Need new shocks and front brake pads. Would appreciate recommendations. It is for a Rav 4 Toyota.

I have been happy with Car City in Riberas or Ron Young in Chapala.

We have always used Francisco.   Guy is honest, and he delivered our home while we were out of country......paid when we returned! Satisfied customer since 2005!

Francisco is across from Masaras Clinic. On the upper service road next to Junior's garage. It's run by his son no - speaks perfect English. After being ripped off my many car shops they fix the problem and not expensive. Would not go anywhere else now.

Goodyear store in Chapala, professional, priced reasonably, and most knowledgeable..Also have good memories of Roberto just down from Super Lake.

If you are on west end then Automotriz Zambrano in Joco does excellent work at great price.. Just had rear brakes done and very pleased.. See Sergio Ramos..

Address is Vicente Guerrero PTE #192. Jocotepec

Good luck

Have to say Francisco's, They replaced my pads, front and rear, turned the rotors and replaced rear shocks. Happy with the service and price.
This is from someone who owned a full service repair facility for over 20 years.

New option for those in Chapala or east of Chapala - FRATS - beside Aceros Ocotlan as you head east from Chapala. Have heard nothing but positive comments so far. They also have opened a body shop beside the "O-Shirt" garment making establishment.
