The life of an exhaust system
Suspensions are undeniably one of the most important aspects of your car, it is the key to a comfortable ride and keeping you in control of your ride. There are plenty of different modifications that can be done to suit your needs so let's look into that today.
To start off, one needs to understand the purpose of suspension systems. Suspensions are a term that gets thrown around but often overlooked because well the fact is most of the time, you don't see it. Tucked behind your tyres, it is when you're on the road that you'll notice just how much they affect your daily drive.
They are in place to keep your tyres in contact with the road while providing comfort at the same time but dilemma ensues for the manufacturers as if they design the suspensions to push the tyres down, this causes passengers to feel any vibrations and uneven surfaces much easier thus providing a stable ride albeit not a very comfortable one. So manufacturers tend to stick in between and settle for a good balance between the two; comfort and stability.
The Springs in a suspension is what sets the tone, supporting your car's weight and movement. While you're maneuvering over uneven terrains, they keep your car leveled by the compression and extension of the springs. The shock absorbers comes hand in hand, damping any shock or vibrations that passengers might feel otherwise.
Part of your suspension also includes the Anti Roll Bar, which shifts the movement of the wheels while stabilizing your car. All these aspects are gravely important and it also affects many other parts such as the wear of your tyres, handling, alignment.
Many bimmer owners will decide to lower their car for better stability and even just for aesthetics by switching up either just the springs or both the springs and absorbers. Eibach is one of the key players in aftermarket suspensions, providing straight forward kits for different needs. Check out the video below to learn more about Eibach -
At the very core are the Eibach Pro-Kits Performance Spring These are performance springs designed to work perfectly with your stock absorbers. It utilizes Eibach's progressive spring technology to lower your car up to 40mm, providing greater traction and high performance handling. It also helps to reduce body roll during corners, squat during acceleration and nosedive under braking as well. A good upgrade for anyone and everyone.
But if you're an enthusiast and looking for more of a race car handling and even more aggressive lowering, the Eibach Sportline Performance Springs would be your choice of springs. It lowers up to 50mm, 10mm more than the Pro Kit. It's for someone who's looking for maximum street performance with the lowest possible drop without compromising the quality of your ride.
Now, those are just the springs alone. Taking it to the next level, you're going to want to upgrade your absorbers with the springs, together! Eibach has teamed up with Bilstein, a market leader in absorbers to create the perfect suspension kits. Inclusive of Bilstein B12 absorbers and a choice between the Eibach Pro Kit springs or the Eibach Sportline springs. The springs and dampers are engineered to work in harmony.
Bilstein B12 established a gas pressure technology, now an industry standard - resulting in more reliable shock absorption and added safety as compared to traditional oil shock absorbers which when put under extreme stress can lead to oil foaming, causing shock fading and reduced damping power.
The B12 Pro Kit is a great starter kit for anyone who believes driving dynamics and performance are important, who prefers extra safety as well as appreciating a look of performance without sacrificing ride quality. A good balance, shall I say.
Whereas the B12 Sportline is again, like the springs themselves, more suited for a higher level sport-performance ride and more lowering than the pro kit while ensuring safety as always.
On the other hand, some might want to lift their cars for greater comfort day to day and maybe a light off road experience. The Eibach Pro-Lift-Kit Performance Lift Springs is just what you need. It is designed to provide a suspension without the use of coilovers or spacer lifts. Lifting up to 30mm, creating more ground clearance allowing for moderate off roading.
To complete the upgrade, one should not neglect the anti roll bar. Upgrading it will allow you to fine tune your car's handling characteristics. Eibach's Anti-Roll-Kit is manufactured from cold-formed steel alloy for precision performance, finished with a long lasting red powder coat finish, the kit comes complete with all mounting hardware. It reduces body roll through increased design stiffness as compared to stock bars, this results in increased handling and cornering grip.
