Can you lower a Dodge Caliber SXT?
My aunt gave me her old Dodge Caliber SXT and while I appreciate it, it really looks like an old lady car. I want to make it look cooler when I drive to school. How much can lower the suspension?
Answer provided by
A lowered Dodge Caliber SXT will look cooler and is actually a pretty popular option for this particular car. Every car is different so how much you can lower your suspension depends on how much space you have between the tire and fender lip—two inches is usually a safe amount.
This type of vehicle modification is pretty affordable, it will cost around $500, depending on the parts and labor in your area. Here are a few words of warning before you make the update to your Dodge: Lowered suspension is cool, too low is not! If your car is dropped too low, you will hit every bump and curb, which is noisy and dangerous *Suspension plays a vital role in your car’s performance, *don’t go cheap on the labor*. Make sure to choose a shop with quality work and good reviews *Not all insurance companies will insure a vehicle with modified suspension. Talk to your insurance agent *before** making any changes
