When to Consider a Suspension Upgrade

When to Consider a Suspension UpgradeA vehicle suspension system is not always the top priority when you are thinking of vehicle upgrades, but it is an important part of ensuring your vehicle functions properly. Without a properly sized and maintained suspension system you can quickly find that you are overloading your truck during use. Especially if you rely on your truck to perform when you need it you will want to make sure that the suspension system that supports your truck is functioning properly.

When Might You Need to Upgrade Your Suspension System?

There are two times when it is extremely prudent to consider an upgrade to your suspension system. The first is when you are modifying your truck to perform additional tasks that may not have been considered when the design and build happened. If you are choosing to add a heavy duty snow plow to the front of a truck, or hooking up a large and cumbersome trailer to the back, it’s important to make sure that the suspension system that is in place can handle the load. If not you want to upgrade your system before sagging and damage occurs.

The second opportune time to consider an upgrade is when you find that your suspension has worn out and needs to be replaced. Especially if the failure of the suspension happened before you expected it to occur you want to consider if you have been over stressing the suspension springs. If this is a possibility, why would you want to put on the same system that already was inadequate? Instead it’s important to look for something more robust, such as:

·TUFTRUCK Super Heavy Duty Coil Springs: These extra heavy-duty coil springs can improve the ability to add extra weight such as a heavy trailer to the back of a vehicle or a snow plow to the front, and are an ideal addition for sagging or under-sprung springs on a truck. The TUFTRUCK line is better than anything on the market today and is available for many major truck brands.
