Ride height adjustable lowering springs and improved shock absorbers improve the road handling of the popular Fiat 500.
Particularly with these compact and light cars there is a massive gain to be made compared to the standard suspension, often more then with the “supercars”. On the front, the 500 uses Mc-Pherson struts with a thin 22mm rod which is loaded with the braking and cornering forces. Intrax replaces this with a hollow “upside-down” strut with a hollow rod of no less then 40mm. This improves stiffness by almost a factor ten, dramatically improving both comfort and steering behaviour. The shock absorbers are replaced by units with an adjustable damping, enabling everybody to find a setting to suit him (or her).
The rear shocks are replaced by adjustable units which improve the road handling. In addition, comfort is increased thanks to a damping mechanism specifically designed for the 500 and the European roads.
The springs are shorter improving the looks and lowering the centre of gravity and roll centre. Front ride height is adjustable by winding the spring seat to the desired height, so you can choose the perfect compromise between looks, road holding and ground clearance.
