SUSPENSION WORK

Ensuring your suspension is up to par is an important component of a well-maintained vehicle. But you shouldn't trust your suspension work to just anyone! Skinner's Automotive offers affordable services that are hassle-free and reliable every time. Contact us at 610-833-1200 or send us an email for more details!

Our Suspension services include:

Air Spring
Air suspension is used in place of conventional steel springs in heavy vehicle applications such as buses and trucks. It is broadly used on semi-trailers. The purpose of air suspension is to provide a smooth, constant ride quality. Modern electronically controlled systems almost always feature self-leveling along with raising and lowering functions. Although traditionally called air bags or air bellows, the correct term is air spring (although these terms are also used to describe just the rubber bellows element with its end plates). Trust the experts at Skinner's Automotive when your truck's air bag suspension needs service, repair, or replacement. Call us at 610-833-1200 to schedule an appointment.

Equalizers
Suspension equalizers are an effective aftermarket innovation for rear leaf suspensions. The equalizers are designed to aid in the carrying ability of your truck. Equalizers have the following advantages: fuel economy, increased safety, increased power, reduced tire wear, improved steering, and improved braking.

Most equalizer kits include U-bolts, Equalizer Bars, Shackle Plates, Greasable Bolts, Rollers, Spring Washers, Washers, U-bolt Plates, and Nylon Locking Nuts. For all your suspension equalizer needs, visit or call Skinner's Automotive in Crum Lynne, PA 19022 today.

Hangers
Hangers are an effective way to enhance your truck's driving stability, handling, and suspension response. Hangers lower your truck's center of gravity, protecting it from rollovers in turns and corners and help you modify your truck's ground clearance. Whether you want to lower or raise your truck using hangers, call 610-833-1200 or visit Skinner's Automotive today.

Shocks
Shock absorbers are mechanical devices designed to smooth out shock impulses, thus reducing the effects of traveling over rough roads. Shocks convert kinetic energy that is formed when a vehicle travels over rough ground into another form of energy.

With shocks, you will be able to take your truck to places you never thought possible. Shocks work together with springs (they damp spring oscillations) to give your truck the best overall performance and the ability to carry the maximum load. For all your shock servicing, shock repairs and shock replacement needs, call or visit Skinner's Automotive today.

Torque Arms & Walking Beams
A torque arm is a metal arm attached between a drive axle and the vehicle's frame. Torque arms prevent axle rotation in hub motors. It prevents the wheels from trying to rotate the axle relative to the vehicle's frame under acceleration (or in the opposite direction during braking).

A walking beam is an oscillating lever that pivots on a central axis and uses internal cam technology to transmit linear stroke in two directions (produces a reciprocating or reversible motion).

For all your torque arm and walking beam servicing needs, visit Skinner's Automotive in Crum Lynne, PA 19022.

  • Totally lost my brakes. Called John Skinner. Got it right in. Brake line had rusted through. Skinner's able crew replaced the line...not easy on a 22 year old Honda, and back on the road again in no time. Now that is service!
    -George M.

  • I dropped my car off in the morning before work. Papers, pens and envelopes available to fill out a request and drop my key off since I was there prior to them opening. I requested that my car be done by lunch time if possible. Sure enough, my inspection was complete by the time I was done with lunch. Check out/paying was very quick and easy. Every one was extremely friendly. Overall I was very happy with my experience and would definitely return to Skinner's in the future.

  • Friendly, courteous, professional. Dealing with out of state vehicle, John and Melissa were great!
    -Charles R.

  • I could go to several service/repair shops between my home and Crum Lynne, but I chose Skinner's. Good people, good service, fair prices, always go the extra step. Just added a new vehicle to our family's fleet and that vehicle will go there as well. John and Melissa appreciate my business, and I in turn appreciate their friendship as well as their workmanship.
    -Stuart D.

  • I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my recent experience with Skinner's. I brought my car in for inspection and emissions about 9:00 am on a weekday. They asked if I needed a ride home (which at the dealer's they never asked me)! I was quite impressed with this. I told John some of my concerns and he said he'd check it out. He called me about 12:00 pm and told me what he found. It was a good amount of work, but I love my CR-V, so it was worth it. John also asked me if I wanted my headlights cleaned (the dealer said he'd need to replace the entire headlight to fix the oxidation problem so common in vehicles these days). I took John up on his offer and was WOWED when I picked the car up about 5:00 pm. What a huge difference - he has some magic potion, I guess. I met with Melissa to pay for the work and found out that we had graduated in the same class! What a small world. From now on, I won't go anywhere but Skinner's for all my vehicles. Great job!!!

  • Went in for an inspection and oil change and John's crew found a broken motor mount and bad master cylinder. Everything fixed the same day. Now that is service! One very happy customer.
