Suspension

Suspension, Kelso, WA

High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Kelso, 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 Bob's Lil Car Hospital to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at Bob's Lil Car Hospital 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 Bob's Lil Car Hospital are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 1508 Westside Hwy or give us a call at 360-577-1187 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 Kelso 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 Bob's Lil Car Hospital at 1508 Westside Hwy for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance

Drivers in Kelso come to Bob's Lil Car Hospital to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At Bob's Lil Car Hospital we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at Bob's Lil Car Hospital to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call Bob's Lil Car Hospital at 360-577-1187 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 Kelso come to Bob's Lil Car Hospital 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 Bob's Lil Car Hospital 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 360-577-1187 or stop by our auto repair shop at 1508 Westside Hwy to set up an appointment.

Sway Bars: At Bob's Lil Car Hospital we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in Kelso 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 Bob's Lil Car Hospital in Kelso 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 Bob's Lil Car Hospital every day. Call Bob's Lil Car Hospital at 360-577-1187 or stop by our auto repair shop in Kelso 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 Bob's Lil Car Hospital 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 Bob's Lil Car Hospital we know driving enthusiasts in Kelso demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Kelso 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 Bob's Lil Car Hospital 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 Bob's Lil Car Hospital at 360-577-1187 and let's talk wheelie bars.

Testimonials

, 07/20/2020
My family and I were traveling from Port Angeles, WA to Salem, OR pulling our travel trailer. All of a sudden, while traveling on I5 our diesel truck showed low fuel and the service engine light turned on. We immediately took an exit that showed Chevron Diesel. We knew it just said 3/4 of a tank left, but thought maybe there's a leak and we need to check it out. Well, Chevron didn't even have fuel so I just turned at the stop light and pulled over. I went about checking things to see what could be the problem. When I couldn't figure it out I looked over and saw the sign Bob's Lil Car Hospital? staring back at me. God led me to park right next to them and I had no idea. They were very helpful from beginning to end. Offered to give me a ride to the nearest gas station as their diesel mechanic was at lunch to run the check engine light code. When mechanic was off lunch he was very helpful along with others that confirmed what he thought. It wasn't anything that required immediate attention. They gave me advice on what to do and how to monitor until we returned to home to CA from our 2 week trip up and down the coast. They were very cordial and more than delighted that all was okay and we could continue on our trip. If I lived close to them, they would be getting my business from here on out. They are awesome to work with and most importantly trustworthy. Two very important things when it comes to a mechanic shop. Thank you all for you help. We made it home safely and it is very much thanks to all of you.
