- Keep or improve a smooth comfortable ride
- Increase handling, control, and performance
- Lower the vehicle within the each vehicle’s usable stroke
Most end users understand and had experiences with the typical harsh and uncomfortable ride from lowering springs. Performance on lowering springs is often overlooked by manufactures because most lowering springs are design to cater appearance oriented customers. The results are usually bumpy corning that cause a decrease in traction, or excessive worn shocks cause by lowering the vehicle beyond the usable stroke. The problems with most lowering springs are quite simple. First is due to the lowering amount, and second, the coiling design of the spring.
So what is the difference between Swift and other manufactures? I always thought that springs are just springs?
We utilize a less coil design to create a much more responsive spring. With fewer coils, we can completely eliminate the chances of coil binding and increase the amount of usable stroke. Also, fewer coils on lowering springs will create a faster reaction speed towards any road conditions. So instead of skipping on the harsh road surface, the spring will reacted to the road surface as needed.
Swift developed each Sport Springs application based on each vehicles unique characteristic. So a Luxury car will keep its luxury ride, and sports car will handle like a sport car.
- Drop (Front): -1.0 inches
- Drop (Rear): -0.8 inches
Installed on 2007 Forester XT, stock struts with new top hats. Really improved the handling and the ride. The car is a bit lower to the ground, and feels tighter when turning. The springs handle bumps great. I've gotten compliments from my usual passengers.
Good springs very comfortable I wish the drop was a bit lower but works great for daily driving. I had them on a wrx and I still got understeer. I have them on my forester now and springs got rid od the floating feel.
Removed the last bit of lean from the car, it handles much more like an STi now, but still very comfortable for daily driving and not too much of a height drop. I’m very much looking forward to my next autox event!
Wasn't looking for a huge drop, and these springs are perfect. Threw in a new set of shocks while I was under there and my WRX rides better than I thought possible. Only gripe isn't one of the springs but of the body of the car, the rear appears to sit lower than the front even though the body is level.
fast delivery and good springs.
