Lowering springs.

I just lowered my 05' GT with Ksport springs which dropped the rear 2" and the front 1.5". Now i feel every little bump! Is this normal for a lowered car and is there something I can do to stiffen the ride a little?

Lowering a car always makes it rougher you always have to sacrifice comfort for sex appeal! Sorry

I lowered mine 1 inch all the way around and I can feel more, now my next question is did you change the shocks and artists or just go with springs! This makes a huge difference too!


It should be a rougher ride but not knocking your fillings out of your teeth bad! If it is I would recommend saving for so shock/struts next!

But man that car looks great love the stance!!!!!!!

If you only added springs, you'll want to get a good set of after market shocks/struts like Koni STR.T to help deal with the different spring rates and height. The factory shocks aren't valved properly to deal with bumps on lowered springs.

The shocks will help a bit but you will still loose comfort
