The drivetrain, also referred to as the powertrain, refers to the parts and systems that create power and deliver it to the road. It’s all the parts and pieces that make your car go. The drivetrain also includes the systems that keep your car traveling safely down the road The main parts of the drivetrain includes the wheels, suspension, exhaust system, drive shaft, engine and transmission.
A properly maintained powetrain means that the energy produced by your engine is being used in the most efficient way possible. This means a more fuel effiecient car and more miles per gallon.
The suspension system is the bridge between the engine and the power it generates to the wheels and the impact the road has on the vehicle. Movement and inertia create incredible forces on your car’s frame. Your suspension system balances the vehicle. An improperly maintained suspension system can create an unsafe vehicle and unsafe driving conditions for you, your family and other drivers.
The engine and transmission (along with the drive shaft and differential) move the car forward, but to make the vehicle manageable and driveable, the suspension system absorbs the energy and allows you to drive in comfort. A worn steering and suspension system can create excess noise, premature tire wear, excessive vibration and alignment damage. At Christian Brothers, we make sure your suspension system is fully operational and up to manufacturer standards.

They have friendly and prompt service. My car runs great, and I had no idea it needed the rear shocks until I drove it after they were installed. What a difference it made! Thanks guys! A really big high five to you all!

Christian Brothers is the only repair place I will take my vehicles. They recently replaced struts and brakes on my wife's car and received the same great service and customer care that I have come to expect at Christian Bros! I won't take my cars anywhere else!
