Lowering Clamps

Anyone had any experience with lowering clamps? They sound dodgy, but there also very cheap way to lower a car. Anyone have any idea of the damage, or wear these can cause?

They are dodgy. I have no experience with them, because I'm not that stupid.

Re: Lowering Clamps

Yes basically that is what he is talking about.

I would not use them at all. WHile it may be cheap way to lower the car. The degredation to your suspension and how it performs can get you killed.

Just my 2 cents

Re: Lowering Clamps

Don't bother with the clamps when a set of King springs will set you back $140. I put mildly lowered heavy duty springs with Koni shocks, and they have been a treat.
