How to Upgrade Your Suspension for Off-Roading
Off-roading can give you a rush of adrenaline whether you’re riding on sand, gravel, mud or snow, or riverbeds, rocks and other forms of natural terrain. But even if you enjoy more of a leisurely drive, your vehicle’s suspension can take a beating. Abuse from divots in the ground, fast acceleration, hefty loads and other factors can wear down your stock suspension and affect the comfort and safety of your truck.
Made for off-roading, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are made for off-roading and are better adapted to withstand rough environments. Three and four-wheelers can navigate off highways and onto uneven surfaces because of their tailored designs. ATV hybrid trucks and SUVs, like Jeeps, Hummers and Land Rovers, can also take on challenging turfs aside from paved roads. Ford, GMC and Dodge manufacture vehicles that are off-roading worthy, too.
Like all automobile components, however, your truck or ATV’s suspension can wear over time — which is why installing suspension modifications from General Spring can keep you riding safer and longer.
