Company History:

Richard Bender came to California in 1962 with his family and started working for Bear Frame & Wheel as an alignment tech.  Soon after, he started working at Russ Davis Ford, which is now Clippenger Ford. There, he did suspension, frame and alignment work and eventually established quite a reputation for his quality work and expertise on suspensions.

He also invented several components to repair some of the early suspension problems Ford had. In 1965 Ford Motor Company employed him to do all the suspension work on Ford sponsored Pro Stock Mustangs. In 1967 Richard was ask to teach at Citrus Community College and taught for 11 years.  After about 4 years working for Ford, Richard decided it was time to start up his own business. In 1972 Benders Wheel Alignment began. 35 years later we are still here in the same location doing the same high quality work.

  • We are nice people too.  We speak to you in terms that you understand and thus preventing any miscommunications.  You can feel free to ask as many questions as you like and rely on us for quality information about your car and the service at hand.
