The route that you take depends on whether you want to stiffen your spring rate or leave it where it is and by how much you want to lower the vehicle. Most aftermarket spring companies will offer a lowering spring that has a much higher than stock rate spring, which leads to a harsher ride and can lead to the tire not being able to maintain contact during rapid undulation. I went through several sets of springs on one of my older cars trying to find just the right combination, but the aftermarket eluded me. I ended up junkyarding springs with the same diameter, similar free winding angle, and slightly larger wire diameter, then cutting them to the proper length to get the rate that I wanted.What about for lowering? I think I might prefer it lowered than lifted.
Thanks for the heads up - this will be my first vehicle with any advanced sensing features like this so they aren’t really at the top of my mind.I just saw this feed so I thought I would chime in...
The MOST Important thing to consider when modifying the height with either a lift or lowering kit, or even a wheel diameter change is the ADAS Features on the vehicle. If you raise your vehicle 2 inches or worse lower it, your ADAS sensors are not looking at the target field they were programed to search. That can be anything from cars, pedestrians, to other objects like bicyclists.
ADAS Calibrations are relatively new and the industry is growing rapidly. If you make a height mod, or pull any body panel that has an ADAS feature on it to do work on it (paint, wrap, etc), you will most likely want to check and see if you will need to recalibrate the vehicle.
Is the second picture with it lowered? Or did they announce if there will be a lower kit?Update:
+35mm liftkit will drop roundabout July from Delta4x4 www.instagram.com/delta4x4.electric/
with for example 265/60R18 tires you'll receive +5.75cm ground clearance!
roundabout -35mm liftkit will be developed from Loder1899
First real world pictures and offroadshots of the lifted Version will drop roundabout mid June!
I´,m the photographer at both Companies and can provide up to date information if you need some more information
Also if you got wishes like wide body kits for the Mach-E or spoilers or Roofracks or something else which doesn't exist so far - feel free to write it down here or send an DM to one of the Instagram Accounts.
We´ll check if that is possible then
and @MSP Mach E - true! safety first!! thank you for providing all those Information
if you hover over the picture you see the Name of the picture.Is the second picture with it lowered? Or did they announce if there will be a lower kit?
