Q: I put lower HR springs on my car and while I really like the look, the ride is incredibly harsh. The tire pressures were kept at 38psi. I was wondering if there is another kind of adjustment that should be made to the suspension when installing these springs.

A: When you lower a car, the springs are usually stiffer. Otherwise the car would bottom out. If you lower a 5200 pound vehicle, you really get a stiff suspension. There is nothing you can do about it other than go back to stock.
