History shows most drivers install performance lowering springs to enhance the look of their vehicle. Fitting a vehicle with larger wheels and lower profile tires can create a visual illusion that makes a vehicle with stock suspension appear lifted because of the gap seen in the fender well between the top of the tire and the vehicle’s bodywork. While the overall diameter of the lower profile tires doesn’t change significantly from the OE tires (when properly plus-sized tires and wheels are installed), the illusion occurs when the tire’s sidewall height is equal to or shorter than the visible gap between the edge of the fender and the top of the tire. The illusion is eliminated by reducing or eliminating the gap seen in the fender well.

But there is also another side to lowering your vehicle – function. Along with the visual improvement a reduction in ride height offers comes an enhancement in vehicle performance. Performance lowering springs reduce the vehicle’s center of gravity, aiding stability. Lowering springs use increased spring rates engineered to cope with the reduction in travel, while still preventing bottoming of the suspension under most conditions found during normal driving. The increased spring rates help control side-to-side body roll during cornering, as well as the pitch and nosedive experienced during spirited acceleration and braking.

A vehicle’s suspension is comprised of many parts engineered to work together – including springs, dampers and anti-roll bars. Added flexibility can be afforded by using performance coilovers or airbag suspension. Believe it or not, air bag suspension has come a long way from yesteryear's old technology. Many autocrossers use airbag setups on their track cars. The beauty of this flexibility is added comfort, on-the-fly adjustability, and the uber-cool factor of being able to set your ride height dependant on your mood....or speed bumps and driveways. Whatever way you choose, you cannot deny that altitude adjustment is a must  for your vehicle - whether that is going up or down - we have what you need to get you there!

  • PARALLEL 4-LINK WITH PAN-HARD BAR (1.50" BARS)

In many applications, such as late model trucks, this configuration avoids interference between the upper bars and the OEM gas tank. The parallel 4 link is also slightly easier for the casual installer to visualize and install because there are fewer bar mounts to deal with... the frame brackets and axle brackets carry both upper and lower bars. (TIG weld)

  • 2007-11 E90/E92 335
The above values were developed for a vehicle with the following specifications:
 19” x 8.5” front wheels with 245/35-19 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires
 19” x 9.5” rear wheels with 265/30-19 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires
 Dinan Low Compliance Bushing kit
If your vehicle is configured differently, you may alter the target values as needed for
your situation. Note that proper bumpstop clearance is vital, and Dinan’s values should
be maintained if at all possible – even a 1/8” change will be noticeable! More bumpstop
clearance improves comfort, but also has a negative effect on handling. Less bumpstop
clearance results in a harsh ride. Bumpstop clearance is adjustable using the included
packers, and/or by altering the ride height.
The front camber plates can be installed in one of two configurations:
 The “STREET” configuration allows for a camber range between -1.2° to -2.5°.
Dinan recommends this arrangement for most situations, including moderate
track use.
 The “RACE” setup allows for a front camber range between -1.9° to -3.2°. This
amount of negative camber is very aggressive and is only recommended for
TRACK USE ONLY. Using these values on the street will negatively impact tire
longevity.
Please decide on one of these two configurations before proceeding with installation.
The exact adjustment range available will vary slightly from car to car.
Three alignment setups are detailed further in the instructions.
 The conservative alignment is for street/highway use.
 The moderate alignment is for spirited “country road” use.
 The aggressive alignment is for track use.
