Lightbulb Hyundai Tucson (JM) changing shocks
« on: May 14, 2015, 01:00 AM »
My townhall is upgrading to 20 and the lighter thing takes a week to upgrade, so I was obviously thinking, are there better shock absorbers than the stock ones for my car?
 
  My 2007 Tucson JM is 100k miles and I need to fix the suspension and so on. I'd like to know if there are better shocks than the standard ones? If so, what brand and model should it be?
 
  So please if you're upgrading some lengthy thing on Boom Beach and is bored and happens that you've stumbled on this message, please leave a suggestion below, thank you.

So you are asking for tips on buying car parts... I think I have seen it all now!

It depends on the upgade time you have left. Leaf springs are generally easy to mount but less reliable than regular spring-damper mechanisms or pneumatic shock mounts due to their kinetic friction.

If I get a reeeaaaally lengthy upgrade, then I'll think about converting the car from gas to electric by mean of removing the V6. But converting to leaf springs, seriously, this'd be heavy stuff.

This is the Off-Topic section, so as long as the post is appropriate and not offensive, then I assume this is the area to visit. Yes, I haven't seen this question posted before.

Yeah... and now it's the vault, level twenty... I wonder if I should swap the car altogether, struts  and bushings asnd so on are so expensive!

I think the proper way to go is to keep the steering wheel and change all the rest.

Go with Monroe sensa tracs, the rears should be shocks only pretty easy to unbolt/bolt in new ones. Fronts should be struts which are a little harder but with a few tools not too bad. I've done strut bushings on a couple Hondas and those alone only took an hour per side. Very easily a days worth of work to do it yourself.

It's forbidden to do maintenance to the car in my building, otherwise I'd do that during the next boat upgrades. I'll study your tips on Monroe shocks now, thanks
