Lowering Spring are for lowering the CG which helps in cornering. It concerns road everywhere. It Lowers the hight of the ride by maybe 50mm - 70mm, depending on the spring. Its just by changing the spring and using the stock absorber.

By your msg. I think you don really get the picture right.....
Shocked

Hi Keong1981, thanks for the information. Me is still learning about car suspension system.

By the way, questions:

1. If lowering the spring, will the car lower to the ground?

2. If yes, then for some high bumpers, then will hit the car or not?

3. You mentioned about helps to do cornering, since the lowered spring, does it hurt the absorber?

lowering spring...means u wanna cut off a few inches of it? and yeah, if u do so it will lower ur car, but then ur suspension srping to absorber ratio is different already....it will put alot of stress on the absorber becouse there is lesser force feedback....

high bumps, go slow la...go one wheel by one wheel..if many ppl, ask every one to get out before goin over bump.

yes, cornering better...but have in mind that momentum and inertia takes place, having a car too low and when u turn left, ur right side fender or bumper will touch against the wheel and road. thats why the car came stock like this, for wheel clearance...

if really wan to lower car, choose softer spring coils la...if got cash, change to air bag suspension - which is pneumatic, air go in and out, need compressor....adjustable too.....

value brands to look for are Eibach springs, Bilstien and AEM...
i hope i cleared up alot of questions...

chinhai8, after 3 months driving my accent AT, I start to feel the car is not as stable as it used to be, feel pretty bumpy when pass through potholes.

It just like what you posted previously.

I am not so sure whether this has to do with tyres. After I changed my stock Ducaro to Falken tyres last year, i feel the car is good in suspension again.

According to some reviews on the net, Ducaro is good when the tyres still have 50% or more "buga" and after that is bad.

Since you just drove 3 months, I am not too sure whether this will applicable to your cause of problem, IMHO, this is my speculation, the best still should be check by the experts.

very good. japanese tyres are soft and road sticky, give you better handling and cruising needs, its just that the price is abit higher.

i am using DN-614 which is rather quiet but less sporty, ST-115 is sporty but less comfortable. others like ZE-512 or ZE-326 are abit lower range.

you can check this forum for review of Falken for more information.
