Powder Coat Vehicle Suspension for Maximum Protections

Posted on: June 27th, 2016 by byersbushblog

One of the very first sections of a vehicle to go bad is the suspension, and this is too bad because it is one of the most important and also one of the more expensive sections of a vehicle. Shocks, struts and springs are all exposed to dirt and grime on a daily basis and they get moist every time that you drive around after a good rain.

It doesn’t matter if you are driving a minivan to the store, or you are taking a dirt bike through forest trails, if you are not protectively coating your equipment it is going to rust and fall apart eventually. The best way to keeps it functioning like new, and to keep it looking good is by powder coating the equipment.

You will have to spend a bit of money to have this done, but you will save yourself money in the long run when you don’t have to make suspension repairs.

Deciding What to Protect

One of the most important decisions that you can make is which vehicles to actually protect against rust and corrosion. While it is a good idea to protect items that you will be keeping for 10 years or longer, doing so on a vehicle that you will only have for a few years is likely a waste of money.

Keep in mind that powder coating protection can help raise the value of some vehicles and ATVs when the time comes to sell them off, but you often won’t recoup your initial investment if you sell the vehicle off just a few years after treating it.

That is why you want to think long and hard about how long you will be keeping the item, and only protects the vehicles that you will be sticking with over the long term to maximize your value.

Protect ATVs and Dirt Bikes

Both ATVs and dirt bikes are used in damp conditions regularly. Because of this it makes even more sense to protectively coat these products if you will be using them often and they don’t come protected already.

You will get more years out of these machines, and the cost to have the work done will be relatively affordable as well.

Choosing the Colors

When you decide to powder coat your suspension components you have to pick from one of the available colors. Many companies offer a clear coating, as well as a large array of other color options to pick from.

Take your time and choose the one that you believe will compliment your vehicle the best overall. This is the fun aspect of having your suspension components protected and you will be excited to show off the finished product to friends and family.

Having the Work Done

Ensure that the company doing the work takes their time stripping down to the bare metal before applying the protective coating. You can usually tell if a company is going to do a good job by looking at customer reviews for related past projects.

If the company has good reviews and is known for doing the work properly, it is more likely that you will get the results that you are looking for.

While many people will hesitate to spend additional money on something like powder coating protection for their suspension components, it makes a lot of sense to do so when you will be using that machine for many years.

Sure you will spend more money initially, but you will enjoy a higher resale value many years later, and you will get more life out of your vehicle if you live in sections of the country that suffer from rust problems.

At least consider these protective measures the next time that you buy a vehicle, or for the machines that you already have around your home.
