Collision Hard Parts Repair

When You’ve Found The Experts, You’re Past The Hard Part!

If you’re unfamiliar with the hard parts of your vehicle, then welcome to your transmission. The transmission is one of the most– if not THE most– important parts of the vehicle for it to transfer power from the engine to the drive shaft. This allows your vehicle to drive forward or backward and operate with the differentials (the system that allows the ‘drive’ wheels to turn at different speeds). 

It seems like aside from the event and impact from the initial collision, the hard part is finding a reliable auto paint and body shop to repair your vehicle. Not with Friendship! With our collision hard parts repair, Friendship Paint and Auto Shop can help you determine if you need to replace any parts of your transmission and help you buy the new, correct parts for your vehicle. Contact any of our locations to get started.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sun gears are the epicenter or the center gear of the planetary gear set, and they depend on each other for proper operation. As a gear set, they are highly specialized, tedious units with tight tolerances. Each planetary gear set will be cut with a unique number of teeth, varying from the other gear sets within the transmission. As many gear sets as you stack up determines how many shifts you must complete to reach high gear.
