Honda Accord Ground Clearance

Ground clearance (also perceived as Ride height) measures the length from the lowermost spot of the auto’s undercarriage and the edge of the tires’ touch with the horizontal surface. Though, the manufacturer of the model might exploit some tricks to the normal program to advertise sweet number meaning the legitimate stretch from the shock absorbers, the engine oil pan or the muffler to the road might be lesser than mentioned in the formal characteristics.

It is no surprise cause choosy consumers hunt for an enlarged ground clearance to eliminate problems when parking near the bumps or running through the rough area. The accurate ride height of the model deviates between 135 to 170 mm depending on the year of production and trim. Keep in mind that a heavy- stuffed auto will easily sacrifice about 1 inch of ground clearance.

Luckily, the model ground clearance can be lifted via spacers for shock absorbers to help the car rest higher off the ground. While building a taller model, you abandon a piece of the original balance and maneuverability driving fast. Contrarily model ground clearance can be lessened in favor better handling and stability.

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