High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Thousand Oaks, 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 Shelley's Precision Auto Center to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at Shelley's Precision Auto Center 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 Shelley's Precision Auto Center are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 901 East Thousand Oaks Blvd or give us a call at 805-497-2818 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 Thousand Oaks 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 Shelley's Precision Auto Center at 901 East Thousand Oaks Blvd for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance

Drivers in Thousand Oaks come to Shelley's Precision Auto Center to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At Shelley's Precision Auto Center we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at Shelley's Precision Auto Center to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call Shelley's Precision Auto Center at 805-497-2818 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.

Truck owners in Thousand Oaks come to Shelley's Precision Auto Center 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 Shelley's Precision Auto Center to transform the look and function of your truck.

Sway Bars: At Shelley's Precision Auto Center we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in Thousand Oaks 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 Shelley's Precision Auto Center in Thousand Oaks 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 Shelley's Precision Auto Center every day. Call Shelley's Precision Auto Center at 805-497-2818 or stop by our auto repair shop in Thousand Oaks 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 Shelley's Precision Auto Center 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 Shelley's Precision Auto Center we know driving enthusiasts in Thousand Oaks demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Thousand Oaks 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 Shelley's Precision Auto Center 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 Shelley's Precision Auto Center at 805-497-2818 and let's talk wheelie bars.


What Our Customers Are Saying

reviewicon

Absolutely love Shelley's and I am a repeat and ongoing customer! I'm always looking for a place that I feel comfortable going to on my own without my fiance as I'm not mechanically savvy and this is it! Christy, who is at the front desk and keeps this place running is so warm and welcoming. She does her job well and is always moving whether it is answering phone calls or managing all the different keys and customers. She remembered me after my first visit! The mechanics here are trustworthy and do their job well. I've gotten two reasonably priced oil changes and also brought my car in for a tire repair and I'm very happy with all my interactions at Shelley's. I would suggest making an appointment or dropping off your car because this place IS BUSY. If you are doing a walk in expect to wait a couple of hours, but otherwise I will definitely be back for all my car related concerns!

Christy, who runs the front of the shop, is the best. I needed to get my car smog checked. The problem was I had a check engine light. Shelley's did a diagnosis and was able to clear the check engine, but the codes would still not pass. We were able to assess the problem that could have been $$$ in parts and labor for a catalytic converter, but there was an alternative to flush out the codes for an indefinite amount of miles. I checked once a week before work at Shelley's to see if it my car cleared. Every time, denied. Then my check engine light went on again! Hope was lost. I gave up going to Shelley's for months. Until today. When I got in my car and was heading to work the check engine light was off. I immediately went to Shelley's. The codes were clean! We ran the smog and passed. I am legit on the road again. Thanks for your persistence with me Shelley's! I'll be a lifetime customer.

Again and again, the people at Shelley's rock it! Had to get a car ready for a big 2500 mile trip to NC. Needed brakes, rotors, AC and general repairs. Is was a lot to do with the time constraints. But as always, the team pulled it off. We could never be more greatful and HIGHLY, and we mean HIGHLY recommend them. Their customer service is outstanding. Now if they could only get rid of those trees on TO Blvd. Can't tell you how many times we've blown by the driveway. But it's worth the u-turn for the best service in Thousand Oaks!

First of all, Christy is so sweet and gives that added touch to service. We have been going to Shelley's for a long time. They are very honest, reliable and cost efficient. I will never go any other place and will continue to refer my friends. Great job to all the employees at Shelley's!

By far the best automotive service we've experienced here in the Conejo Valley. From the minute we walk in the door and are greeted by Christy to the time we leave, the customer service, communication, and work done on our vehicles has been exceptional all the way. Paul and Jerry are always willing to talk if you have questions, they are honest in their recommendations and never pushy, their work is high quality, and we've always been able to get in for service in a timely manner. We've been using Shelley's for years now and highly recommend them.

Paul is a kind and honest guy! My car broke down 1,400 miles from home. The Ford dealer in Thousand Oaks quoted $1,100 for the repair. Paul charged me $130 for the work. You can take your car there confident that you will be treated well.
