Ground clearance (also famous as Ride height) determines the height between the lowest tip of the vehicle’s undercarriage and the spot of the tires’ touch with the level surface. Yet, the manufacturer of the model might implement some tweaks to the typical process to promote sweet estimation meaning the unbiasd gap from the shock absorbers, the engine oil pan or the muffler to the track could be slighter than specified in the official leaflet.
It is no wonder cause choosy consumers search for an increased ground clearance to rule out hassle when parking near the barriers or running through the uneven landscape. The explicit ride height of the model differs from mm based on the year of creation and equipment. Remember that a heavy- packed auto will inevitably miss about 1 inch of ground clearance.
Fortunately, the model ground clearance can be lifted with spacers for shock absorbers to help the vehicle remain higher off the ground. While making a higher model, you lose a bit of the former stability and flexibility driving fast. On the other side model ground clearance can be lowered in order to get upgraded handling and stability.
There a number of ways to increase ground clearance. When it comes to lifting or lowering your Subaru Crosstrek you can choose between bigger tires, a leveling kit, coil spring assisters, coilovers, airlift suspension, suspension lifts, etc.
