High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Gurnee, 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 McClure's Garage & Towing to get the job done right.

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 Gurnee 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 McClure's Garage & Towing at 4409 Old Grand Ave for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

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 McClure's Garage & Towing 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.

Leaf Springs
Trust the auto repair mechanics at McClure's Garage & Towing 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 McClure's Garage & Towing are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 4409 Old Grand Ave or give us a call at 847-662-1050 to set up an appointment to get your new leaf springs installed fast.

Lift Kits
Got massive monster tires? Truck owners in Gurnee come to McClure's Garage & Towing 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 McClure's Garage & Towing 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 847-662-1050 or stop by our auto repair shop at 4409 Old Grand Ave to set up an appointment.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance
Drivers in Gurnee come to McClure's Garage & Towing to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At McClure's Garage & Towing we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at McClure's Garage & Towing to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call McClure's Garage & Towing at 847-662-1050 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.

Sway Bars
At McClure's Garage & Towing we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in Gurnee 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 McClure's Garage & Towing in Gurnee 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 McClure's Garage & Towing every day. Call McClure's Garage & Towing at 847-662-1050 or stop by our auto repair shop in Gurnee today.

Tie Rods
At McClure's Garage & Towing we know driving enthusiasts in Gurnee demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Gurnee 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 McClure's Garage & Towing 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 McClure's Garage & Towing at 847-662-1050 and let's talk wheelie bars.

The nicest guys! I've took my car due to a flat tire and was very pleased with promptness and very reasonable with pricing. Recently I took it in due to low pressure in one of my tires and they checked all of my tires and filled them up with air. Great customer service! I always refer people to McClures now! Thanks guys!

Haven't ever purchased tires before and really dreaded doing so. Told Matt, at McClure's, I needed help. He gave me 2 quotes, high and low end. I, then, did a lot of research locally, shopped Costco, also tried purchasing thru Amazon, and having someplace local install tires. McClure's was the best quote. I called Matt back on Friday, set appointment for 9am Monday. My son met me at McClure's at 9am. Matt said about an hour, son & I went out for breakfast, Matt called at 10:07, car was ready for pick up. Cost was below what was quoted. McClure's made what I expected to be a nightmare experience a very comfortable experience. They will be my go to garage for all car needs. Nice feeling to know I've found trustworthy people.
