Suspension

Suspension, Portland, OR

High-Performance Suspension

Great high-performance shocks or struts are essential in Portland, but when you are ready to take your car or truck suspension to the next level you need the experience of the auto repair mechanics at Marque Motors to get the job done right.

Leaf Springs: Trust the auto repair mechanics at Marque Motors 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 Marque Motors are up for the task. Drop by the shop at 7310 S Macadam Ave or give us a call at 503-293-5386 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 Portland 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 Marque Motors at 7310 S Macadam Ave for fast, affordable coil spring installation.

Lowering Kits For A Mean Sport Stance

Drivers in Portland come to Marque Motors to achieve that low-stance, high-performance sports car appearance and improve handling. At Marque Motors we replace stock springs with lowering springs that offer more coils in a condensed stack. Trust the expert mechanics at Marque Motors to create the correct amount of tension between the frame and the suspension system. Call Marque Motors at 503-293-5386 and schedule an appointment to install your lowering kit and shorten the distance between your car's body and the wheels to lessen the center of gravity and increase responsive handling.

Lift Kits

Got massive monster tires? Truck owners in Portland come to Marque Motors to install high-performance lift kits that will increase clearance and provide that aggressive monster truck stance. Securely installing strut mounts, longer springs, new shocks, and a range of hardware to raise up your truck is a tough job. Precisely calibrating the ground clearance larger wheels need is important for optimal safety and performance. Trust the auto repair experts at Marque Motors to transform the look and function of your truck. Take on rugged terrain or just look cool when cruising by giving your truck a little lift. Call 503-293-5386 or stop by our auto repair shop at 7310 S Macadam Ave to set up an appointment.

Sway Bars: At Marque Motors we install sway bars to help driving enthusiasts in Portland grip corners more easily and reduce the demand placed on the springs and suspension system. Prevent body roll when driving aggressively in curves with cold-formed steel alloy sway bars installed with exacting precision to offer bilateral spring deflection. The expert mechanics at Marque Motors in Portland can help you decrease the load difference between the wheels inside and outside the curve by adding sway bars today. Get convenient, affordable fast auto repairs and sway bar installation for high-performance cars at Marque Motors every day. Call Marque Motors at 503-293-5386 or stop by our auto repair shop in Portland today.

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 Marque Motors 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.

Tie Rods

At Marque Motors we know driving enthusiasts in Portland demand more of their high-performance cars and trucks. When you turn a corner on Portland 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.

Wheelie Bars

These simple anti-roll devices look like casters connected to the rear bumper by long bars of flexible Chromoly tubing. Let Marque Motors 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 Marque Motors at 503-293-5386 and let's talk wheelie bars.

You Guys Kick arse!! Thank for the work you do!! The power from 3K to 5K has improved and it has a quicker response. Great upgrade for the money!! Thaank you!!

reviewicon

Marque Motors was recommended to me by several of my 'German Sport car owning' friends. Kurt was very generous with his time to help me understand the differences of the cars that I am researching to purchase (Porsche vs. Audi). He gave me some excellent pointers that I would not have thought about before pursuing a purchase. I will definitely bring the car to Marque for a full pre-purchase inspection when I identify it, and any service and repairs as well. I believe they are an excellent resource!

reviewicon

I've taken a number of Porsches to Kurt over the past 15 years or so. They do careful work, give great advice, and have been very reasonably priced.

reviewicon

I was recommended Marque Motors for a pre-purchase inspection on a Porsche Boxster in Portland. I don't live in the area and hadn't actually seen the car myself, so the inspection was really important to me. Kurt was great and gave me all the information I needed to make an informed purchase, taking time to explain the report details over the phone and answering any questions I had. The inspection also cost me less than I was originally quoted which was nice! If I was anywhere near the area, I'd definitely be going back to Marque Motors for any work my car might need in the future.

reviewicon

We have been doing business with Marque Motors for a long time, this is a quality shop. All my customers that drive Porsches, BMWs, and Audis take their cars here and have nothing but GREAT things to say about their work. Kurt has a very good reputation and his staff knows what they are doing. Marque Motors is a full-service repair facility specializing in Porsche, Audi, BMW, MINI and Volkswagen. NOTE: SERVICE & REPAIR FACILITY SPECIALIST ! Service and Repair Shops that have been around a while are getting harder to find, this is one of the good ones. We are in the industry and my customers say this is a great shop, and I agree.

reviewicon

Kurt and crew always have done what they say, when and for the amount agreed to. They serviced our 1999 Audi A4 for the last 13 years, and I would use them again, and recommend them highly.

reviewicon

Marque Motors was recommended to me about 10 years ago. Nothing but the highest praise was commented about his business. I have owned several Porsches and I would not trust anyone else with these vehicles. The quality of his work is excellent and prices are extremely fair.

reviewicon

I've been using Marque Motors for Porsche service for the last 15 years. My '84 Carrera was serviced by them for routine maintenance when required. I recently had a "pre-buyers" inspection done for a 997.2. I had a few questions about my car so he brought me into the shop while the car was on the lift and James (the tech working on my car) gave me a good tour of the vehicle. I have always been treated very well at Marque Motors. I always have a clear understanding of what I want and what the car requires when I have maintenance work done here. I feel fortunate to have found a great local shop and a local small business I can support with confidence and pride. My kind of people! Thanks guys!

reviewicon

I have been going to Marque Motors for 10 years and I wouldn't trust my cars to anyone else. The best mechanics and best customer service. Kurt and his team are the absolute best!

reviewicon

Took a BMW in for a pre-purchase inspection (which they let me setup super quick). They were great, prompt with the turn around time and gave me all the information I needed. I will be going in shortly to get a couple of things sorted out with the new car!

reviewicon

Brought in a Porsche Cayenne S for some basic maintenance, good friendly people working there, reasonable price, and good work. Thanks!

reviewicon

They were able to accommodate my schedule and get me in in a timely manner. The staff were friendly. Service was timely and the price was great. You can tell they care about their customers and aren't out just to make money. I even got a follow-up call a few weeks later.

reviewicon

Honest, reliable. It seems to be a rarity these days to find a shop that doesn't try to badger you into unnecessary repairs. This shop tells you what's going on and when, if, and how much it's gonna take to keep you on the road.

reviewicon

I took my car here for the DEQ certification. They were extremely efficient, quick and very helpful - even providing step-by-step guide for the on-line renewal process. Makes me wish I had a Porsche or Audi to bring to them for upkeep!! Highly recommend!!

reviewicon

Went to the shop for a DEQ certification. They were fast, friendly, and did the test for no charge. Said they do it for free as a service for their customers, even though I have a Subaru and they don't service Subarus. Almost makes we want to go buy an Audi or Porsche so I can be a customer here.

reviewicon

Got our DEQ testing done in 5 minutes. Also explained step by step what to do next. All at no cost!

reviewicon

Thanks for the quick service and hospitality!

So I buy a 928 in San Francisco and drive all the way to Portland before it breaks down. I have it towed to Marque after getting a recommendation from a PCA member. Despite never meeting me...Marque took it in like it was family, fixed the multiple problems and sent me on my way. I made it to Redmond and it broke down again. (It is, after all, a 928.) Though it is unknown what caused one of the 'fixes' to not 'take' and it is not clear in any way that it was any fault of Marque (!)...they paid (in full!) for the subsequent repair at a Bend Porsche specialist without my asking. I will forever be indebted to Marque and hope to again do business with them. They have my highest esteem!

reviewicon

Carl and his team are great. They've taken great care of my VW Golf and are generous with their time explaining options and their diagnoses when my car needed service.

reviewicon

I went here for DEQ Too! services only because they were close. Boy was I happy with the service. I didn't need an appointment. It seemed a little busy when I walked in but I was greeted immediately and then they took care of everything for me. I barely had time to open my email on my phone! They walked me through what I have to do from here to get my stickers. All in all an incredible service and so much better than driving across town to sit in a long line.

reviewicon

This is the best place to get your DEQ Too Vehicle Emissions Test - great service and very friendly!
