Brought in my antique 1957 Jeep FC-150 for repair of a broken exhaust pipe. Jerry had me fixed in 20 minutes for a very low price. I'm very happy with the service.

Jerry did a great job at addressing all of my concerns. He drew out several design options for me for my 2010 Evo. He did a great job at explaining parts, options, designs, performance, and sound. I'll definitely go back to his shop for future work. He really cares about his customers and does great quality work.

Called up Jerry to get an estimate in time and cost. True to his word, he saw my car right away, finished 30 minutes earlier than quoted, kept to his quote over the phone and even made a repair as best he could to a cracked section of my exhaust that he discovered. I am a new customer and will tell everyone that I know needing exhaust work to see Jerry! Great customer service, pricing and super friendly.

Jerry runs a terrific shop with great customer service. You can expect fair prices and quality work. He was able to provide me with a new exhaust connection after a transmission swap in my 65 Mustang and did it in one day! I highly recommend Lara's Muffler.

Hate dealing with car repairs, but this was a truly wonderful experience. Jerry was so gracious and courteous. I paid half of what others quoted me. The service was fast and my jeep runs great. TY so much Jerry

Catalytic Converters

What is catalytic converter and why is it important?

A catalytic converter is an emissions component responsible for cleaning the bad air that an engine produces; it is a filter. When it is not working properly, the check engine light usually comes on the vehicle. When a catalytic converter is bad, a car will fail a smog check. When it gets damaged inside, the vehicle might produce rattling noises or the vehicle might run with a lack of power, bad gas mileage, or even run at a higher engine temperature than usual. The converter can be replaced with an original factory part or a state approved aftermarket part.

Leaf Springs

What is a leaf spring and why is it important?

A leaf spring is a part in your car's suspension system. It helps dampen shocks from road conditions. When the leaf spring starts losing tension you may notice your vehicle bouncing and swaying. Over time it may become a safety concern.
