Performance Lowering Kits

Most stock original cars, even sports cars, are compromises. The manufacturer has to build them that way because for every enthusiast like you, there’s a poser who just wants to look the part. You want to be able to push your car hard in the corners; the poser is more interested in a comfy ride. But you don’t have to settle for factory concessions, you can get better handling, acceleration, and braking, and a firm but comfortable ride, with a lowering kit.

Besides the improvement in performance, a lowering kit will also enhance your car’s appearance. Many cars have so much gap between the top of the tires and the fenders you’d think they were built for off-roading. With a lowering kit, you’ll lose the gap and get a lower, ground hugging, aggressive stance that will work with the factory tires and wheels, but really look awesome when combined with a Plus-1 or Plus-2 wheel and tire package.

We aim to provide our customers with the finest Performance Lowering Kits the industry can offer, which is why we accept no compromise when it comes to the quality. Created by the most reputable names in the industry, such as Belltech, Eibach, KW Suspensions, Hotchkis, Bilstein, KSport, Skunk2, Air Lift, ReadyLIFT, Koni, ARK Performance, BBK, Spec-D, aFe, Lakewood the Performance Lowering Kits we've gathered for you feature precise design and everlasting durability.

Lowering kits range from an economical set of coil springs that will reduce ride height 1-2”, to hi-tech coilovers that are adjustable for ride height, spring preload, and damping. Coil springs can be used with your OE shocks and struts, but upgraded performance components should be used for best results. The coil springs are usually progressive, which will give you a firm, but comfortable ride with the desired stiffness for cornering and braking. More comprehensive kits include shocks and struts, bigger sway bars, and more. Some kits may even include parts like caster and camber plates, to facilitate wheel alignment.

With a lowering kit installed, you’ll love your car’s new “flush stance”. But as great as it looks, once you feel how it performs you won’t be spending much time looking at your car, you’ll want to be behind the wheel. Cornering will improve because the stiffer springs will reduce dive, and since the car’s center of gravity is lower, you’ll get less body roll. Braking will improve because of less nose dive and you’ll have better acceleration because the car will squat less when you floor it. Your car will be more responsive and react more directly to your input regardless of the situation, with greater predictability.

Still another benefit from installing a lowering kit is improved aerodynamics. Lowering your car makes it closer to the road, reducing its wind resistance, for higher top speed at the race track and increased fuel mileage on the highway. If you take your car to the track, you’ll appreciate the higher top speed. Fuel economy, on the other hand, probably isn’t a high priority when you drive a performance car. But considering how fast the needle on your gas gauge drops when you push your car isn’t it nice to know you may get a few more miles per gallon when you’re just cruising?

If you are using your "daily driver" car or truck for occasional towing duty, you are looking for that ideal sweet spot where the weekday commute is comfortable and quiet, and the weekend trailering feels solid and secure. In other words, you don't want to vehicle to feel too "stiff" during the week, nor do you want it to ride "soft" when pulling a trailer.
Very often we don't even realize what a crucial role a car's suspension plays in providing a safe and comfortable ride. The system maximizes the friction between the road surface and your vehicle's tires, ensuring steering stability along with responsive handling.
The very first thing to know about timely suspension system diagnosis is that the stability and steering control of your vehicle and, what is more important, your safety on the road depends on how often you make it. Automotive suspension belongs to one of those car systems that are constantly exposed to high loads and thus are prone to wear and tear. Most...

2004 Chevy Trailblazer | Posted by Kevin | (Loves Park, IL)

Great delivery and great product at a fair price. CARID did a very nice job with their write up on this system. Other sites did not have as much information making me a little leary on what I would be getting exactly. I had full confidence in CARID after shopping around. Fair price with the free shipping
