Chassis and axles


At Riga Master Workshop, we understand the importance of a solid foundation for your classic Mercedes Benz. Our expert team specializes in the complete restoration of chassis, axles, and all related systems, ensuring your car drives as flawlessly as it looks.

Our comprehensive Chassis & Axle Restoration service encompasses:

  • Detailed Inspection: We meticulously examine the entire chassis and axle assemblies, identifying any rust, damage, or wear-and-tear. This includes components like frame rails, floor pans, suspension mounts, spring towers, and differential housings.

  • Expert Metalwork: Our skilled technicians address any rust issues with meticulous restoration work. This may involve sandblasting, rust removal, patching, and panel replacement. We ensure structural integrity is restored to factory specifications.

  • Suspension & Steering System Rebuild: Worn bushings, ball joints, tie rods, and other suspension components are replaced with high-quality parts. Steering components are inspected and rebuilt or replaced as needed, ensuring precise handling and confident control.

  • Shock Absorber Replacement: Worn shock absorbers are replaced with new units, restoring optimal ride quality, handling, and stability.

  • Spring Restoration or Replacement: Leaf springs (if equipped) are thoroughly inspected. We can restore them or recommend replacements if excessive wear or damage is present. Coil springs are also inspected and replaced if necessary.

  • Axle Overhaul: Our thorough axle service includes disassembly, inspection, and cleaning of all components. Worn bearings, seals, and gaskets are replaced to ensure smooth operation and prevent leaks. Differentials are serviced with fresh lubricant, and potential rebuilds are addressed if needed.

  • Brake System Restoration: We perform a complete brake system overhaul, including rebuilding or replacing calipers, installing new pads and lines, and bleeding the system for optimal braking performance.

  • Sandblasting & Painting: Once the restoration work is complete, the chassis and axle assemblies are professionally sandblasted to remove old paint and prepare the surface for a high-quality, long-lasting paint job. We offer a wide range of paint options to match your car's original specifications.
