FAQ’s

Some common questions we aim to answer. 

WHY DO QUALITY COIL OVER KITS COST SO MUCH?

A suspension kit, “sport” or “coil over” must be designed and built specifically for the car it is to be fitted to. The characteristics of the valving are specific for the model of car. Cheap coil over kits are not model specific and one damper design can be applied to 20 different cars all of which have differing characteristics, this keeps the cost of kits down. It is also one of the reasons they ride poorly and generally hard. One way to know if a damperkit is not model specific for the application is if the kit comes with a camber plate at the top and screw off bottom brackets. The easiest way to get one shock to fit many cars is to supply a camber plate to adapt one top pin design to fit many cars shock mounting points. Please also be aware that Rose jointed camber plates are noisy. Generally these noises are excluded from the warranty as manufacturers know they will never be able to stop this noise. Also as the bearings wear, the noise gets worse! Expensive coil over kits are model specific and custom designed exactly for the application and this is why they are expensive, they will never come with camber plates as the use of the original mounting is the most desirable way to do it.

WHY DO WE FIT LOWERING SPRINGS?

The most common reason is to make the cars appearance better. Many spring manufacturers will advertise the fact their sport spring makes a car handle better! This is strictly not true as a car lowered with springs and standard shocks, will often handle worse due to the standard shock absorbers being too soft and bottoming out during harsh cornering. The relationship between the shock and spring is of paramount importance and fitting sport springs and no sport shocks is definitely not the ultimate set up. A sport spring is approx. 20 % stiffer than a standard spring and once again needs a shock matched to this for the ultimate performance.

HOW WILL THE RIDE BE IF I FIT A LOWERING SPORT SPRING?

The lowering of a car actually removes valuable movement from the suspension so naturally the car will bottom out sooner than it would at standard height. The factors to worry about are what condition are the standard shock absorbers? How low is the car to be? What length and what material are the bump stops made of? If shocks are standard, and or worn the ride will not be desirable.

WHY DOES THE FITTING OF BIGGER WHEELS AFFECT MY COMFORT?

The major factor to consider is that the Shock absorber controls the unsprung mass of the car and this of course includes the wheel. When fitting a larger heavier wheel the standard shock cannot cope as well in controlling the movement of the unsprung mass. Also the smaller side wall on a low profile tyre is less capable of absorbing the impact of a bump on the road than a larger side wall. 

WILL A SHOCK ABSORBER HELP TOWING A TRAILER OR CARAVAN?

A Koni shock will definitely improve towing , because it offers stiffer slow movement damping. This means the rear of the car is far more stable and the weight of the towed item will not push the rear of the towing vehicle around as much.
