Acura RDX Ground Clearance

Ground clearance (also understood as Ride height) computes the distance from the lowermost gap of the auto’s undercarriage and the point of the tires’ touch with the horizontal surface. Though, the maker of the model might exploit slight cheats to the common measure to promote appealing result meaning the valid gap from the shock absorbers, the engine oil pan or the muffler to the ground could be shorter than specified in the issued characteristics.

It is no wonder since choosy people pursue an increased ground clearance to avoid problems when parking near the barriers or driving through the uneven terrain. The accurate ride height of the model varies from 159 to 208 mm in relation to the year of creation and equipment. Keep in mind that a well- stuffed car will beyond doubt miss about 1 inch of ground clearance.

Happily, the model ground clearance can be raised by using spacers for shock absorbers to make the car remain higher off the ground. While making a taller model, you abandon a small chunk of the original stability and maneuverability driving fast. On the other side model ground clearance can be lowered in favor better handling and stability.

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