whats the best lowering springs for my 06 ls
Eibachs and coilovers are your only choices.
My setup of Eibach Pro springs and LSE Sport Shocks have been on the car since 2004. 245/40x18 tires. Left Front 25.75" Right Front 25.875" Left Rear 26.25" Right Rear 25.875"
This guy right here is the one who made me fall in love with vivid red Havnt seen you around in awhile
You are right, I have not been around the forum in a year or two. Too busy being retired.
Must be nice! Still working for that day
For some of us it ain't what it's cracked up to be.......
Can u put side by side picks up I'm thinking about changing springs but not sure if its worth it
Any one can explain the suspension system to me seems I can pull out my driveway in reverse from a cold start and it will scrap the top part of my driveway but after riding when I pull out the rest of the day I have no scrubb also I notice from my first gen and now my second if I turn the car off and sit inside for a few minutes I can hear a sound witch I'm not sure but seens to be air being released or something. I'm not stating this as a problem I'm almost positive its normal I'm just trying to understand what it is it will make me feel a little better about lowering it if I'm aware of what's going on a little more kinda scared now it rides well enough from factory hate to have it fup because I couldn't leave well enough a long
Yeah man same hear
Welll........ As I got tired of scraping driveways, speed bumps and other assorted obstacles around here, I reinstalled the stock springs. Sure, the car looked FANTASTIC, but I just got tired of scraping-up the lower front bumper! I still have to hit my mother-in-law's driveway at an angle to prevent scraping; and her driveway angle isn't that sharp!!
The ride will be stiffer and sharp road defects will cause a bit of a jolt. I believe that sound is the climate control. Both my '06's do it. Joe posted somewhere here what it is, but I don't remember exactly.
Possibly because the fluid in the shock absorbers expand when heated and contract when cooled. While the car doesn't ride on the shocks, the shocks do exert a pushing force which will lift the suspension a bit. Combine this with the rest of the suspension being cold and condensed vs heated and expanded, plus cold tires have less pressure than hot tires, can be raising the car just enough to clear vs not quite able to clear the driveway. Between these three things, I can see the curb height of the car being raised a half inch overall. Easy enough to check with a tape measure, measure the car from the ground to the top of the fender before you go anywhere, then measure again when you get where you're going.
And on that noye lowering is out of the question for me. I will become a terrorist because the city would have to pay for the damage from all these pot holes in Atlanta if I have to make them
What's the best struts to use? 2002 lincoln ls v8 I'm going to install Eibach lowering springs and hated the way Monroe's ride
Factory...... If you can find them.
Thanks. They're isn't many options out there for us. Guess I'll have to go with motor craft
i'll add mine on here as well - i see this is kind of an old thread... may still help someone. cut factory springs ( 7 coils on springs ) factory replacement shocks 18x8 rims 255/45 tires 25.5" front 26" rear
How can you get a slight drop, (1" to 1 1/2") and still have a decent ride quality, not jolt? And are Swift springs a decent ride quality and not to low?
You had them right? But I though you said they were too low? What about the Swift Springs ride quality?
Too low for my 85 year old mother in law. I liked the height and the ride was excellent. I know nothing about the Swift Springs...... In fact, never heard of them.
Who has pics of their ls with 235/50/17's with or without Eibach coils. I found a new set of rims.... just would like to have some kind of idea how they look? I do plan on installing the pro springs as well. Thanks.
Without is easy to find. That's the stock Sport tire size. Here's a result from a quick "lincoln ls eibach 17" search. There are other pictures, but I know these are 17s (stock). it's probably somewhere in this thread already, especially since it's already on LVC. Let's try linking it as an attachment View attachment 23354 In the likelihood that didn't work, http://www.lincolnvscadillac.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=23354
Would ya look at that, it worked. The 5-digit attachment ID in the URL threw me off. New attachments have 9-digit IDs. I also realized it was easy to find the thread it was posted to http://www.lincolnvscadillac.com/forum/showthread.php?19397-Eibach-Pro-kit-Lowering-Springs
