Ride height lowering
Ride height is the amount of space between the base of an automobile tire and the underside of the chassis; or, more properly, to the shortest distance between a flat, level surface, and any part of a vehicle other than those parts designed to contact the ground (such as tires, tracks, skis, etc.). Ground clearance is measured with standard vehicle equipment, and for cars, is usually given with no cargo or passengers.
- Aerodynamics: A lowered ride height can reduce drag by lessening the wind flowing underneath the car.
- Traction and Handling: Lowering can increase grip from the tires and improve handling.
- Reduced Rollover Risk: A lowered suspension reduces the centre of gravity.
- Ride Comfort: Stiffening the suspension by lowering can increase ride comfort.
And of course, we don’t have to explain the advantages of raising the suspension.
