Shock absorbers, more commonly termed shocks, are the parts of a car that help create a smoother ride for the vehicle. When a vehicle is riding down the road there are often bumps that it will come in contact with. Shock absorbers allow the vehicle to smoothly travel over these bumps without there being a rough force applied to the vehicle. In a sense, the shock absorbers work as springs that allow the tires of the vehicle to move freely with the bumps while the vehicle essentially remains unaffected by the bumps, and thus remains still.

Most of the manufacturers offer a lifetime warranty to the original purchaser on their products. We have excellent relationships with these suppliers and can facilitate any warranty and sending it in claims. Rather than removing the part from the car (leaving it un-driveable), most people purchase the replacement with the understanding that they’ll be refunded once the manufacturer approves the warranty and sends us a new part. It is always your option to deal with the manufacturer direct instead.

Excessive heat can cause resins in your brake pad to vaporize or "outgas." As the brake pad wears, the used friction material turns into a fine dust. This boundary layer of heat, gas and dust builds up between the pad and rotor surfaces and inhibits performance. Here’s where Power Slot’s slotted brake rotors make a big difference.
Power Slot’s exclusive Vac-U-Slots are machined into the rotor and help evacuate gasses and dust, shed heat, and keep the brake pad surface clean. And in wet, raining conditions, our Vac-U-Slot helps push water off the braking surface for better stopping power.

Hawk Performance’s leading-edge brake friction technology is proven everyday in severe-duty aerospace, military, commercial truck fleet, motorsports and performance street brake applications. Put the power in the brake pedal and specify Hawk Performance disc brake pads.

Q. What brand should I get?
A. We sell all the quality brands so that ultimately leaves the choice to you. Our goal is to provide enough information for you to choose the optimum performing suspension parts for your driving needs. In general, you get what you pay for. On shocks/struts, the ability to adjust damping (stiffness) or ride height comes with a substantial additional price and you have to decide if you’ll be taking advantage of these features. On springs, lowering effects vary and you pay a little more for a progressive spring rate that gets stiffer as the suspension is compressed further.
Q. How far can I lower my car?
A. Most cars it’s 30mm to 50mm.(One to two inches). We only sell the most reputable manufacturers to ensure safe, reliable products that won’t damage other suspension components. Some manufacturers have listings for "race" springs which may be lower, harsher riding, and harder on the vehicles other components.
Q. Do I need camber kits if I lower my car?
A. Whenever you lower a car with shorter springs, it creates negative camber. This has some benefits for handling but can cause the tires to wear more towards the inside instead of right down the middle. Many cars do not have enough adjustment to return the camber to original factory specifications. On most cars, if the lowering effect is 25mm to 35mm, and you keep the tires well rotated, you should get the full life expectancy of the tires even with the negative camber. Otherwise camber adjustment kits can be purchased for many applications that make it possible to adjust the camber closer to the original specifications.
