Ensuring your suspension is up to par is an important component of a well-maintained vehicle. But you shouldn't trust your suspension work to just anyone!

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 Columbia Fleet Service when your truck's air bag suspension needs service, repair, or replacement. Call us at 410-799-2500 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 Columbia Fleet Service in Jessup, MD 20794 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 410-799-2500 or visit Columbia Fleet Service 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 Columbia Fleet Service 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 Columbia Fleet Service in Jessup, MD 20794.
Had to have my tractor/trailer (78' long, 75K lbs) towed yesterday. Dustin, tow truck driver, arrived earlier than anticipated. He had my truck hooked and on the way to Kenworth dealership in about 30 mins. Have been towed a couple of times before. It took other drivers much longer. It did not take long for me to realize Dustin knew what he was doing. He paid particular attention to safety of my truck (large sleeper (120") and loaded trailer (enclosed car hauler with extended bubble on front). He was very professional, safe, and personable. He did an excellent job! Highly recommend his services!
