Default Money Well Spent?

Looking for opinions here. Should I spend money on my car to improve the suspension (like a Hotckis Suspension Kit), or buy implants for my wife?

Since you're in Utah the car probably gets put up but you can use the implants year round.

Actually, I've lived in SLC but St George probably isn't bad so maybe it's a toss up.

Lets see smooth out curves or make more hmm. How about implants first then take her for a ride. I mean take your wife for a ride in the car after the implants, (I know what you were thinking) maybe she will notice the ride being a little more bouncy... (keep your eyes on the road) Maybe you could get both

Um, I would steer away from implants that only cost the price of a tvs set up.

Depends on what the OEM equipment was on both, and how much sag it's developed over the years (which is holding up better with age).....

Well Ferris ! If i were you i would spend first on the wife then on the car . Trust me this is sound advice. If you spend on the car first this sends a very clear message to her that the car is more important than she is to you. Be smart and do the right thing . As for me i would spend on the car my wifes second floor was built just fine from the assembly line at the factory. Alex

Well depends on which one you plan on keeping the longest. Been there done that on implants with 1st wife. Paid for them saw the before, days after surgery and before they could heal and before I could enjoy the after, divorce papers were filed. Years later seems like everyone has seen them except for me. True story no BS. With my 2nd wife of 13 years now and I just ordered 2'' drop spring coils for 67 hope that answers your question.
