Brake repair can be costly and time-consuming, but at Clinton Alignment, we have the knowledge and experience to find ways to save money on brake repair. Our brake repair service includes pads, calipers, lines and hoses. You'll feel the difference a good brake repair can make the minute you get back in your car.

Our exhaust / muffler service includes testing and repairing your oxygen sensor, exhaust manifold, injection pump and more. We offer exhaust / muffler service for all car types.

  • Preventative Maintenance

    Preventative Maintenance

    Did you buy a new car that needs preventative maintenance? Many people don't realize that they don't have to go to their dealer for preventative maintenance. You can get preventative maintenance at any repair shop you choose, but you must document all your visits and repairs. At Clinton Alignment, we can take care of your preventative maintenance and provide detailed documentation. Keep your warranty valid while getting preventative maintenance at a friendly, local repair shop you trust.

  • Suspension Repair

    Suspension Repair

    If your car's suspension is starting to go, you'll notice it when you're driving. Cars that need steering and suspension repair will pull hard to one side when you're driving, shake at high speeds and brake unevenly. We specialize in suspension repair and all repairs to your car's undercarriage. Suspension repair can be tricky, and you shouldn't trust a mechanic who isn't experienced at it. We're one of the top suspension repair shops in the Clinton area. Our suspension repair service includes the struts, shocks, steering system and alignment.

  • Tire / Wheel Alignment

    Tire / Wheel Alignment

    You may not give much thought to your tire / wheel alignment, but it can make a big difference in your car's performance and safety. Improperly aligned wheels can cause your car to pull hard when you steer, waste gas, burn up your engine and more. If your steering wheel is shaking or your car feels wobbly, you probably need a tire / wheel alignment. At Clinton Alignment, tire / wheel alignment is our specialty. We use precision tools and tire / wheel alignment testing equipment to calibrate the perfect tire / wheel alignment for your car.

  • Tune-Ups


    Tune-ups are like checkups for your car. If you want to keep your car in top running condition, yearly tune-ups will ensure it's running properly and safely. Today's automotive tune-ups include repairing or replacing your spark plugs, fuel filters, air filters, oxygen sensor, valves and spark plug wires. In older cars, your tune-ups might include replacing the distributor cap and other parts. Making regular tune-ups part of your car's preventative maintenance is a good way to catch small problems before they become major problems. At Clinton Alignment, we provide comprehensive tune-ups that keep your car at peak performance.
