XAIR PERFORMANCE VT TO VZ PROGRESSIVE RATE LOWERING KIT
VT to VZ Commodores with stock suspension traditionally sit a little higher in the front than the back so have that sagged rear end look. The front tyre to guard gap from factory is huge which takes away from the look of the car especially when larger diameter aftermarket wheels are fitted. Bring your Commodore ride height down to where it should be!
All our Progressive Rate Lowering Springs feature a softer top section to allow for and soak up all the small bumps and undulations which are part of NZ roads. As the shocks compress the spring further the stiffer bottom section comes into play reducing body roll and improving handling especially during hard cornering. Ute and Wagon are supplied standard with a Heavy Duty Rear Spring.
Stage 1 : Front drop 25-35mm, Rear Drop 15-20mm - Perfect for leveling out the car without compromising driveability or ride quality. Still able to drive as per normal without having to worry about scraping bumpers up driveways etc so is perfect if you're using your car as an everyday driver.
Stage 2 : Front drop 40-45mm, Rear Drop 30-35mm - The lowest you can go with Factory Shocks creating a tight tyre to Guard gap all round. A slightly stiffer ride than factory yet still comfortable and easy to drive every day. Note : Non HSV Sedan, Ute & Wagon require replacement short shocks for Stage 2 as the springs are not captive.
Stage 3 : Front drop 45-55mm, Rear Drop 40-55mm - If you want your VT to VZ Commodore on the ground then this is the kit for you. Includes 4 x replacment short shocks.
We recommend a Wheel Alignment after lowering and use the experts at Advantage Pukekohe for this. They get the car to within factory specs wherever possible to ensure perfect driveability without compromising tyre wear etc.
When installing the Front Springs / Coilovers we also recommend replacing the Front Top Strut Mounts and Bearings as these are common for the Bearings to fail and the Mounts to Split. These come as a kit and can be fitted with no extra labour cost as the Strut Assemblies are already Apart.
Note : If using aftermarket wheels with a more aggressive offset or wider tyres the car will require a rear guard roll.
Note : HSV models come down to the same final heights but in actual measurement will be a slightly less drop than above as they are already lower from the factory. Will also fit same generation Monaro & HSV Coupe as well as WH, WK, WL Statesman, Caprice and HSV Grange Models. Please specify your model once ordered.
