What are coilovers?

What are coilovers?

We like a smooth, comfortable ride and no vibrations when driving a car. We prefer a car with excellent steering control and good dynamic stability over any other vehicle. These factors are directly or indirectly related to the suspension system. A vehicle with a soft, smooth suspension will perform better than other vehicles in all important respects.

MOSTPLUS offers high quality coilover kits. This allows you to perfectly connect to the coilover system. You can enjoy a comfortable driving experience in all road conditions.

What are coilovers?

The name "coilover" comes from the combination of the spring "coil" and the shock absorber "over". A coilover is an automotive suspension device that combines a shock absorber and a coil spring into a single unit. The coilover replaces a vehicle's original suspension system and can be adjusted to change ride height and suspension stiffness. Coilover kits are commonly used in high performance vehicles because they offer better control and handling than stock suspension systems. A coilover kit consists of a shock absorber and a damper with a coil spring around it. Coilovers are divided into adjustable and non-adjustable.

Coilover Features and Benefits

  • A coilover is a type of suspension system that uses a single spring wrapped around a shock absorber. This spring improves the performance of the suspension system by increasing its damping or absorption capacity.
  • Adjusting the height of the coilover has a significant effect on the vehicle's road holding and handling. The center of gravity can be raised or lowered to improve cornering stability.
  • Their versatility means they can be adapted to different driving styles: track performance, everyday driving, or even ride comfort.
  • Coilovers allow drivers to improve the overall performance of their vehicle, providing more responsive and agile driving.

How do I find quality automotive coilovers?

You need to know several things about your car before buying custom coilovers. Here are some of the most important considerations:

1. Suspension Type

There are several types of suspensions: MacPherson strut, double wishbone, multi-link, and rigid axle. Each type of suspension has its own design and requires different shocks. Make sure you know what type of suspension your car has before buying coilovers. Make sure the sway bars are designed for your make and model of vehicle. Sway bars incompatible with your vehicle may not fit or perform well. MOSTPLUS Suspension makes it easy to find sway bars that are compatible with your vehicle. When in doubt, you can always contact our qualified sales team.

2. Brand Reputation

The make and model of your car are the most important factors when purchasing custom coilovers. Look for coilovers from reputable brands that are used to producing quality suspension components. Read reviews from other drivers and research the brand's reputation.  Suspensions vary from car to car, and coilovers that work for one car may not be compatible with another. Make sure you choose coilovers that are specifically designed for your make and model. MOSTPLUS has a long history of satisfied customers and quality products that speak for themselves.

3. Quality of Construction

Check the materials used in the construction of your coilovers. Quality shocks should be made from durable materials that can withstand the rigors of high-performance driving.

4. Driving Style

Your driving style can also influence the type of coilover you choose. If you race your car on the track or participate in motorsports, you may need coilovers with stiffer springs and more aggressive damping settings. If you use your car for everyday driving, you may prefer coilovers that offer a more comfortable ride.

5. Adjustment

Look for shocks that offer a wide range of adjustments, especially in ride height and stiffness. The ability to fine-tune the suspension can improve performance and handling.  Before purchasing coilovers, you should have an idea of the ride height you want to achieve. This will help you select coilovers with spring rates and damping settings that match your needs. Keep in mind that lowering your car too much can affect handling and performance. At MOSTPLUS, our many options and configurations give you the flexibility you need.

6. Warranty Information

Check the manufacturer's warranty. A quality coilover should come with a warranty that protects against defects and premature failure. MOSTPLUS offers a solid warranty on all purchases. You can buy with confidence!

7. Price Range

Coilovers can range in price from a few hundred to several thousand dollars. Be sure to set a budget and choose a set that meets your needs without breaking the bank. While price shouldn't be the only factor to consider, it can be an indicator of quality. Beware of very inexpensive stabilizers, as they may be of inferior quality and may not perform as well as more expensive options. We are very active in monitoring for inferior copies of MOSTPLUS products, and we encourage you to be vigilant as well. High-quality shock absorbers require high-quality materials and good engineering, which is not the case with cheap, mass-produced shock absorbers.

By keeping these factors in mind, you can choose the right custom coilover for your car and get the ride and handling performance you want.
