Now that fair weather is just around the corner, many drivers are starting to focus on the performance and handling capability of their sporty cars. After upgrading tires, a vehicle's suspension is the next area of improvement that yields great results for the money. For most, a set of lowering springs from Eibach may be the answer.
Benefits of lowering springs:
- Lower center of gravity
- Reduced body roll
- Reduced pitch and dive when braking and accelerating
- Better handling and steering feel
Vehicle performance and handing aren't the only reasons to lower your car. The visual difference in closing some of the factory wheel gap can be very appealing.
Some people are hesitant to lower their vehicle due to concerns about ride quality, alignment problems and even compatibility with their shocks. The truth is that ride quality and proper alignment can be maintained with a set of high quality springs such as Eibach's Pro-Kit Spring Set. They're designed to be compatible with a vehicle's Original Equipment shocks.
