Look, we get it. Getting low in the club might not be your style, but riding low on the street certainly is. There are two schools of thought here. On one side you’ve got the all out performance guys who need to hunker their suspension down to make their cars corner like they’re running on rails. Then in the other camp, you’ve got the low and slow crowd who put more work into appearance and being unique than outright performance. If these two groups ever collide it will be an intense battle of tire smoke and vape clouds the likes of which we’ve never seen.
Either way, we’re all here for one reason. Bringing our cars, trucks, and SUVs down closer to mother earth by way of suspension lowering kits. Depending on what you’re looking to accomplish, you can go a little more mild (and affordable) with just a set of good lowering springs -- or you can go big with spindle drop kits or coilover lowering kits.
Looking for a suspension lowering kit for your truck? Belltech are the kings of pickup truck and SUV lowering kits, by way of lowering springs, spindle drop kits, leaf spring flip kits, and shock mount extensions. These kits will not only lower your truck, but give you added stability and confidence around turns and in emergency maneuvers -- which is where big and tall trucks and SUVs start to get a little scary (just search “moose test” on YouTube to see what we mean).
On the performance side, a nice set of lowering springs and shocks can go a long way towards helping your cornering performance for canyon carving, autocross, or track days. If you want to really go down the rabbit hole, though, coilovers are where the real transformative performance comes in. One of the big advantages with coilover suspension lowering kits is the flexibility and tunability they give you, as most of the time they are height adjustable at least, and some even have adjustment for dampening and rebound. This means you can tune your suspension exactly the way you need for your setup and driving style.
For some good brands to look out for, H&R, Tein, Eibach, and Pedders all make great quality lowering springs, and then KW is one of the kings of coilover lowering kits. Belltech like we mentioned rules the pickup truck suspension lowering kits and and drop kits world, and you can never go wrong with Bilstein or Koni for all around performance.
