Lowering your car is a process that can be carefully performed by Adaptive Automotive. We are an authorized supplier of the leading international brands in the field of lowering systems. No car is too crazy and we are happy to take orders for lowering your car. At Adaptive Automotive, we use a variety of ways to lower your car. These ways are explained below so that you too know how the process works.
To lower your car to exactly the desired height, one of the things we use are lowering springs. These springs are purchased from the highest quality brands such as Eibach, H&R, KW, AP and Airlift. On this page you will find an overview of all the brands we work with.
Through the use of these springs, we can achieve a lowering of 20 to 35 millimeters. Would you like to be able to adjust the height yourself? That is possible! Then we speak of a dynamic lowering and here we use a coilover kit. With this option you can lower the car from 30 to 70 millimeters.
Car Static Lowering
Lowering the car in a static manner works through springs. It is not that we will simply saw off your existing springs to make them shorter, unlike some other, inexpert auto garages. This is a shortcut and is far too risky for the condition of your car. It poses traffic risks and increases the risk of possible MOT rejection.
At Adaptive Automotive, we supply only the very best quality, so we do not cut or grind off springs. When statically lowering your car, we place complete new springs that are shorter than your standard springs. These springs have a special, adjusted characteristic that keeps your car comfortable.
Auto Dynamic Lowering
This special coilover kit allows the springs and shock absorbers of your car to be precisely matched. This provides a dynamic lowering of about 30 to 70 millimeters and is offered in different variants. For example, there are coilovers where you can adjust the compression, rebound, compression and rebound, and there is the option for Dynamic Damping Control where you can choose between Comfort, Sport and Sport+. There is also a Hydraulic Lift System where you can raise and lower the car 45 mm with the push of a button.
Are you looking to lower your car to the maximum and do you think 3 to 7 inches is not enough? Then lowering your car with air suspension is for you! With air suspension you go for maximum lowering and you can adjust the height yourself with a push of a button! There are several options to lower your car with air suspension, about which we will give you more information below.
Car Lowering with Air Suspension
Using a remote control, you can adjust the height of your car yourself if your vehicle is lowered with an air suspension. By pressing a button, you determine the pressure in the air suspension bellows and with this you can lower or raise your car back up. The driving comfort is guaranteed and this is therefore a very good option if you are looking to lower your car but would still like to have the option of turning it back up.
aCTIVE sUSPENSION CONTROL
Active Suspension Control is a system that connects to your original air suspension. With this system, you have the ability to adjust the height of your car through an app on your phone. So this system provides optimal usability and with it you can adjust the height of your car without any problem.
Automatic lowering links are special links equipped with an air or hydraulic suspension system. These links are adjustable, and by using this feature, you can influence your car's ride height sensors, so the car will lower. Also with this option, it is possible to control all this from an app on your phone, making it very user-friendly.
Car lowering pros and cons
In short, there are plenty of ways to have your car lowered, But why choose a car lowering in the first place? There are a number of advantages to lowering your car. For instance, it is often performed because of the appearance it offers to your car. It just looks good when the car is a little lower, which is why you often see it in games and in American culture. In the Netherlands, however, you do not see this style much on public roads.
It also has driving benefits. The center of gravity of your car is a little lower, so you will have better handling. You will go through corners more smoothly and your car will drive over bumps more easily. Perhaps the only downside to lowering your car is that you will occasionally have trouble with speed bumps that are too high. However, this is well solved by taking a flexible system for your car lowering that allows you to change the height of your car with the push of a button. This way, you will avoid damage caused by thresholds and not sacrifice comfort or style.
