Acura MDX Ground Clearance

Ground clearance (also acknowledged as Ride height) defines the length between the lowest spot of the vehicle’s undercarriage and the edge of the tires’ touch with the level surface. Still, the manufacturer of the model might apply slight tricks to the universal method to claim enticing number meaning the actual stretch from the shock absorbers, the engine oil pan or the muffler to the track is briefer than detailed in the printed manual.

It is no wonder because many people seek an increased ground clearance to eradicate problems when parking near the high edges or riding through the bumpy area. The definite ride height of the model varies between 185 to 208 mm based on the year of production and equipment. Note that a heavy- loaded vehicle will inevitably drop by about 1 inch of ground clearance.

Happily, the model ground clearance can be uplifted with the help of spacers for shock absorbers to help the car sit higher off the ground. While enjoying a higher model, you lose a bit of the erstwhile balance and maneuverability driving fast. By contrast model ground clearance can be shortened in the interest of sharpened handling and stability.

There a number of ways to increase ground clearance. When it comes to lifting or lowering your Acura MDX you can choose between bigger tires, a leveling kit, coil spring assisters, coilovers, airlift suspension, suspension lifts, etc.
