Best way is to replace the springs with aftermarket units that are shorter and stiffer, it is also advisable to install rubber spaders on the strus as they will bottom out easier, you will be giving up a lot of ride comfort

Shold i need a lowering hangers to lower my car or should it only be shackles?


old post.
this car is coil spring car on all 4 corners all are.
89 to 2004 and newer.
so are sidekicks and Vitara's . same car.
so why not just ask how to lower coil spring cars and not guess at parts name,
they sell kits for this and are not cheap.
why have low rider 4wd, odd that.
The only way to do that is shorter springs,
the car body fits on a real A frame,. so the body can not be lowered ever. nor can a frame,
only the suspension can be lowered.
only samurai cars (jimny) are easy to lower with leaf spring mods.
see? (apples and oranges different they are)
in the old days, kid would , TORCH the springs on coil spring cars.
and as the coils got red hot, the car settled, and the guy on the
oxy torch yells over to owner , this low enough?
fun to watch , no fun to drive,

Right front lower contro arm replacement. 1990 Chevy Lumia Euro


Beat on the spindle that holds lower control to the lower spindle while prying the lower control arm down this will loosen the lower ball joint spindle. If there is a lock bolt take it out. Grind the rivets off in the lower ball joint. The new one comes with bolts to replace it (not rivets)

Can i lower my stock springs on my 2000 mitsubishi galant


Hi:
If you want to lower your car a bit, you need to buy adjustable coil over shocks. They have the adjustment ring on them and you can lower your car evenly, and any amount you choose.
The stock springs should not be modified to attempt to lower your car. There isnt an easy way to do it where your car will end up level and even.

Repair lower ball joints


The front lower ball joints are pressed into the steering knuckle. Once the brake components are removed, the CV shaft nut and tie rod ends can be removed. Remove the front strut bolts, and the lower ball joint nut. Separate the lower arm from the ball joint. Once the knuckle assembly is off the car remove the lower joint snap ring and dust boot. Utilizing a ball joint press (should be able to rent from local parts store) press the joint out of the knuckle. Re-installation is naturally reverse of removal. I hope this helps.
