NMR Car Suspension Question
I know this isn't a motorcycle issue. My wife back in the first week of december spun out her car and banged it up. What looked like it wouldn't be a big deal turned into two months later and close to 20k in repairs. The current thing holding things up is waiting on some suspension parts that were damaged but weren't caught until they were doing the final alignment before cleaning the car up. It tweeked a lower control arm, wheel bearing, and the MacPherson strut.
Now here is my question. They are only changing one strut, not both fronts. Which to me seems kinda weird. Cuz the car has like 33k miles. It would seem that it would be unbalanced. I know if you had that many miles on the tires and one blows you have to change two of them to keep wear levels on the matching tire to be evenly yoked. I would think that the same would apply on suspension. Especially on a newer AWD car. So any mechanics out there have any opinions?
BTW it is a '08 Hyundai Veracruz AWD
