How does that Ford Mustang or Honda Civic turn more heads than the Lamborghini parked a few aisles away? Its stance is lower and more aggressive. And, the low-to-the-ground styling adds serious street-swagger to your ride, along with impressive handling. By lowering your center of gravity, lowering kits allow you to take corners with the speed of a Formula One racer and experience what it's like to drive with less gravitational resistance.
The stiffer shocks and springs in a lowering kit increase your handling by boosting steering response and reducing rear-end squat and nose-dives. There are many difference techniques to achieve a lowered stance and better handling, including coil springs, leaf springs, spindles, control arms and flip kits.
But, how do you know which lowering kit is right for you and your ride? Consider one very important factor: how low do you want to go? If you're all about enhanced handling, then nothing more than 2 inches is needed. But, if you see yourself slamming it down until your ride barely rests off the road, then a complete suspension revamp is in order. But, being that low comes with a price. Thankfully, AutoTrendz carries the ultimate selection of lowering kits and backs them all with our 1-year guarantee.
