At Cygnus Performance we have specialized in high-end, custom coilover sales since 2006. Truthfully, we have never been big fans of lowering springs. Most lowering springs make ride quality considerably worse than stock, they cut the life of your factory dampers in half and many of them also make handling worse. The majority of lowering springs on the market are designed to do one thing – Make the car lower. Unfortunately you end up significantly compromising the experience you have every time you get in your car if you buy lowering springs that do not have proper R&D behind them.
We have tried many different lowering spring options over the years. Unlike our competitors we don’t sell 10 different lowering spring brands. We sell what we believe in, and we sell what we know will get our customers excellent results with ride quality, handling and OEM shock longevity. There is only lowering spring brand that we can wholeheartedly recommend and stand behind which is Swift.
From our own in-house lab and real world testing we can confirm that Swift actually takes the time to do proper R&D which is not easy with lowering springs. Both factory stroke and factory damping force must be accurately measured. Exceeding the limitations of the factory dampers when it comes to either of these metrics will result in a myriad of potential issues. Blown shocks, bottoming out, harsh ride quality, bouncing and oscillation just to name a few.
Swift has shown a unique ability to perfectly optimize ride height, spring rate, spring stroke and progression. This can’t simply be done with perfect R&D though. The best R&D in the world only gets you so far if there are issues with materials or manufacturing practices. Swift happens to also offer the highest quality springs in the world in general. We have been selling them with our high end custom coilovers since 2006. We have had a digital spring rate tester for more than a decade. Swift is absolutely our brand of choice when it comes to linear coilover springs. No spring offers more consistency, less distortion or better longevity.
High quality coilovers are always going to be the ideal way to lower your vehicle. They are always going to be the best way of improving handling and/or ride quality, but of course high quality coilovers are not within everyone’s budget. That leaves you with two basic options if you want to lower your car. Low quality, overseas coilovers or lowering springs. In our opinion it makes no sense whatsoever to spend time and money making something worse than it is now. That is exactly what you are doing when you replace your factory dampers with cheap coilovers. If high quality coilovers are not within the budget, keep your factory dampers and lower your car with high quality lowering springs instead. Swift is the best option in the world, and if you purchase Swift lowering springs from us you’ll receive a $120 voucher which will discount the Swift spring upgrade on any of our coilovers should you decide to upgrade your suspension in the future!
We spend no money on advertising. We invest heavily in getting you the best possible deals, and we put our time into providing you with the best possible service. If you have any questions about Swift Springs or anything else to do with your suspension we are here for a lifetime of support both before and after the sale!
