It’s fairly common practice these days to lower your truck. But, modifying your truck’s suspension can come with risks if you’re not careful. And cosmetic only lowering can lead to damages to components in your car. But, you can find quality aftermarket suspension kits that make the lowering process easier and safer for you.
Here’s a quick overview about lowering your truck and finding the best lowering kits in Canada.
What’s the main reason most of us lower our trucks? For the style and visual impact of course. Yes, a lowered truck comes with a more sporty and stylish look. But, it also has practical uses as we note below.
When you reduce the distance between the chassis and the ground, you also reduce the roll centre of the truck. The advantage of this is that the weight transfer from one side of the truck to the other is improved. With less weight transfers, you get better traction because the pressure is distributed more evenly on all four tires.
A lowered truck creates better aerodynamics with less air passing under the vehicle. This means you will experience less drag when driving and this will directly enhance your vehicle’s performance as well as improve your fuel economy.
This comes with the reduced roll and improved traction. You can often get a better handling of your truck if it’s at a lower ride height.
Lowering can be done using springs or coilovers. How they achieve the end result of the lowered truck is different. Some people may try quick fixes to lower a truck such as changing the spring or torsion mounting points or shortening the coil springs. Unfortunately, these approaches, though cheap, will ultimately result in damage to the truck and can even leave the truck unsafe to drive.
So, it’s important to lower your truck the right way using a quality lowering kit designed for aftermarket suspension modifications.
