shocks & suspension repair

Shocks, Frontend Alignments & Suspension Systems

If you’re experiencing a shaky, rough ride in your car or truck, your shocks could be the problem. Bring your vehicle to Durango Muffler & Brake Automotive for the proper assessment and repairs. If you’ve had shocks installed recently but something still seems off, stop by for an alignment. Shocks installed without this crucial last step won’t be nearly as effective or comfortable. Our team of professional mechanics can also handle any repair involving your suspension system, and we offer frontend alignments, too. Call or contact us online to schedule an appointment for any of these services.

Durango Muffler & Brake Automotive offers a full range of diagnostic services for small and large vehicles. If you’re experiencing an unusual noise, shaky steering wheel, trouble starting, or any other unexplained problem with your vehicle, we can detect the cause. Our programmers, downloading devices, and other computer technology can be connected to your vehicle to uncover issues and pinpoint problems. Our experienced mechanics will also inspect and manually test your vehicle as needed. Together, we’ll be able to provide a diagnosis and schedule a service appointment in a short period of time.

brake service

Brake Systems

Brakes unavoidably wear out over time. How long they last is based on numerous factors, such as where you drive and how you brake. For this reason, it is necessary to service your brakes regularly.

We even provide a complimentary inspection with every service to make sure that any problem is addressed before it becomes a major concern.

Custom Trailer Hitches

At Durango Muffler & Brake Automotive, we build custom trailer hitches, so you can haul anything from a bicycle to a boat. Our professionals will assess the rear of your vehicle and go over the options that will fit your hauling needs. There are specific weight limitations depending on the size of your car or truck. We’ll let you know if it is safe to tow the item you have in mind.
