A lot of performance-minded folks lower their vehicle’s suspension ride height with the hopes that it will improve its handling. But simply lowering your car doesn’t always deliver the better cornering and road-hugging capability that you’re looking for. In fact, in certain scenarios, lowering your car can actually make it handle worse.

The tech department at Summit Racing gets a lot of questions about suspension tuning, so they created this handy 101-style video to show you some things to consider before lowering your car, truck, or SUV to improve its handling.

They discuss key topics like body roll, center of gravity, and more. They explain how suspension components like aftermarket sway bars, coil-over shocks, and control arms can help improve handling. Give it a watch — hopefully, it’ll give you a good idea of what’s involved to make your car’s suspension perform the way you want it to.
