Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair

Rely on Auto Performance Repair & Customs in Easley, SC 29640 to provide quality care for your vehicle's undercarriage. Stop by our shop to see how we can help you or call 864-850-0600 for more information.

To keep your vehicle running at peak performance, we provide undercar services that include:

Alignment
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Auto Performance Repair & Customs.

Anti-Lock Brakes
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts. At Auto Performance Repair & Customs, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.

Brakes
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction). In short, a brake inhibits your car's motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be able to stop the car. If your vehicle's brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on. Brake experts at Auto Performance Repair & Customs can work on your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.

Brake System Flush
Brake fluid is hygroscopic (it absorbs moisture). The absorbed moisture lowers the fluid's boiling point. It also corrodes the lines and cylinders. With the lowered boiling point, the brake fluid could boil during braking which makes you lose braking ability. Although this is an extreme scenario, it does happen in heavy braking. To reduce the effects of the absorbed moisture, auto manufacturers recommend that you have a brake flush done periodically. A brake system flush involves the replacement of used and contaminated fluid with fresh fluid. With Auto Performance Repair & Customs's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 864-850-0600 or visit Auto Performance Repair & Customs today.

Chassis
A chassis is the car's internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car's chassis checked for defects. At Auto Performance Repair & Customs, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.

Differentials
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact Auto Performance Repair & Customs today for differentials examination and servicing.

Differential Flush
The differential is a car part that compensates for the difference in travel distance between the inner wheels and outer wheels when the vehicle is turning. Due to the differential's position in most non-four-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicles (located at the rear and under the car), it does not get any of the star treatment the engine gets. The one thing that every car owner needs to know is that failure of the differential will mean failure of the car. To save the differential from failure, you need to have differential fluid changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Changing the oil on the differential is as important as changing the car's engine oil. Although checking and changing differential oil is pretty easy, you need to visit an auto shop to get a comprehensive differential flush. For differential flush services, visit or call Auto Performance Repair & Customs in Easley, SC 29640 today.

Exhaust
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better - for you, your car, and the environment. Auto Performance Repair & Customs has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.

Driveline
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at Auto Performance Repair & Customs, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Tires
As tires get older, they lose traction and deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a better performing vehicle, you need to make sure the tires are in good condition. For all your tire needs, contact Auto Performance Repair & Customs today.

Shocks
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit Auto Performance Repair & Customs today.

Struts
Much like a shock absorber (shocks), your car's struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over a road's surface. By absorbing the shock of the road, struts allow passengers to ride in a car without constant and uncomfortable motion. Struts work a bit differently than shocks in that they provide structural support for your car's suspension. This means that struts support your car's weight, unlike shocks which only regulate the speed at which the weight is transferred. Struts usually last around 50,000 or 60,000 miles. This is simply because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorate over time. Call Auto Performance Repair & Customs at 864-850-0600 if you have questions about the struts on your car. Our expert technicians will diagnose any problems and help you make an informed decision about repairs.

Testimonials

  • I purchased a 1977 El Camino a few years ago, and it needed some attention to get it running smoothly again. It also needed a face-lift, so I stopped in at Auto Performance to see what they had to say. Rick was very helpful and provided the knowledge necessary to get the vehicle looking and running great! I am very pleased with their efforts at Auto Performance, especially the subtle ideas to improve the look and driving of my vehicle. Rick was very upfront with all the necessary improvements and costs involved. I highly recommend Rick and his team for your car needs. Thanks guys.

  • My second visit to this shop. First one was for a repair to my tailgate which they repaired very professionally and I was impressed. However, I didn't know they also did lube and oil change until today. Great price for synthetic oil. I will be back whenever I need any type of vehicle service.
    -Wes

  • Rick and his team did an excellent job on replacing the exhaust system on our 2009 Mustang. There were a couple of questions that came up and Rick was quick to call and get the go ahead on the resolution to the issues. He was able to complete the work with in the short time frame that we had. Excellent work, Great atmosphere, customer service is heads above what most places provide today. We will return for many more enhancements to the vehicle.
    -Terry S.

  • This is my very first review I have ever written in my life so that alone says something about this place. One word describes this place best " flawless". My very first visit to Ricks shop and it was like I've known them for years. Remarkable knowledge about vehicles. He has a mixture of old school tech's with just enough new school technology to lap the competition twice! If you want a repair shop that is for the people this is your place. Tight on budget but need the job done right? This is your place. I have done my own repairs since I was 13 years old...I don't trust anyone with my vehicles until I came to this place!!! I recommend this shop to everyone! They fix absolutely everything! One stop shop, in and you are out the door blink and you would have missed something. This will become my families number 1 shop for generations to come. If you have never been here dont miss out. Nobody and I mean nobody has beaten his work or prices.
    -Charles W.

  • I made the drive up from Greenwood to Rick's shop in Easley because I know I can trust him and his crew to do reliable work at a reasonable price. My Malibu has quite a few miles on it, but the Auto Performance team treated it--and me--like we were the most valuable project on their list. Thanks, guys!

  • I can't say enough wonderful things about Rick. He and his crew do a fanrtastic job. Rick takes the time to explain everything he is going to do. He called me gave me quotes before he did any work. Being a single mom and my son in college that meant a lot. He has worked on my son's car now a couple of times and has it running great! Check with Rick and get a quote! You will not regret it!
