Choosing the Right Auto Parts for your Suspension




Pages: 1 2

There are many things that you must think about before repairing your car and the most important issue that must be decided is on the right auto parts for the job. There are so many options to choose from. Many people contend that a certain brand of auto parts is the best for any job, some people choose strictly OEM auto parts , and there are others who choose after-market auto parts simply because there is less of a hassle and they are less expensive anyway. One scenario where you may encounter deciding which auto parts are right for the job is when dealing with repairing your whole suspension on your car.

Have you ever been traveling down the road and were able to feel every nook, cranny, and small bump that came along? What usually happens when your suspension system needs replacing is that the auto parts that are in your car give out and your car bounces vigorously up and down on the road no matter what kinds of rocks or bumps that are hit. If you are serious about changing the suspension system on your car, though, there are certain auto parts that you should know about that will do the job properly. Not all of them are cheap, but they certainly are needed in order to get the automobile back in tip top shape.

Strut Assembly

There are several words for the suspension on your car that can be used interchangeably. For example, the struts on your car, the auto parts involved with the suspension, as well as the shocks in your car are all the exact same part; however, they are just slightly different methods of calling them. The strut assembly that you must buy can come from virtually any place that sells new auto parts and these are generally going to be anywhere from $75 to $100. For a little bit more one is actually able to buy lifetime warranties, which is a great deal to those who want the added protection! Since the struts, or suspension system, don’t need to be changed very often, many people just decide to buy the part.

Strut Mount

The strut mount is another one of the auto parts that is crucial to having a successful suspension system again, but the main purpose of this auto part is to provide a bed for the whole strut assembly. These auto parts usually vary with the brand that produces them, but they are generally somewhere around the $50 price.

Shock Absorbers

The third type of auto parts that you’ll need when repairing the suspension is the shock absorbers. These are part of what will absorb the bounce in the automobile ride, but these are not all that expensive either. Nevertheless, the shock absorber auto parts

    Like baker said, go to an auto parts store and get a cheap mirror, a 5/16 x 2 1/2 inch bolt with a couple flat washers and a locknut. Mount it to your top door hinge and you're good!!!

    It's called Header Wrap or Tape, and you can buy it at almost any large Auto parts Store, or from Hot Rod magazines. While it helps the engine produce more power, usually it's only for race applications, not street, because it keeps all the heat in the pipes, and will eat them up under normal everyday use. Personally I like the chrome pipes on my Intruder and wouldn't want to cover them up anyway. :)

    yea this is really bad, did you change the oil and all the filters? A fuel filter might help you out alot and they're cheap. You can get them from any advanced auto parts and they really make a difference in pickup.

    If your wheels are loose, and have play. You need to go up to your nearest auto parts store and buy some new lug nuts. The 91-94 wheels had different lug nuts than the 89-90 aluminum wheels!!

    Hey my friend. Good review. I like tactical pens…at least the concept. I've never owned one so maybe I wouldn't like them. I'll have to pick one up. Try some etching primer before paint on your pocket clip. That primmer tends to etch and chemically bond into the metal. That SHOULD give your paint a little more durability. You can get it in a spray can at Walmart or most auto parts stores.

    Yes you can “thecartel360″….in fact it is made for synthetic oil. They sell this stuff at advanced auto parts and auto zone. Walmart only caries the non synthetic type. This stuff is specifically made for use in synthetic oils. I have used it and it took away the tapping noise in my engine. Also try the gasoline additive. It increase my MPG's by about 15%.

    You cannot go to auto zone or advance auto parts to get anything except parts for cars or pickups. At O'Reilleys they have the books to cross reference parts for heavy equipment plus things like the larger WIX filters.
