Our Tesla Model 3 Lowering Springs have been shipping out over the last two weeks. Some community members have already installed them. We started this thread so members can share their photos of their install and feedback for other members.

Here is the description from our website:

Our Sport Lowering Springs were developed for the Rear Wheel Drive Model 3 only. We do not recommend or advise purchase if you have an AWD or Performance Model 3 on order.

Our Model 3 Sport Lowering Springs improve the ride quality of the Tesla Model 3 by increasing spring travel for increased comfort. Simply put, our springs will give your Model 3 a less “stiff” ride.

The ride height is lowered by approximately 1" (25mm). Improve the look and comfort of your Tesla Model 3 with our Sport Lowering Springs!

This product requires professional installation.

Made in USA.

I have an AWD on order, and would like to look into lowering springs. What is the plan there? Will you develop a set to work on the AWD? Are you just waiting to test this set on it? Is it just not going to be compatible with lowering springs?

We plan to develop lowering springs for both AWD and Performance models.

Great. Thanks. Another question. I live in Colorado. Any thoughts on where I might be able to find an installer here, once I have them? I know getting springs installed shouldn’t be a major thing, but I am going to be picky on who I will let pick my Tesla up off the ground.

@warrior15r Initially, I thought it was the same but after a few days I've had the opportunity to test it on the highway, on regular commuter roads in NJ (i.e. like the moon) and even on unpaved roads at slow speeds. The steering feel is the same, still sharp, but, I'm sensing that the ride is more forgiving. It's not softer nor harder but I think it's lost some occasional jiggle that happened from time-to-time. I think it's gone from Audi S4 to BMW M3 if that makes sense - it feels more compliant yet more together.
