Coilovers are a popular choice for lowering ride height. Lowering your car will lower the center of gravity, which reduces weight transfer and keeps vehicle weight more evenly distributed on the wheels and tires. You’ll have less body roll for improved cornering, less dive for better braking, and less squat for enhanced acceleration. Lowering ride height also reduces the gap between the top of the tires and the fenders for that desirable “flush stance”. Unlike lowering springs that reduce ride height by a predetermined amount, coilovers are adjustable, so you can fine-tune the height at each wheel. The way the coilover changes height varies according to design. Some use a threaded collar at the base of the spring, while on others the length of the shock body can be changed at the bottom.
