Q. What brand should I get?
A. We sell all the quality brands so that ultimately leaves the choice to you. Our goal is to provide enough information for you to choose the optimum performing suspension parts for your driving needs. In general, you get what you pay for. On shocks/struts, the ability to adjust damping (stiffness) or ride height comes with a substantial additional price and you have to decide if you’ll be taking advantage of these features. On springs, lowering effects vary and you pay a little more for a progressive spring rate that gets stiffer as the suspension is compressed further.
Q. How far can I lower my car?
A. Most cars it’s 30mm to 50mm.(One to two inches). We only sell the most reputable manufacturers to ensure safe, reliable products that won’t damage other suspension components. Some manufacturers have listings for "race" springs which may be lower, harsher riding, and harder on the vehicles other components.
Q. Do I need camber kits if I lower my car?
A. Whenever you lower a car with shorter springs, it creates negative camber. This has some benefits for handling but can cause the tires to wear more towards the inside instead of right down the middle. Many cars do not have enough adjustment to return the camber to original factory specifications. On most cars, if the lowering effect is 25mm to 35mm, and you keep the tires well rotated, you should get the full life expectancy of the tires even with the negative camber. Otherwise camber adjustment kits can be purchased for many applications that make it possible to adjust the camber closer to the original specifications.
