I agree. Indeed you have nailed it on the head beatlies. What makes more sense than to have her replaced before people get the "image" of the two different Suzanne's on tv every night.
What's interesting is that Fuzanne's husband and handler Alan Hamel probably was instructed to do the "hard-nosed" negotiation that got her kicked off the show. I wonder if Fuzanne is aware of that to this day?

And, maybe John Ritter threatened to talk about it ...
John collapsed while working at Disney Studios in Burbank in 2003. He was brought to a hospital across the street where he died. They said the cause of death was a heart defect that had never previously been diagnosed. uh huh ...

Charlie Chaplin once entered a Charlie Chaplin lookalike contest and lost.
TV Land airs Three's Company episodes where I live at 4am during the weeknights. I had been catching every episode for awhile and as it approached the time period in which the replacement took place, they continued with episodes from a different season altogether.
They were at the end of 1977, still with the real Suzanne, and approaching 1978 where the switch happened during that summer. I thought for sure I'd get a chance to see the obvious differences but before the season in the winter/spring of 1978 began, they switch to episodes beginning in the fall of 1981, when Fuzanne only appeared on a few shows before leaving the show because of a contract dispute. Even then the differences were OBVIOUS.

I agree with the commenter above. Three's Comapny also plays here late at night on a certain channel, and I passed it yesterday. I watched this time, and SS had a VERY heart shaped, small face. I wish I wrote down the episode and noticed the year date on the menu. It was the episode where the brunette roommate has a hotel florist over for a business dinner, and through a misunderstanding, Crissy ends up on a date with the fellow.
SS's face was heart shaped, meaning the jaw came to a point sort of like Reese W. or Jennifer Aniston. Her hair was pulled up off of her forehead, so no bangs. Also her face
I just stared becasue it was SS's voice, eyes and midface, but not the squarer jawed, prominent faced SS I had always seen, even compared to other 3C episodes.
I don't claim to know anything about people snatching or whatever, just what I see. It was obvious and I invite people to see for themselves.
Suzanne's replacement was obvious. She looked different and sounded different than the real Suzanne.
To hide this, you will NEVER see any episode aired from seasons 1 or 2 featuring the real Suzanne on the same night or during the same time period as an episode from season 3, 4 or 5 featuring the fake Suzanne. For example after airing season 2 they switch to season 6 or 7 and vice versa.
