At Houdaille Shock Restoration, we specialize in building and restoring shock absorbers found in 1949-1960 Ferrari and Maserati vehicles. We are machinists, that are automotive experts, and we cater to the perfectionist.
The Houdaille shock is a critical component of the Ferraris and Maserati suspension systems. Unfortunately,the shock absorber is an often overlooked part of a car that requires attention after years of use.
At Houdaille Shock Restoration, the shock is completely dissembled, rebuilt, and inspected to ensure proper orientation for its location in the vehicle. All rubber components are custom fabricated, replaced and the final product is then assembled. The shocks are also tested on a dynamometer to maximize performance and insure they perform like new.
At Houdaille Shock Restoration, we also service shocks that have been improperly repaired. In the event that shocks were improperly mounted or serviced in the past, we use proprietary methods of machining to modify and reorient the units in order to correctly fit and operate with your vehicle.
