Suspension - What is your life worth?
Here is something to ponder while deciding what suspension parts you are going to purchase for your street or track car...
YOU ARE PUTTING YOUR LIFE ON THE LINE
Your car's suspension is what keeps YOU in control of the vehicle. Any one suspension part failure could cause you to loose that control. If you don't have control at highway speeds (or faster) death or serious injury is very possible.
Ask questions. Investigate the part, the manufacturer. Who else is using the part(s)? How good/bad is the manufacturer's reputation? Is it manufactured well? etc, etc... If you have any doubts, go with something else.
Every manufacturer has a disclaimer with their parts relieving them from responsibility if the part fails. There may be a warranty, but a warranty does not cover your life or hospital bills. Ultimately the responsibility is yours.
No matter what you choose, regular inspection is a MUST. Bolts loosen and bushings wear. It is even possible that cracks may appear. You won't know until it is too late if you don't check things out regularly.
Please, take time, choose wisely, and inspect regularly. Your life may depend on it.
