This model of adjustable suspension offers you the choice between inboard springs (OEM style set-up), or coilover springs (spring around the shock absorber). Generally lighter and easier to adjust, coilover springs are recommended for tuned vehicles, equipped with a roll cage or used in motorsport. For a standard vehicle used on the open road, D2 recommends keeping the inboard springs setup. Note that between a coilover assembly or a separate assembly, the spring rates can be different : this is a difference in technical design due to the shape of the springs, the design of the vehicle's axles, or even the position of the original springs on the chassis. In feel and use, the separate and coilover models are identical, and show no significant difference in driving performance or comfort.
