018 Ford F 250 super duty. The work was perfect and completed in a very timely manner. My truck was well cared for, not even a dirty fingerprint left behind. Being a mechanic my self I am very picky. For great work as well as fantastic customer care I absolutely recommend these guys. I am taking my truck back in for more work.

    My company uses Caliber so I thought I'd give them a try. The staff is so friendly and scheduling is always easy. I took my vehicle in a while back because i felt like it was loosing power, Jacob and his team diagnosed the issue and let me know that the issue should still be under warranty with the dealer. They fixed just enough for me to get my vehicle there safely. The staff is honest and always lets me know upfront what my charges will be and prioritizes what services I need for my car.

    When it comes to regular maintenance or any mechanical issues, I know I can trust the folks over at Caliber. They are efficient, skilled, and most importantly honest. I know I am not going to get a run-around and will leave feeling like my car has been in excellent hands. Would not take my Honda Fit anywhere else!
