Kral Auto Parts LLC is a family owned parts outlet. Established by Jim and Beth Kral, we specialize in Exhaust Manifold Bolt Repair Kits for 1999 and newer GM Trucks and SUV’s.
Jim got his start in auto mechanics at age 13 while working with his Dad doing automotive repair in a one-stall garage on his grandparents farm. After graduating from school he decided to open his own business. He has owned and operated his own auto repair shop since 1989.
The first Exhaust Manifold Bolt Repair Kits were designed and built by Jim. Over the years, he saw many of his customers bring in their 1999 and newer GM Trucks and SUVs with broken exhaust manifold bolts. The traditional repair for this, as you know, is very expensive. Jim felt strongly that there had to be another solution that would save his customers money and eliminate the possibility that the bolts would break again. The end results are the parts that you see on our website. He installed the first Exhaust Manifold Bolt Repair Bracket on the vehicle of one of his customers in September 2005.
The QUALITY of our parts is our main priority. We contribute to the local economy by staying with our local manufacturer and suppliers and are proud to say that our parts are Made in the USA.
