Who is EnergySuspensionParts.com?

Think "Suspension Fanatics". We absolutely LOVE suspension parts. We have been working with suspension parts for over a decade and enjoy a very close relationship with big name suspension manufacturers like Moog, Prothane, Energy Suspension, and Whiteline to name a few. We dont just sell their parts. We KNOW their parts. We have a team of people who are tasked with learning about these suspension parts and explaining in a clear manner why YOU the customer should care about these parts. What's more is that we arent here to just blindly hawk their parts either. If a manufacturer's part isn't GREAT, we'll tell you! The last thing we want is to sell a part that is less than PERFECT. If they need to go back to the drawing board to redesign their part, we'll tell them. We want you to be "Suspension Fanatics" too, and crummy Suspension Parts aren't gonna cut it, are they?

More than "Suspension Fanatics" though, we're "Jesus Freaks". Throughout our long history in business God has opened many doors for us and given us success in the things we do. It's truly undeniable that without Christ, we are nothing. Because of that fact, we desire to handle our business in a "Christ Like" manner. If for any reason you ever think we're dropping the ball on that, we would much rather you tell us and call us out on it. We dont just want to be Christians on Sunday. We want to serve you Monday through Friday with the same Christian attitude we would show to our friends and families.

I dont know if there's a way that we can glorify God through selling Suspension Parts, but we're sure gonna try.

DST Team Tiffany

Tiffany Slaughter

She Pays People

Every payday people are SO excited to see her. She always forgets it's payday. Consequently Brit reminds her every 13.2345 minutes until he has been paid.
DST Team David

David Sears

Warehouse Manager

If you put a part back on the wrong shelf he reserves the right to ban you from the warehouse for the rest of forever. He feeds the chickens. The chickens love David.
DST Team Brit

Brit Hull

Customer Service Manager

Dresses professionally. Hasn't spent a lot of time in jail ... that we know about anyway. Possibly Captain America, but he can't throw a frisbee very well so we're not convinced.
DST Team Graham

Graham Slaughter

Thanks God for giving him something other than WalMart to do for a living. He said something was in his eye when this picture was taken. We think it's his inner pirate coming out.
DST Team Greg

Greg Wherland

Wholesale Manager

If there is ever a zombie apocalypse, it's a good thing that Greg is here. If he isn't at his desk or with his kids, he's probably in the woods somewhere.
DST Team Chelsea

Chelsea Baker

Data Manager

Organizes stuff. A LOT of stuff. Cant keep a straight face for 2 seconds without busting into a smile. Studied math ... we're scared of her brain.

Meet The Team!

They actually know what they're doing.

DST Team Amanda W

Amanda Wartes

Order Processing

Processes all orders, allowing everyone to get their stuff quickly. If you have questions about anything Firefly, Kung Fu Panda, or Chris Evans, Amanda is who to go to. Also, she knows everything about every movie ever made – IMDB is jealous!
DST Team Drew

Drew Taylor

The Other Website Guy

Drew makes everything on the website look pretty. He looks about this serious 95 percent of the time. His passions include his wife, his guitar, people of different cultures and anything to do with the TV shows "Psych" or "I Love Lucy".
DST Team Dean

Dean Mason

Customer Service

Hardcore get it done and fixed dude. If someone is talking in the office, it is most likely Dean. He can tell you a story so well, that no matter the subject, you believe him, even when the story is absurd.
DST Team Edwin

Edwin Lingle

Customer Service

Old School Cool. Edwin is the guy you EXPECT to talk to when you call somebody about auto parts. He's got decades of experience in auto parts and the knowledge and education to backup it up. Of course the fact that he drives a Classic Mustang sure doesn't hurt either.
DST Team Grant

Grant Lewis

Warehouse Crew

Has a cryptic tattoo. We dont know what it means but suspect he's part of some weird secret society. Also, teaches youth group at Church!
DST Team Toni

Toni Evans

Customer Service

Toni always has a box of snacks on her desk. And the cat. We can't tell if the cat likes her, or if he just wants food. Either way, we're just happy the cat likes someone.
DST Team Tammy

Tammy Johnson

Customer Service

Always has a smile on her face, but don’t let that smile fool you – she is a HUGE fan of the Minions. Bob is her favorite, but really, she is just up for being mischievous – just don’t take her teddy bear.
DST Team Stephen

Stephen Bottlinger

Customer Service

Stephen is ….. interesting. That sly look he is showing – that is normal. He has so much knowledge in that head of his that he has to prop his head up to keep him from falling over. Maybe it’s his Pokémon knowledge...
DST Team Krista

Krista Voss

Customer Service

Has 2 kids who play sports, so she is used to chaos. Even with the craziness, she always has time to stop and help a customer in need.
DST Team Dillon

Dillon Kreidel

Warehouse

An avid outdoorsman. Loves hunting, fishing, and just spending time outside. One of his most memorable outings included the extermination of 61 varmints in a single night.
DST Team Dillon

Randi Farney

Customer Service

Likes horses, and most things country, and has a thick Texas accent. She's nice, but she can go crazy on you with little warning. Crazy posessive of her Cap'n Crunch.
DST Team Dillon

Becca Allen

Customer Service

She may be one of our newer members, but dont let that fool you - she knows her stuff. If you trip in front of her, she can fix you up, although this look on her face is how she will look at you after she knows you are ok!

Office Animals

The B team.

DST Team Chewi

DST Team Ham'r

Ham'r H2

The Pig Favorite

Graham saved me from the wild and gave me a cool name. I will love DST til the end of my days.
DST Team Rooster

Rooster

Cocky son-of-a-gun.

Lets face it, roosters are either a tool for making baby chicks or ... you eat them. He's one step away from the rotisserie if he attacks my kids again.
DST Team Ever

Barking Machine.

Barks at everything EXCEPT the Mail Man. She even barks at the WIND. Interestingly, that annoyed look on her face is the same look we get when we take just about anyone else's picture too.
DST Team Turkey

The guard dog.

Think's she is a guard dog. Recently took off with a male for some reason we don't know. We pray she returns to us, one day.

The Queen of all chickens. Survived against all odds, time and time again. Holds title for "most beloved chicken" at DST... Maybe even the whole world?

DST Team The Peeps

The Peeps

Babies!

Part Rooster, part Colonel. You get the picture. All our hopes and dreams are wrapped up in these young lives ... or something like that.

Our history

God has had a hand in every step of the way.

  • 2016
  • New Warehouse ... in a peach orchard?

    As you drive up to the new warehouse, you'll be greeted by over 600 peach trees.

    New warehouse entrance flanked by peach trees

    2016 was an exciting year for DST. Not only did our team grow, but our inventory grew as well. By the end of 2016, our warehouse was so full that we needed to build a new warehouse to hold everything so we can ship your your order the same day you place it.

  • New Warehouse Site Prepared

    Aerial Image of the New Warehouse Site

    In late 2016 we began work on the new warehouse building. The red soil at the back of the picture is where the new building will be built.

    The soil in the front that is in nice little lines ... well those are rows for peach trees of course.

  • We blew up a car...

    Because explosions are awesome!

  • 2015
  • New Website Design 2015

    Only a year after the 2014 design launch, we've taken what we learned from the 2014 website redesign and tried to take it up a notch.

  • DST Blog

    Somewhere along the way we seem to have come to the understanding that we have a lot to say. So ... DST BLOG!

  • DST Team 2015

    Somehow Graham isn't in this picture. Whatever. He's still here somewhere.

  • 2014
  • New Land Purchased

    DST New Land Purchased 2014

    At the start of 2014 we finalized a purchase of 25 acres which we hope will some day be the future site of DST

  • Websites Redesigned

    DST New Website 2014

    It took about 3 months of hard work, but we finished a redesign of our websites around a mobile friendly format. Almost exactly 10 years after we opened for business.

    Other odd wildlife has decided to make a home at DST too.

  • DST Team 2013

    The DST family also grew with humans too, not just weird wildlife.

    Some of the new people are more normal than others.

  • Hammy Missing

    Unfortunately offices in the middle of nowhere also means it isn't uncommon for coyotes to run across the property. Sadly Hammy the pig was only a brief spark in our lives at DST.

  • Hammy the Pig

    DST Wildlife

    The new offices are located in the middle of nowhere. It's only natural that we should have wild animals that we find for pets!

  • 2012
  • Bumps

    There have been a FEW bumps along the way.

  • Road Flood

    DST Road Flood

    We're far enough into the middle of nowhere that it isn't unheard of for the road to the office to flood.

  • 2011
  • Truckload Inventory

    DST Truckload Inventory

    Ever wonder what it looks like to have an 18 wheeler pull up full and leave empty?

  • SuperPro

    SuperPro brought further diversity of offerings to our catalog, helping us to expact our reach for suspension parts to even more customers.

  • Office Space was still tight

    DST Customer Service Office 2010

    Hard to believe, but in 2010 this picture has 5 workstations AND the breakroom.

  • Standing desks

    Office jobs can be bad for your waistline. Stand at your desk!

  • Filled the warehouse with 10-12 foot shelves

    Building shelves is slow hard work when you're building a hundred of them.

  • The view from the office is GREAT

  • Moved into new offices

  • 2009
  • Things moved along pretty fast

    DST Construction Air

    Surprisingly it doesn't take long to build a steel building on a slab of concrete.

  • New Office Building Construction Started

    DST Construction 2009

    In 2009 we broke ground for a new building that we hoped would house DST for many years to come.

  • Whiteline

    Daystar

    Whiteline's depth of product offerings for international vehicles helped us to better serve our growning international customer market.

  • 2008
  • Daystar

    Daystar

    Daystar brought a new diversity of products to us while still maintaining the focus on Polyurethane parts.

  • 2006
  • MOOG

    MOOG

    Working with the MOOG brand was a no-brainer for us. They have all the hard parts that you NEED to install when you're replacing your bushings.

  • Prothane

    Prothane

    Interestingly enough, having competing brands was GOOD for business. Prothane makes similar parts to Energy Suspension, but they also both makes parts that the other folks dont.

  • 2005
  • Energy Suspension

    Energy Suspension

    It didn't take us long to realize that we like selling suspension parts. By the grace of God, we found a brand to work with that has performed in both quality or parts and sales numbers. Energy Suspension.

  • First Office Building

    DST First Office Building

    So the first office building was ... just the house.

  • First Office

    Yeah, that's a garage door in the background. We had an office in the garage. It's hard to fit 4 workstations in a garage.

  • 2004
  • First Website

    DST Website 2004

    So lets be honest, this website was pretty awful. We keep it here as a reminder of where we started and how many doors God has opened for us over the years.

  • del Sol tuning

    Selling del Sol parts made sense. We had 2 of them!

    DST was first launched in 2004 as an eCommerce source for Honda del Sol parts. Originally, DST meant "del Sol tuning".

    DST Selling Grapes

    We didn't always know that we would get into business selling suspension parts, there were failures along the way.

    But there was always a team (thanks Scott).

    God knew what he had in store for us and He prepared us for these good things every step of the way.
