CONVERSION KIT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is an Air Suspension to Coil Spring conversion and should I buy it?
All Best Racing air suspension conversion kits are designed to replace air springs with conventional steel coil springs, which typically last the lifetime of the vehicle. Suncore Conversion kits are offered as an affordable long lasting solution to replace air springs. For customers who enjoy their air suspension or typically do a lot of towing, it would be best to maintain the air suspension.
Can I install my Coil Spring Conversion myself?
All Best Racing typically advise customers to have a certified mechanic install any of Suncore's products to make sure all other components are inspected properly and the parts are installed correctly.
How many miles is a Coil Spring Conversion Kit rated for?
The coil springs typically last the lifetime of the vehicle, any dampeners which would be also called shocks or struts normally last 40k-60K miles.
Does the Coil Spring Conversion come with installation instructions?
All of Suncore's parts include instructions which are intended to aid any knowledgeable technician with primary installation procedures.
What is the difference between Electronic and Passive?
Electromagnetically controlled suspension dynamically changes the viscosity of the fluid to stiffen or soften the shock or struts dampening characteristics. Passive suspension refers to a conventional mechanically driven shocks and struts that use force to control dampening, these are typically twin tube gas charged shocks and struts.
Will I be able to disable the warning light on my vehicle when I convert my electronic or air suspension?
Every vehicle and part number will have a unique method of bypassing the warning message. There are 3 main ways to bypass: If your kit includes a module it will state it in the listing clearly and be pictured in the main image, the module is designed to communicate directly with the onboard computer. If your kit includes resistors you will simply put the resistors in place of the plug connecting to your shock and this will signal the shock is functioning properly, in this case, the compressor and solenoids will need to be installed and functioning. Another method is relying on the level sensors to send a message back to the suspension module telling it that the suspension is riding at the proper height which will eliminate the need for the suspension to operate (this will require electrical components to be functional).
