Suspension, Tulsa, OK

High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Tulsa, 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 Alternative Automotive to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at Alternative Automotive 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 Alternative Automotive are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 5935 E 15th St or give us a call at 918-832-7740 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 Tulsa 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 Alternative Automotive at 5935 E 15th St for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance

Drivers in Tulsa come to Alternative Automotive to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At Alternative Automotive we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at Alternative Automotive to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call Alternative Automotive at 918-832-7740 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 Tulsa come to Alternative Automotive 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 Alternative Automotive 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 918-832-7740 or stop by our auto repair shop at 5935 E 15th St to set up an appointment.

Sway Bars: At Alternative Automotive we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in Tulsa 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 Alternative Automotive in Tulsa 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 Alternative Automotive every day. Call Alternative Automotive at 918-832-7740 or stop by our auto repair shop in Tulsa 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 Alternative Automotive 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 Alternative Automotive we know driving enthusiasts in Tulsa demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Tulsa 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 Alternative Automotive 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 Alternative Automotive at 918-832-7740 and let's talk wheelie bars.


What Our Customers Are Saying

I've been going to alternative automotive for 20 years. They have great service and operate with integrity!

reviewicon

Not a better mechanic anywhere. Period. And the best thing of all, Mike is as honest as a summer day is long. He will NEVER sell you a service or part that your vehicle genuinely doesn't need. He will even offer a cheaper idea for you if you're in a pinch to help. I own 5 cars and no one but Mike touches them. -And, I have sent many people to him and everyone of them will say the same as me.

reviewicon

Mike and his staff are top notch. They are professional, communicate the status of your vehicle, and are honest. I will be bringing my Mazda back to Mike and his crew from now on.

Best experience! Explains everything even if I don?t understand. :-) Treats my car likes it was his wife?s!

reviewicon

Mike got me in quickly for a rattling noise, took time to explain the process to diagnose before I left my car for the day, called me by 2pm to let me know the car was fixed and took time again on the back end to explain the problem and the fix. All for an incredibly reasonable expense. This shop was efficient, courteous and highly knowledgeable. Everything you need when your sole source for getting around is broken. I strongly recommend them!

reviewicon

Mike and Karen are the best! We had a car that had been sitting a while that was going to be my son's first car so we had them check it out after my parents recommended them. They told us all the urgent needs and what could wait, and then fixed what was needed at a very reasonable price. Mike even spent 45 minutes showing my son and I everything about the car and how it works and tips a new driver needs to know. We learned so much! He is very knowledgeable about cars and is excited to educate others, always willing to explain why and answer my questions. Mike and Karen are also people of character who love the Lord and are quick to make things right if something seems like it isn't. We now trust them completely with all our vehicles and we are so thankful to have an honest and experienced mechanic to take care of us!

My mother had an issue with her 2009 Ford V8 Sport Trac jerking as it was driving on the highway. She took it to a dealership that wanted to replace the transmission for 6800 dollars. We heard about Mike at Alternative Automotive and took the vehicle to him. Based on his experience, he suspected right away that the truck did not need a new transmission, but merely a tune up! He tuned it up and even did a BG transmission service. Mike saved us thousands of dollars and for that we are grateful!! The truck runs great. Found a new mechanic to rely on with Alternative Automotive.

reviewicon

Mike is awesome! I took my car to him after having it with another mechanic for 9 weeks without getting it fixed. Mike had it working very quickly. I would highly recommend Alternative Automotive

I am so happy that I found a reliable and professional auto repair shop in Tulsa. I was very pleased with the work done on my vehicle at Alternative Automotive. They are very honest and professional and the cost was lower than I would have paid at a dealership. I will definitely return for future jobs on our vehicles.

From the minute you walk into their shop, Mike and Karen will make sure you get the best treatment for both you and your car. They are very knowledgeable, and the work is second to none.

reviewicon

Came in to replace a door latch on an 02 Mustang. Mike quickly diagnosed that there was in issue with the hinge too, and replacing just the latch would not be a permanent fix. Excellent service, in and out in one day. Less expensive than a dealership too. Feels great knowing I now have a relationship with a great mechanic who can do anything I need to my Ford.
