How to lift the suspension ?
average ground clearance whether the hatchback, sedan, wagon and coupe is 14-15 centimeters.In most cases, it is enough if you have a fully functional car's suspension, that, given our roads and difficult operating conditions, is quite rare.Therefore, many are beginning to think about how to lift the suspension of the car over the road, thereby increasing the ground clearance.
Front suspension Front suspension
modern car often is a suspension type McPherson.That is, we have a top cup rack mounting, which in turn is attached to the body, and the lower arm.Strut is a complete unit, combined with the spring.And many people are interested in how to raise the front suspension strut in a similar design?Due to the spacers on the mounting cup, replacing native rack mounting studs longer.Spacers made of metal.The thickness of the spacer will depend on how much you want to raise the machine.Shape of the spacer is the same and which has an upper cup.It is either oval under two studs or three studs under a triangular or square if four.The length of the pins will also depend on the thickness of the spacer.As a simplified version of such a spacer can use some spacers on each pin.If you have such double wishbones and shock applied instead of the rack, then made a special U-shaped spacers under the lower eye shock absorber.As a result of manipulation of the front part of your vehicle can significantly rise above the road.Be lifted up, and the center of gravity, which may adversely affect vehicle handling.The car becomes more rolls in turns.But on the other hand it is possible to fearlessly and most importantly safe passage deeper or higher obstacles.For some, it is more important than speed cornering.
How to raise the rear suspension?This can be done the same way with the only difference being that you need to consider the thickness of the spacer relative to the front axle.Not only that there must be a happy medium in terms of aesthetic appearance of the car.When there is harmony in height.Thus even increase in ride height rear part impact on further handling and safety.Because of the highly disproportional large lifting height is displaced castor front suspension.Castor - is the angle of inclination with respect to the front pillar and the vertical relative to the front and rear vehicle parts.Strong bias Castor forward impairs vehicle handling and maneuverability.
