*1. Height from road surface to fender arch.
*2. Height at factory is the data tested at HKS with the setting of Full Kit. (HKS' recommended setting.)
*3. Adjustable range (However, the lowest value may not be road legal.
Even within the adjustable range, car body, arm etc. may contact. In such case, it will be hard to drive.
Damper oil leakage or any other problems caused by low ride height setting from the factory setting will void the warranty of the product.)
*4. Drivable range that there is no contact of car body or arms etc. (However, change of tire/wheel size may cause a problem.)
Caution). Actual data depends on each vehicle.

Point
The genuine suspension is rather on a soft side, it's made especially so that long distance rides can be handled more comfortably. On the other hand, on a twisty road, it becomes clear quickly that vehicle lacks information from tires, cornering is very unstable and body roll is deep. Also due to very long stroke, rebounds might take time to settle.
With S-Style L, we used even the 3rd row seats and tested the ride quality. We have tried to minimize the harm done to comfortability. With new stroke setup, road information is translated clearly, handling improved and controlling the car became much better. Although the car itself is big, cornering now feels more stable and vehicle behavior more predictable.
This kit utilizes ID65 straight springs for both front and rear.
