Changing the suspension of your car or truck may be physically “easy” and one with bolting on parts but the math and physics involved is tough stuff. The engineering side of things is also a complex balance of making sure that the “look” is not compromising the clearance of components, the functionality of the vehicle, or anything of that nature. Yes, we all know a guy who torch cut his coils and lowered his car. How did it ride? How long did it last? Did he end up knocking the oil pan off of it by going too low? All stuff that has happened and continues to happen when all considerations are not made.
Companies like RideTech are in the problem solving business and that’s what this video is about. This video is about the top five things that people jack up when they are lowering a vehicle and interestingly they are basically the top five things that RideTech aims to fix with each and every one of their components. From coil over shocks to control arms and complete four link suspension systems, these guys are in the business of making it look good and making it all work better than it did stock.
If you are thinking of lowering your car or truck, watch this video and take in the don’ts before you DO!
