Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at Rillito Automotive 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 Rillito Automotive are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 320 W Rillito St or give us a call at 520-623-5260 to set up an appointment to get your new leaf springs installed fast.
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 Tucson 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 Rillito Automotive at 320 W Rillito St 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 Rillito Automotive 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.
At Rillito Automotive we know driving enthusiasts in Tucson demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Tucson 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.
These simple anti-roll devices look like casters connected to the rear bumper by long bars of flexible Chromoly tubing. Let Rillito Automotive 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 Rillito Automotive at 520-623-5260 and let's talk wheelie bars.
What People Say About Us
Love these guys! They are so efficient as well as honest and trustworthy. Highly recommend!
Rillito is my go to mechanics shop. They KNOW what they're doing, and they love their work. More importantly, I love their work, customer service, and Saturday hours. They have money saving tips, they check out used cars I've considered buying and saved me from some disasters! They also do on-site alignments and U-haul rentals. Did I mention they're also a bunch of really nice guys, too?
I have used Rillito for several years and found them outstanding. I feel they are an honest and give a straight deal as to what you need or don't need done on your car. I have enough confidence in them that my entire family use them. It is nice to know they are not trying to take advantage of their customers especially when you may not know a lot about the inner working of your vehicles now a days.
This shop rocks, they have 8 lifts, the waiting area is comfortable, and they do only top quality work. When I called in about both my rear and sliding doors locking up on my Chevy Astro, Tony was very understanding and offered an honest quote. When I came to pick it up (same day I might add) I couldn't help but notice they were working on a bright yellow Lotus. Jason my tech went above and beyond making sure the workmanship made the operation buttery smooth. I will definitely be returning!
We were on a road trip back from California to Texas and ran something over that busted our gas tank and exhaust pipe. Not being from here, we had no idea what to do. A kind worker found us a hotel and drove us there. Such hospitality, made a terrible event a little better.
Tony services all of our vehicles and does a great job!
Give him a call for all your automotive needs.
Tony is a great guy a mechanic you can trust! Prices that won?t make you go broke but still keep you on the road.
I have a 1978 Chevy Van. It had a vibration in the rear end. We thought It was the driveshaft. Took it in to have him pull it out and take a look. While they were looking they found a few other things that needed to be fixed. This was on a Friday. We got there at 11 am. By 330 they had everything done. I was expecting a large bill. I was shocked because he not only did a Fast job but a great one. And he even took a little off. More than a little. Now were ready to go back down to Guaymas Mexico and start our adventures of sailing around the Sea Of Cortez. Thanks Tony you Rock. Come down anytime and go sailing with us.
Rillito did an excellent job on my trucks alignment. I am very picky and hard to please and rarely let anyone work on my vehicles. This job stands out as one of the very few alignments that I am 100% happy with.
