A coilover shock is a shock absorber with a coil spring encircling it. A coilover shock absorber has the option of adjusting the ride height and stiffness. A coilover suspension is an excellent solution for your vehicle. The ability to adjust the coilover shock absorber to the stiffness you prefer is an option that needs to be taken advantage of.

For lowered vehicles, coilover shocks are a great solution as you want the shocks to be quite stiff.

Coilover shock absorbers are usually a kind of twin-tube gas charged shock absorber around which has been mounted a large metal coil. Though common on motorcycle and scooter rear suspensions, coilover shocks are uncommon in original equipment designs for vehicles, though they have become widely available as aftermarket add-ons. Coilover shocks for cars have been considered specialty items for high performance and racing applications where they allow for significant reductions in overall vehicle height, and though high-quality aftermarket options with wide sturdy springs may provide improvements in vehicle performance, there is dispute over whether or not most aftermarket coilover shocks confer any material benefits to most drivers and may in fact reduce performance over original equipment installations.
