You have the freedom to modify the car’s appearance and parts to improve its performance. The most common way to modify a truck or car’s appearance is by lowering springs and coilovers. Although it looks sporty, a lowered vehicle can also be a problem. Avoid lowering your vehicle if you live on bumpy roads with high speed bumps. There are many ways to lower your vehicle. You can either install lowering springs, or coilovers.
What Are Lowering Springs?
The most fundamental component of a suspension system is the lower springs. They lower the vehicle’s height, as their name implies. Pre-installed springs may be already installed on your car’s suspension. However, the lowering springs will only be a few inches shorter than the stock springs. When you attach them to your shocks, your vehicle will lower. Lower springs are often an option for those who don’t care about their car’s handling. The drive will become a little stiffer by installing decreasing springs. There are many brands of lowering springs:
- MSS Suspension (VW. Audi. Porsch).
- KW Suspensions
When setting up lowering springs, it is important to avoid rubbing. You should replace your tires if they start rubbing immediately after installation. Although these springs can be used with stock shocks, professionals recommend that they be coupled with efficiency shocks in order to maximize their effectiveness. These springs are an excellent choice for people who have a tight budget and need to reduce their car or truck’s adjustability.
What Are Coilovers?
A person who is not familiar with the world of performance enhancement might not be able to see much difference between coilovers and lowering springs. These springs are in the shape of a coil that is attached to the shock. Coilovers can be adjusted in height. There are many types of coilovers on the market. The ones that adjust have a cup attached to their bottom which you can turn to alter their height. You should know that these coilovers won’t work with your car’s shocks and stock suspension. The coilovers will need to be replaced. These are some of the most well-known coilover brands:
- AST Suspension.
- ST Suspensions.
- KW Suspensions
Coilovers can adjust the ride quality, which is not possible with lowering springs. Coilovers are generally a little more expensive than springs because they offer many advantages over springs. Coilovers can be useful in all seasons. You can adjust the height of coilovers in different seasons.
Lowering springs will be the most cost-effective addition to your car, but they won’t allow you to make any changes to the vehicle or affect your ride quality. Although coilovers can be expensive, they are easily changed and can be adjusted to give you the ride quality you desire. Contact us to get Lowering Springs and Coilovers installed today!
