At Chester Ave Brake, we are brake & suspension specialists. We've been in business since 1917, run by the same family. We specialize in brake parts & service for any type of vehicle.   We have transitioned from our humble beginnings  in a converted livery stable at 2316 Chester, to our 6000 sq ft facility at 2509 Chester, to our now sprawling 35,000 sq ft location at 19420 Colombo.  

Parts Department

Here at Chester Ave Brake, we pride ourselves on both our knowledge & extensive inventory.  We carry not only the popular, every day items, but also the hard to get parts that the "other guys" won't bother with.  There is NOBODY for 100+ miles in any direction that has the inventory & capabilities that we do when it comes to brakes.    We carry the major lines of OEM quality, always have, always will.  We are the oldest Bendix distributor in the west, carrying their products since 1935 when it was still known as the Westinghouse Air Brake Company.  Some of the other lines we carry are Arvin Meritor (Rockwell) foundation brake parts, Timken bearings , Raybestos brake parts, National Seals, Marathon Brake lining, Luberfiner filters & others.  We ship our products world-wide same day.  Delivery service is offered.  We can custom make you a brake, fuel, or hydraulic hose most times while you wait.  We are the only DOT certified manufacturer of brake hoses in Bakersfield.  Give us a call at 661.392.9292.

Service Department

Our service department can handle any job relating to brakes & suspension, no matter how small or large.  We repair the grocery-getters all the way to off highway equipment.  Our spring shop can beef your suspension up or smooth out your rough ride.  Brake certificates for DMV are also available.  Our custom friction department can re-line anything with friction material on it.  This includes the only production bonding facility between Los Angeles & the bay area.
