While the standard suspension generally puts emphasis on maximum comfort, it is possible to move this adjustment more or less distinctly in the direction of sportiness.
Autotechnics Lowering springs are a successful compromise between comfort and sportiness that, besides moderate lowering, gives the vehicle a sporty touch by increasing the spring characteristic.
By modifying the spring characteristic, the Autotechnics engineers achieved another step towards a sporty adjustment, without a renunciation of comfort.
Lowering springs are mounted on the strut and lower the car between 20 and 60 mm. Lowering springs have a set drop rating and cannot be adjusted to various heights.
Besides lowering your car and providing a more aggressive look, a properly fitted set of lowered springs, with an increased but progressive spring rate, both lowers the center of gravity and stiffens the suspension - resulting in improved handling at some limited expense to the ride.
