Hyundai Accent Ground Clearance

Ground clearance (also perceived as Ride height) determines the space between the lowermost edge of the auto’s undercarriage and the gap of the tires’ contact with the level surface. But, the maker of the model might exploit a few tweaks to the established procedures to make catchy result hinting the valid distance from the shock absorbers, the engine oil pan or the muffler to the ground could be lower than stated in the official leaflet.

It is no surprise because practical consumers strive for an increased ground clearance to bypass headache when parking near the high edges or driving through the rough environment. The definite ride height of the model fluctuates from 130 to 160 mm in relation to the year of creation and equipment. Take into account that a heavy- filled vehicle will surely sacrifice about 1 inch of ground clearance.

Luckily, the model ground clearance can be gained with the help of spacers for shock absorbers to get the auto rest higher off the ground. While relishing a higher model, you sacrifice a fraction of the former balance and maneuverability driving fast. Contrarily model ground clearance can be lowered in order to get improved handling and stability.

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