I frequently talk about lowered cars around my family. I dislike the huge wall gap between the Toyota Camry wheels and the fenders, and often talk about how appealing it would have been if the manufacturer closed up the wall space between the wheels and fenders.
The Wall Gap is extra noticeable on Toyota Camry’s and Corollas.
A family member offered to install lowering springs on my 2012 Toyota Camry SE to help fill out the hideous gap. We looked at springs from CARID and came across the Eibach springs that offer to lower the car 1.5" in the front and 1.2" in the back.
However, another family member warned that lowering the car puts pressure on the axle and may cause premature wear and tear on the shocks.
That saddens me to hear, to be honest, especially that I am offered these springs and the installation for free, and I would finally close up the gap “some” between the fender and wheels.
What’s your knowledge and experience with lowering your car mildly? Does lowering your car moderately hurt the car in a negative way?
Many thanks for sharing your experience, knowledge and advice…
