Watch A Tesla Model 3 Get Lowered With T Sportline Springs

AUG 20 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 4

Tesla Model 3 lowered one inch for a fantastic look and improved ride quality.

Tech Forum explains why these T Sportline lowering springs for the Tesla Model 3 are really the happy medium. These particular springs drop the car about one inch all the way around.

Other companies offer springs that lower the car a bit less, but oftentimes, it may be hard to tell that any work has even been performed, both in terms of the sedan’s look and ride quality. On the other end of the spectrum, you can choose to lower the car more drastically, but be prepared to deal with bottoming out, scraping the snow, etc.

The video goes into even more detail about T Sportline’s philosophy when it comes to lowering springs. The company suggests multi-rate springs in the rear of the car with single-rate springs up front. The goal is balanced overall ride comfort and performance. All-in-all, Tech Forum says these springs lower the car just enough while providing a cushioned ride.

The springs are for the rear-wheel-drive Model 3 and start at $350.00, although at the time of this writing, there was a sale for $299.00 This doesn’t include installation. Tech Forum paid $528.00 to have the springs installed.

I kind of hate to admit it, but the one thing I would like to do to my Volt is RAISE its stance by around 3″. Forget lowering it. Getting in is ok, but getting out is a pain for this old dude. Better situational awareness, too, if only by a small amount.
Barring that, I guess I can wait for the Model Y.

Yup, me too. That and I hate grinding the front in parking lots.

It would be interesting to see if there is any improvement in efficiency on the highway being 1″ lower. If there is would it be greater than the slight efficiency loss of having the more performance oriented wheels and tires.

My assumption is a greater loss of range in the creation of aero drag plus increase of friction to the pavement from the wider tires.

Naturally, aero drag becomes more of a factor over 40-50 mph. There is that advantage gained by reducing body height but its overshadowed by the range cuts by the tires.

In the end, he’ll lose range. I’m thinking 7-10%.
