Pistons and Piston Kits!


Pistons are one of the core components of most internal combustion engines. Attached to the crankshaft via connecting rods, these cylinders of metal withstand the enormous forces, heat and pressure generated by compression and combustion. In turn, these forces get transferred to the crankshaft which ultimately turn the transmission and drive our vehicles.

Pistons are not a part that is often replaced in a vehicle. Many times when an engine undergoes the type of damage that will require the pistons to be replaced, the car is simply scrapped and a new one purchased. Still, there are instances where a vehicle's engine gets rebuilt.

Replacing pistons requires a great deal of technical knowledge about the engine being worked on.

We stock and sell quality pistons from these manufacturers:
