Our Suspension services include:
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 Pro Tech Tire & Auto when your truck's air bag suspension needs service, repair, or replacement. Call us at 518-477-5110 to schedule an appointment.
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 Pro Tech Tire & Auto in East Greenbush, NY 12061 today.
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 518-477-5110 or visit Pro Tech Tire & Auto today.
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 Pro Tech Tire & Auto 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 Pro Tech Tire & Auto in East Greenbush, NY 12061.

I brought my car to Pro Tech at the recommendation of my now retired former mechanic. It is stressful going to a new place for the first time, not knowing if you will be in good, trustworthy hands, but the owner John immediately put my mind at ease. I watched customers come in and out on my drop-off and pick-up visits and noticed that he remembered each of their names and their issue, even with dozens of cars in queue. Genuine and honest, I can't say enough about how disarming my encounter was. It was good to leave my vehicle in their hands. I got it back at a fair rate, with everything taken care of that needed to be. They checked through everything and made sure I was fully aware of anything that may be an issue now or in the future and took care of it all for me. I am thrilled with how my vehicle runs after leaving it with Pro Tech and will undoubtedly be returning with any future maintenance as well as suggesting it to others.
