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
