High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in St. Petersburg, 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 American Transmission & Air to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at American Transmission & Air 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 American Transmission & Air are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 3601 Tyrone Blvd N or give us a call at 727-344-5900 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 St. Petersburg 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 American Transmission & Air at 3601 Tyrone Blvd N for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance

Drivers in St. Petersburg come to American Transmission & Air to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At American Transmission & Air we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at American Transmission & Air to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call American Transmission & Air at 727-344-5900 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 St. Petersburg come to American Transmission & Air 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.

Sway Bars: At American Transmission & Air we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in St. Petersburg 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 American Transmission & Air in St. Petersburg 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 American Transmission & Air every day. Call American Transmission & Air at 727-344-5900 or stop by our auto repair shop in St. Petersburg 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 American Transmission & Air 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 American Transmission & Air we know driving enthusiasts in St. Petersburg demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on St. Petersburg 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 American Transmission & Air 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 American Transmission & Air at 727-344-5900 and let's talk wheelie bars.

TESTIMONIALS

I brought my Cadillac in thinking I had to have the transmission replaced. The dealer said it would be $4000 so I brought it in to see what they could do for me. Dan not only walked me thru all of the options, he diagnosed it for free. After inspecting it he said he could repair it instead of rebuilding it for only $460! Three months later, and my car runs great! Thank you so much!

HONEST staff !!!! I'll take my Jeep here any day over anyone else. They were very open and honest about what I didn't need to spend money on to get done that another auto shop told me was pertinent.

They have always been good to me. They have been working on my 2 cars for a few years now . Quick and reasonable. I would recommend them and I do. Have had no problems with anything they have done yet. They got me out of a major bind this week and I want to thank them again! Good mechanics that you can trust are hard to find. And I think I found some working here.

Fair & Honest Place, These guys saved me a bundle, My truck transmission was slipping, so I took it to a few other shops first, They both wanted to replace the transmission, for way more than I could afford. A friend of mine told me about this place. So I Figured lets try one more store, cause I was thinking of trading it in, I am so glad I tried here, they took care of it, and saved me a whole bunch of cash. It didn't need a new transmission after all. Just an honest mechanic, and I didn't really want a monthly payment again neither... It's been over a month now, and all is working great. Thanks you guys ROCK
