How do you adjust the springs on a car? I want to get a higher ride height, but the game isn't letting me adjust anything.

I was buying the wrong suspension! No wonder it didn't work.

Big Smile One of the first things I install on my cars is race suspension. The foremost part is purchase though, seems to be a set of rims. Tongue Out

Also, I'm not entirely sure whether you get the visual representation of your ride height changes, but it certainly does change the car however you set it up. Personally, I have all of my cars on the lowest possible ride height. Smile

lowest possible isn't always best possible, to be honest it is quite rare it would be, you have to run with so stiff suspension to prevent bottoming out that it would be like running without springs, axles welded to chassis, which is bad for grip...

And does it affect on apperence... gimme a minute I'll show U some pics...

And mid 70's and 80's way of heavy foward lean (the way I roll on it = Silly tune)

Wow, cool pics. I never even noticed if changing the settings of the suspension even had a visual effect. Nice! Big Smile

Well in most cars that are used in racing, (90's or later euro / Jap) you barely can notice, but take some old car from any reagion, and you will certainly notice. as they have much more suspension travel on stock, so they sit higher on stock, and from that they can also be lowered higher amounts.

That superbee has settings to stand on 6.9 to 9.8 inches off the ground, compared to dodge viper that can sit on 3-4 inches off the ground.
The difference in quite high.
