If you were to lower your vehicle, lowering springs could be used. This is the first step that you should take when handling your vehicle in this way. Most Lowering Springs can come as a standalone upgrade, requiring you to touch nothing else on the car.
This could be just one portion of an upgrade package. For a reasonable amount of money, you are getting access to sizable improvements.
What is the benefit of lowering your costs?
As mentioned in our blog, if you decide to lower your car, you are lowering its centre of gravity.
Lowering cars makes it less likely that you will roll your car over on a tight corner. This means that the weight transfer goes to the outside of your tyres, and will not be on the inside tyres. This gives you more grip on the road, for all four tyres, which gives you a better connection to the road’s surface.
If you are on an S-bend, for example, you could be changing directions quickly, and you will need time to settle the car back down as you change directions once again.
When your car is lowered, it can improve its appearance. Arch gaps, however, are not very good to look at at all. When you drop your car and reduce the arch gaps, this will look much better. Your wheels will also look much larger, giving you a more aggressive and sporty appearance.
How Do Lowering Springs Ride?
Many people wonder if they can apply this to a van, just like a car, and will also wonder how it will ride later on. It’s difficult to answer this question for every vehicle, especially since every vehicle is slightly different, which means there is a fair amount of guesswork involved when coming to a conclusion.
eBay special springs might be a little bit cheaper, and although they may sell very well, the engineering of the springs, especially for different vehicles, can be very different. The quality of the ride once the springs are installed can be questionable, and this will determine your level of comfort.
If you don’t have types lowering springs fitted, it is unlikely that it will be an uncomfortable ride or may need you crashing your vehicle.
Eibach’s are very similar to the field of original springs.
Lowering Springs designed for fast cars will likely tip the balance toward being more firm. In fact, they can have a definitive impact on the secondary ride of the vehicle. This is how it handles small bumps on the road or even a rough surface.
It really depends on the condition of your suspension as it is right now. If you have good shock absorbers, or rubber bushes, both of which are designed to help you buffer the road, that can be beneficial. If these are worn down, you will notice that you will have stiffer springs as you drive your vehicle down the road.
How long can you go with Springs?
There are some limits to what is achievable when using a spring when trying to combine this with your shock absorber. Using mild Lowering Springs will amount to a 30mm lowering. If you decide on sportier springs, these can be 60mm. The type of car that you are driving will affect all of this. If you have a newer vehicle, the lowering on offer will be less. You may want to consider going to a website, that allows you to enter details about your vehicle, and see what they currently have available.
What if you currently have a sports suspension installed?
If you are already driving a GTi, S3, RS, or AMG, or if your vehicle has an AMG-Line, M-Sport, S-Line, R-Line, or M-Technic installed, this vehicle may already be lowered.
