Suspension Kits

Most ‘stock’ vehicles, as designed by the manufacturer come with two main components that make up the suspension system. The first of these is the coil spring. Without a suspension system, whenever a vehicle interacts with a speed bump or any other vertical obstruction, the vehicle’s tires will come into contact with the main body frame. This will not only be uncomfortable for the occupants, but it will also cause friction between the tires and the body which will reduce performance and cause damage. The coil spring in a vehicle absorbs the vertical motion through expansion and contraction to keep the tires away from the body frame when bumps are present.

The problem with springs is that they will move up and down until the energy that was absorbed is dissipated. This is not ideal for a vehicle in motion. It would mean that every bump will cause the vehicle to bounce up and down which will affect the effectiveness of the steering system. This is why the spring is supplemented by a shock absorber, or another type of damping system. The shock absorber takes in the excess energy in the spring and through its hydraulic system, absorbs it. This effect is what is referred to as ‘damping’. Working in tandem, the spring system protects the vehicle from vertical motion while the shock absorber stabilizes the vehicle.

Why is the suspension system important?

Comfort
Imagine, for a moment, that every time your vehicle interacts with a bump, the tires come into contact with the body. This would make for a very uncomfortable ride. Even if the road has no bumps, the momentum generated by braking and turning is often expressed vertically within the car. Motor vehicle transport would never be feasible without the presence of a suspension system due to the discomfort that all travelers would be subjected to.

Friction
Cars can only move thanks to the friction that is generated between the tires and the road. For this friction to be achieved, the tires have to be in constant contact with the road. Without a suspension system absorbing the vertical motion, tires would be constantly losing their grip on the road, making the car impossible to drive.
Steering

The shock absorbers in the suspension allow the springs to work without the car losing its stability. This is particularly important when a car hits a particularly nasty bump and during cornering. When the steering system does not work, a car loses control and this brings about numerous safety concerns.

High-performance suspension kits

High-performance suspension kits come in the form of ‘coilovers’ which incorporate both the spring and the shock absorber into one mechanism. With the coil spring and the shock absorber being conjoined, they work better as a system. The two main advantages of using these high-performance suspension systems are: they allow the vehicle height to be adjusted and they can use stiffer springs. The benefits of these features are explained below.

Lower ride height
The height of the car determines its center of gravity. Since coilover suspension kits allow the car to be lowered, you get a lower center of gravity. A lower center of gravity means that the car is more stable during cornering. While this comes at the expense of some comfort, your car will be able to safely corner at high speeds. Another benefit of a lower car is that there is monomial weight transfer when cornering or braking. You can corner at higher speeds with a coilover suspension. Also, during acceleration and braking, the weight distribution is stabilized resulting in better performance.

Stiffer springs
With a coilover suspension, the springs can be made much stiffer. This reduces the body roll. Body roll occurs when one part of the vehicle ‘lifts’ during cornering due to expanding springs. When it is reduced, you have better handling during corners which is desired for motorsports.
