I Think My Car’s Frame Needs To be Straightened.

Car accidents and collisions do not always leave easily visible signs of damage. It may take more driving to realize that something is really wrong with your car. This is often the case with car frame damage, which is a common result of collisions. It is not always easy to recognize at first blush without the help of a professional such as The Don Embry Body Shop.

Here are some signs –

1.  Your vehicle pulls to one side.

2.  It makes unusual noises.

3.  There is uneven wear on the tires.

4.  And…uneven wear on the shocks.

It may be time to speak to a car frame damage specialist, like The Don Embry Body Shop of Louisville. They have been repairing damaged vehicles in the area for six decades at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville. Bring your car into the Don Embry Body Shop by making an appointment at (502) 935-1373.

It Pays to Know Your Auto Body Shop.

There are some things in life where “word of mouth” is really important. Not the least of which is whom you choose to fix your vehicle after a collision. May we suggest the auto body repair experts for 60 years at The Don Embry Body Shop of Louisville. Better yet, see some of the words of previously satisfied customers.

Logan Snyder said in part…”My Volkswagen Jetta…looks like it came straight from the factory.” Mike and Jeannie Evans said…”Thanks for the wonderful job you did on our car.” While Mortisha Kelly exclaimed…”I can’t put into words how grateful I am for your help.”

What may be even more impressive is the longevity of The Don Embry Body Shop serving the Louisville area with quality repair work for six decades!

That Must Have Left a Dent.

No…what dent? That is what happens when you get paintless dent repair from Louisville auto body repair specialists, The Don Embry Body Shop. Two out of every three drivers are distrustful of auto repair facilities. They base it on factors like overcharging for their work, poor experiences, and unnecessary repairs…not 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville!

Paintless dent repair is the most cost-effective and quickest way to repair a vehicle dent. Think of it as a minor scratch on your arm compared to a more severe cut or laceration. Traditional auto body repair would be a comparable treatment option to stitches or surgery. PDR would be the treatment option for the more minor injury.

Paintless dent repair is used all the time (when it applies) at Louisville auto body shop, The Don Embry Auto Body. That may have been foreign to our founder almost six decades ago, but not today! Trust The Don Embry Body shop for all of your vehicle repairs in the Louisville area. Just call (502) 935-1373 and see their work before hand at

Suspension is Primary in the Repair Business.

Your vehicle’s suspension system allows you to continue having a smooth ride and works hard to negotiate the often uneven road surfaces around the Louisville area. The suspension is part of the chassis and it is made up of springs, shock absorbers, struts, as well as linkages, bearings and ball joints.

When your suspension needs to be repaired here are some of the factors involved in the cost –


1.  The type of vehicle you are driving…the cost will be higher on luxury cars.

2.  You may require a wheel alignment after replacing suspension parts.

3.  Your good old insurance company.

4.  Where are you taking your vehicle for repair?

To that last point…how about taking it to The Don Embry Body Shop? Not only have they been around Louisville repairing cars since the Studebaker was popular, but they have a state-of-the-art repair rack. Staying on top of technology is what The Don Embry Body Shop is all about! Visit them on the web at and call (502) 935-1373.

The History of Aluminum Welding.

Now there is a riveting (no pun intended) topic to discuss over the dinner table! The average modern vehicle that tools around the greater Louisville area contains more aluminum than ever before. Aluminum is one of 92 metallic elements that have existed since way back when the Earth was formed.

As AlcoTec Wire Corp’s Tony Anderson puts it “There is a change in the culture and in understanding the difference between steel and aluminum…because they are very different as far as welding is concerned. Once you understand the difference, it's very easy to weld it… far easier than steel.”

Over the decades here at The Don Embry Body Shop we have been known for adapting to cutting edge technology. In the future, laser beam welding may become the norm! When you bring your damaged vehicle into The Dom Embry Body Shop located at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville, we treat it like our own. Drive in or call ahead at (502) 935-1373.
