Spring Into Action | Fitting in Pairs

As the potholes take their toll, customers are facing a time when their vehicles could need replacement springs.

When you’re fitting new springs, we recommend that you always suggest to the customer to replace them in pairs.

Fitting in Pairs

There are many benefits to fitting coil springs in pairs. Failure to do so can result in a number of issues, including:

  • Uneven ride height
  • A negative effect on steering and handling
  • Increased tyre wear
  • Increased braking distances
  • Increased fuel consumption

It can also be prudent to replace shock absorbers when replacing springs, as these are subject to the same wear as springs. Weak shock absorbers can also reduce the life-span of the new springs. At The Parts Alliance we stock coil springs and leaf springs (and shock absorbers) for a huge range of vehicles, meaning you can be confident of getting the right pair of springs for your repair jobs.
