VW Caddy lowering

VW Caddy lowering

Lower VW Caddy on lowering springs, coilover set or Airride air suspension?

Only lowering springs on standard dampers looks nicer and it’s for easier selling of the car and to lower it as cheap as possible. Screw sets are available from cheap to expensive. This also applies to air suspension or Airride, which a VW Caddy can also keep very practical. As well from cheap tot expensive there are solutions with air suspension.

 

Lowering springs

Lowering with shorter springs on standard shock absorbers is the stupidest thing you can do. The dampers were not made at all at all. Brands can claim though, owners of cars can be of the opinion that it still drives well. Again the dampers are not developed at all, it will drive well in the beginning, after a while you will notice that the suspension is no longer optimal and can even leak on the turns. Simply because the noet is suitable for using a standard damper for reduction.

 

Coilover sets

Coilover sets are very suitable for correctly reducing a VW Caddy. The dampers are developed to even go very low. It is noted that the drive shafts go from diagonally to horizontally, so the angle becomes smaller. The drive shafts can cause light vibrations. In fact, they should be shortened something, then the pressure in the gearbox and to the wheels is less and then you no longer have the light vibrations. If you go too low, the long (right) drive shaft can touch the chassis. Can have a piece taken out of it, notching, that prevents the drive shaft from getting damaged and even slightly crooked. Lowering is nicer, can drive finer, but you hand in on load capacity. With wider wheels and tires you will be able to lose more weight in the back and ride with a trailer then the same applies that will no longer be as heavy as with a completely original chassis is the case. There is plenty of choice in coilover sets, think carefully what you want and adjust your purchase to it. If you want to retain or even increase load capacity and a trailer is important to you, consider air suspension or airride, although that is a lot more expensive to purchase.

 

Airride or air suspension

Most sets are equipped with camberplates. If this is not the case, the drive shafts can cause light vibrations. In fact, they should be shortened slightly in that case, then the pressure in the gearbox and to the wheels will be less and then you no longer have the light vibrations. If you go too low, the long (right) drive shaft can touch the chassis. Can have a piece taken out of it, notching, that prevents the drive shaft from getting damaged and even slightly crooked. So with Air Out you can therefore completely remove the air pressure from the balls 0 bar, the Caddy then lower very low if the rims and tires specifications allow it. If the right beam in the front of the right -hand drive shaft is not provided with a bite out, notchen, then the Caddy will rest on that drive shaft and the axle can count and with a very low ride on air suspension you can touch and damage that drive shaft on the way or damage it Can slightly crooked and that can also cause vibrations. However, there are much more benefits. You retain your load capacity, you can even raise the back while a trailer that normally collapses a little, in addition it is nice to drive and set the riding height as desired and even change on the way if you come across a high threshold for example.
