suspension and geometry tuning

about us


Our ethos today is the same as when we founded in 2005 – to provide market-leading suspension tuning and chassis tuning services for road, track, and race cars.

We are proud of being a small yet perfectly formed family business, where our principles are honesty and transparency, being more than fair, enjoying what we do, adding value wherever possible, and giving information and knowledge in bucket loads. We have made a massive investment in world-class equipment and technology over the last decade. Coupled with our ever-expanding knowledge base and technical know-how, this makes us a market-leader in what we do. Not only do we invest in our tools and equipment, but also in our own driving skills through one-to-one driver training with leading instructors.

We are truly passionate about what we do, and the benefits proper suspension set-up can achieve. We endeavour to go the extra mile in all that we do, ensuring customer satisfaction through our honesty and transparency from the start of the process to the end.


Center Gravity was founded in 2005 by Chris Franklin and wife Jayne. They decided to create the dream job for Chris, carving out a niche business from a gap on the market experienced trackside.

Today the company is a small but perfectly formed family run unit. Chris heads up the engineering side of the business, working closely with fellow engineer Pete, while wife Jayne and daughter Holly run the office, dealing with all the enquiries, bookings, and finances.

Based in Atherstone, in the heart of the Midlands, Center Gravity is perfectly positioned for customers from all over the UK to reach. So if you’re looking for suspension specialists ‘near me’ you’re sure to come across Center Gravity.

why our customers choose center gravity


Over the years we are thrilled to have built up an incredible reputation for being one of the original and the best companies to turn to for car suspension geometry improvements, especially for Porsche suspension tuning and Porsche wheel alignment. We constantly aim to surprise and delight our customers with how we can improve their cars’ performance and handling – and it’s this attitude, together with hard work, that has helped us become renowned for what we do.

tailored service

Our service is completely bespoke to each and every customer and their car. We invest time in our customers before we even look at their cars – to understand how they drive, if they will be driving on their own or with passengers, what tyres they use and if they change them for the Winter, how frequently they drive, if they go on driving holidays, if they will use a track, who else drives the car, and their mileage breakdown. Only when we really understand your requirements can we ensure we deliver what you need.

personal attention

Our customers are as involved in the modification of their cars as they want to be. We invite all our customers to stay and watch and ask questions as we undertake the work, or they are equally as welcome to leave us to it. We are always accessible to our customers and if they have any follow up questions, or need any advice. Alternatively, you can book an appointment with an engineer.
