What is AP Coilover Suspension?
Historically coil over suspension has been used for high end performance cars and racing cars. It features a spring that can be adjusted via a rotating threaded collar that moves the base of the performance spring lower or higher to optimise the ride height.
This will improve the handling and with the addition of a 25-30% stiffer fixed rate damper the AP Coilover suspension system will firm up the ride quality. This adjustable lowering feature of the AP Coil Over system can be moved from 30mm to a maximum of 90mm (depending on application).
Can I lower the AP Coilover Suspension system myself?
Yes very easily, it is as simple as jacking the car into the air letting the weight off the wheels then turning the adjustable blue coloured collar or platform as is referred to. When lifting the AP coilover platform up the height of the car will be raised, when lowering the AP coilover down, the height of the car will lower.
How will it affect the handling?
The car will feel stiffer to driver and more planted to the road, it will react more positively to steering inputs and will suffer less body roll in the all too important twisty bits. AP Coilover suspension systems are not a full on harsh track / race suspension kit they are designed to maintain a good quality of comfort whilst uprating and delivering a true sporting ride.
