PROFESSIONAL GRADE PERFORMANCE LOWERING SPRINGS FOR AUTOMOTIVE ENTHUSIASTS
Performance lowering springs deliver enhanced vehicle performance whilst maintaining a safe, yet improved ride quality. Lowering springs don’t have the inherent harshness of coil overs, lowering your vehicle to a pre-set rate that supplies a cleaner look to your vehicle. Lowering springs will also help to lower the center of gravity of your vehicle, providing better cornering ability, steering response, and driver satisfaction.
ALDAN AMERICAN’S LOWERING SPRINGS KITS
Aldan American Lowering Springs are designed and tested by our engineers to improve the handling and appearance of your car without adversely affecting its overall ride quality.
Our progressive rate springs reduce squatting under acceleration and improve overall cornering capabilities. In addition, Aldan American’s lowering springs decrease your car’s center of gravity for a noticeable improvement in handling.
Aldan Lowering Springs also improve your car’s appearance, lowering the ride height by 1.5-inches, closing the gap between tire and fender for a more aggressive appearance.
Developed and manufactured in the U.S.A., Aldan American’s lowering springs are CNC-formed from high-tensile, cold-wound steel to deliver a consistent, smooth ride. Springs are then immersed in a high gloss black finish formulated to help preserve the life and longevity of the springs.
Aldan American Lowering Springs are a 100% bolt-on assembly that does not require cutting or welding to install. Plus, every Aldan American Lowering Spring comes with Aldan’s Forever Guarantee.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long does it take for lowering springs to settle?
The amount of time it takes for lowering springs to settle can vary depending on a number of factors, including the specific springs being used, the vehicle’s weight and suspension design, and the amount of driving the vehicle sees.
In general, it’s normal for the ride height of a vehicle to settle slightly after installing lowering springs. This is because the springs need some time to compress and adjust to the weight of the vehicle. In most cases, you can expect the springs to settle within a few days to a few weeks of installation.
During this settling period, it’s common for the ride height to drop a little bit more than you might have anticipated. This is because the springs are compressing and the suspension is adjusting to the new setup. However, once the springs have settled, the ride height should remain fairly consistent.
It’s worth noting that some manufacturers recommend a break-in period for new lowering springs. During this period, you should avoid aggressive driving and try to avoid large bumps or potholes that could cause the suspension to bottom out. This can help to ensure that the springs settle properly and provide the best possible ride quality and handling performance.
How do lowering springs work?
Lowering springs work by replacing the stock springs on a vehicle’s suspension with shorter, stiffer springs. The stock springs are designed to provide a certain ride height and level of comfort, but lowering springs are specifically designed to lower the ride height of the vehicle and improve handling performance.
When a vehicle’s suspension is lowered, the center of gravity is lowered as well. This reduces body roll during cornering, which can improve handling and stability. Lowering springs also reduce the amount of suspension travel, which can help to prevent bottoming out over bumps and uneven terrain.
The spring rate of lowering springs is typically higher than that of stock springs. This means that they are stiffer, which can provide better handling and reduced body roll. However, stiffer springs can also result in a harsher ride quality, as they transfer more vibration and shock into the cabin of the vehicle.
