Coilover suspension kits are usually dampers (shock absorbers) with adjustable bases "threaded" so the spring base can be adjusted up or down to set the ride height, hence the vehicle can be corner balanced (corner weighted) accurately.
At East Coast Suspensions, we only recommend & sell KW, Bilstein, H&R & Koni types of coilovers with a fixed lower mounting.These products are of premium performance and have a range made for street use and a range made for race and motorsport use.Hence the street range is legal, acceptable for our roads and has a long term life.The brand such as KW Suspension, have the valving adjustment available for both compression and rebound control individually (compression being the inward stroke & rebound being the extension stroke).

Wheel Alignment

  Wheel Alignment means adjusting the angles of the wheels. The purpose of these adjustments is to reduce tyre wear, and to ensure that the vehicle is travelling straight and true (without "pulling" to one side). Alignment angles can also be altered beyond the maker's specifications to obtain a specific handling characteristic. An example is for Motorsport applications, where the angles can be adjusted well beyond "normal" for a variety of reasons.

Corner Balance from East Coast Suspensions thumbnail

Corner Balance

  Corner balancing means adjusting the car so there's an equal amount of weight on all four tyres. A ‘properly corner balanced car’ will have better handling, braking, acceleration & traction control on the road or racetrack. If a cars ‘corner weight’ is ‘unbalanced or ‘out of balance’, the vehicle will not feel stable in turns or at speed & may even lift a tyre off the road, which may cause the vehicle to leave the road and cause a serious accident.
