Suspension

High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Tampa, 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 Greg Bailey Automotive to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at Greg Bailey 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 Greg Bailey Automotive are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 3712 N Florida Ave or give us a call at 813-229-1265 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 Tampa 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 Greg Bailey Automotive at 3712 N Florida Ave for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance

Drivers in Tampa come to Greg Bailey Automotive to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At Greg Bailey Automotive we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at Greg Bailey Automotive to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call Greg Bailey Automotive at 813-229-1265 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

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 Greg Bailey 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 813-229-1265 or stop by our auto repair shop at 3712 N Florida Ave to set up an appointment.

Sway Bars: At Greg Bailey Automotive we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in Tampa 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 Greg Bailey Automotive in Tampa 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 Greg Bailey Automotive every day. Call Greg Bailey Automotive at 813-229-1265 or stop by our auto repair shop in Tampa 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 Greg Bailey 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 Greg Bailey Automotive we know driving enthusiasts in Tampa demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Tampa 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 Greg Bailey 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 Greg Bailey Automotive at 813-229-1265 and let's talk wheelie bars.

  • I find Greg to be a knowledgeable and straightforward guy with no inclination to rip off his customers. He offers a warranty on his work (inquire with him for specifics) and unlike other mechanics I have dealt with, he actually honors the warranty without a hassle or undue grief.

  • Greg has been the best mechanic ever! He has saved our cars by prolonging their lifespan since he was in high school, and so was I! My family has followed him from the downtown location to his present shop. He has done everything for our cars to include rebuilding the engines for my Mother's VW Bug a few times! Greg is now working on my daughter's Mazda, keeping it going. He is very honest and a superb artisan. Greg loves what he does! Overall, he is a good man and a decent person who has an intact moral compass. So many places will rip you off. With Greg this has never been the case...

  • Greg is the most straight forward honest mechanic in Tampa. I recommend him to all my friends with foreign cars, especially German makes. He keeps my 2006 VW Toureg going like new, always quick service for the best price in town. I have shopped around and no one beats his prices, from big jobs to an oil change. And he is very knowledgeable. He can figure out issues very quickly and get it done right the first time. Can't say enough good things about this man and his establishment. Thank you, Greg!!!
