Repairs may feel like an endless cycle, but there’s a way to put the carousel in and out of the mechanic’s on hold. By replacing your entire suspension set at a single time, you can save a lot of the time and funding you would have to spend on individual repairs. There are a lot of benefits to this practice, and we outline four of them in more detail below.
No Guessing Games
A big challenge for any vehicle owner is guessing what part of a system is creating a problem. Unless you have the tools to lift and essentially disassemble your car, you won’t be able to easily target the specific part that is causing problems. If you repair your car piece by piece, every repair will be a scavenger hunt. Since those pieces are all different ages, you’ll get to enjoy a lot more of those scavenger hunts, too. Replacing your suspension set all at once means fewer trips to the mechanic, or at least fewer days stuck under your car in the
Fine Tune Together
Of all the parts and systems that go into your car, few are so delicate and difficult to tune as your suspension. This work is tedious, time consuming, and easy to mess up. All it takes is one good pot hole to require fresh adjustments. Older and newer parts trying to work in harmony can throw your suspension out of alignment, too. Installing your suspension piecemeal makes tuning more difficult and increases the need for regular checkups. If you fine tune your entire, fresh system in one sweep, you can rest assured that it’s truly performing as well as it can.
Your Wheels Will Thank You
Your wheels depend on good suspension. Breaks or strains on your suspension system put extra stress on your tires and throws your wheels out of alignment. Tires are expensive. Buying extras when you don’t have to is a waste of money. Making sure your tires don’t wear down prematurely is also a safety concern. If you have an old suspension set, and you plan on going on a trip, replacing the set in full could prevent the extra wear and tear that leads to flat tires.
All of these points add up to the most important point of all: spending less. While you might be willing to sink some extra funds into your car to give it the power and style you need, there’s no point paying for extra repairs and parts that could be avoided. A full suspension set puts your vehicle in better standing for a longer period of time, which allows you to save up for the things you actually want.
Replacing your full suspension set can make your car feel like an entirely new ride. It limits damage to other systems in the near future as well. Although it requires a larger initial payout, you’ll save more and drive safer for a longer time with a full new suspension set.
