Coilovers vs Lowering Springs
One of the first popular modifications car enthusiasts around the world do to their vehicle, is getting rid of “wheel gap”. This term refers to the unsightly gap between the top of your tire, and the fender of your car. To close this gap, people often look into aftermarket suspension solutions to assist. This page will guide you through the differences between the two major options people usually go with; coilovers or lowering springs.
If on a budget, lowering springs are often a popular choice for a few reasons. Quality lowering springs can be had for sub $300 and often directly replace factory springs on oem struts. These will give you a conservative, yet noticeable drop while not breaking the bank. Some cons of lowering springs can often be found in the adjustability. By only doing lowering springs, you will be at a fixed height. To go lower or higher, you will have to purchase new springs every time.
If your pockets are a little deeper for car mods, a coilover option might be the right move for you. Unlike lowering springs, coilovers replace all of your oem suspension components (struts, shocks and springs). Coilovers free up space in the wheel well thanks to their slim design. This creates space for many different aftermarket wheel and tire setups. Coilovers, such as our ISC N1’s often have adjustable camber plates built in to allow for fine tuned adjustments. Other features found on our coilovers that you would not find with lowering springs alone, are adjustable damping to dial in the ride quality as well as height adjustability to dial in the look of your ride. Coilovers can also be fine tuned for a better ride, to get more low, or to make your car track ready. You can also swap out small parts, whether it be springs, or even dampers. There are so many avenues coilovers can take you down. From daily driver, to professional racers or drifters, coilovers will be the best, most versatile option for your vehicle.
