Brakes Shop

Brakes Shop, South Boston, VA

Southern Automotive is South Boston's Brake Shop for High-Performance Vehicles

Come to Southern Automotive in South Boston to get high-performance brakes that stop with authority every time regardless of road conditions. We have organic, ceramic, and metallic replacement brake pads with applications ranging from daily driving to track racing to off-roading. Talk with the expert mechanics at Southern Automotive to determine which type of brake pad is best for your driving style and application. Upgrade to high-performance rotors, calipers, master cylinders, and brake fluids the next time you have your brakes serviced at Southern Automotive in South Boston.

Talk To Southern Automotive About High-Performance Brake Service Upgrades:

Metal Brake Pads: Performance-driven drivers prefer the metallic brake pads because they tolerate a much wider range of temperatures and track conditions. Metal brake pads are excellent conductors of heat making them able to withstand more heat without debonding while also cooling back down rapidly.

Line Locks: Love a good smokey burnout? Let your rear wheels spin aggressively without wasting your rear brake pads. Get your line lock installed by the auto repair experts at Southern Automotive in South Boston. Allow your front brakes to lock independently of the rear brakes with just the flip of a simple switch.

Brake Booster: Get a master cylinder on steroids by adding a brake booster installed by the expert mechanics at Southern Automotive. Reduce the amount of pedal pressure needed for braking with higher hydraulic pressure and lower force applied on the brake pedal.

Drum to Disc Conversion: You love your classic car but let's face it, those old drums make stopping hazardous. For restoration enthusiasts, the mechanics at Southern Automotive specialize in 15-inch wheel drum to disc conversion that maintains the original manufacturer aesthetics. Get a complete brake system that includes 11-inch drilled and slotted rotors, single-piston cast calipers, stock or drop spindles, and a master cylinder with brake booster when you do your drum to disc conversion at Southern Automotive.

I called to get an oil change and it was cheaper than a local competitor that I had gone to, and they even inflated my tires that were a little low! I appreciate their great customer service!!

Had my old Mercedes to 3 other shops to get the brakes working and they could not find the problem. Southern had to order parts but had me stopping the next day at a reasonable cost for that car. I need to get back for a tune up.
