Suspension Kit: 3 Reasons Why It's the Perfect Choice

If one part in your suspension system gets damaged, it has to be replaced or repaired immediately. However, replacing a part in your car's suspension system can be a tedious job. First, you have to spend much time browsing catalogs or calling stores just to get the part that you want. Then, you need to have all the tools you need. Fortunately, some car parts stores sell suspension parts in kits. Listed below are the reasons why buying suspension kits is a good idea not only for you but for your car as well.

Suspension kits are complete.

Sometimes, the suspension part that you need is rare or not sold individually. To avoid either of these problems, you need to buy suspension kits. Typically, suspension kits contain shock absorbers, linkages, springs, and nuts. If you'll buy a kit instead of an individual part, you'll have the part that you need and spare parts that you can use in case of emergencies.

Suspension kits are cheaper.

If you'll browse a car parts catalog or ask stores about how suspension parts cost, you'll be surprised. Shock absorbers with strut assemblies cost around 100 to 250 USD, control arms are about 60 to 300 USD, and coil springs range from 100 to 250 USD. Because car parts eventually get damaged, buying car parts individually will just make you spend more. Even though suspension kits cost about 1,000 USD, you'll still end up saving around 250 USD because you already have the parts and tools that you may need in the future.

Suspension kits are durable.

If you'll buy a part just because it's cheap and immediately available, you'll just end up regretting your purchase because it's made from low-quality material. Buying suspension parts in kits will help you avoid this kind of situation. Because all of your replacement car parts are made by a single manufacturer, you can be assured that they are made compatible materials, and they all went through the same quality check.

DIY: Suspension Kit Replacement

Replacing part after part of your car's damaged suspension system is a very taxing job. Sometimes, you have to spend hours just to get the replacement part that you need. Fortunately, car parts stores sell suspension kits which contain all the suspension parts that you need. If you're interested in replacing your old and damaged suspension parts with the parts included in a suspension kit, this simple guide will teach you how it's done. It's best to set aside a day for this job; it'll take five hours for beginners and three hours for experts to finish this task.

Difficulty level: Difficult

What you'll need:

  • Floor jack
  • Jack stands
  • Suspension kit
  • Lug wrench
  • Impact wrench
  • Hammer
  • Replacement nuts and bolts

Pre-installation reminder:

Make sure that the suspension kit that you bought suits your car's make and model.

Step 1: Open the hood. Then, don't forget to disconnect the black (negative) cable on your car's battery to avoid electric shocks.

Step 2: Lift your car off the ground with a floor jack. For you to safely install the suspension kit, prop jack stands at both sides of your car.

Step 3: On each wheel, loosen and remove the nuts securing the lower shock mounting stud. Put them aside, so you won't lose them.

Step 4: Remove the shock from its mount carefully. If it won't come off easily, use your hammer or another heavy tool to gently coax it.

Step 5: Once the shock is removed, disconnect the studs securing the leaf-spring mounts in place. Don't forget to keep these studs separate from the lower shock mounting nuts.

Step 6: Remove the U-bolts from the frame. Once they are safely loosened and removed, take the leaf springs and mounting brackets.

Step 7: Get the new suspension springs from the suspension kit and mount them on the mounting brackets.

Step 8: Get the old bushings from the car frame, and replace them.

Step 9: Before putting the leaf springs back in place, check if the old bolts are still stable. If they are too corroded or rusted, you have to replace the bolts.

Step 10: Connect the U-bolts that you removed back to the frame.

Step 11: Once the U-bolts are secure, install the new shocks to the lower mounting points. Don't forget to tighten the bolts and nuts holding the shocks in place.

Step 12: Gently lower your car back to the ground. Then, reconnect the battery, and start the engine. Test your new suspension by driving on safe streets for a few miles. If all the parts are still in place, then you did a great job. If not, check which part needs to be installed again.
