Hello, I'm new to this Forum and new to Maserati ownership, and very much looking forward to it.

I want to lower my '02 Maser Coupe just a bit, maybe a 1/2". Stock 18" wheels and tires and the skyhook option. One Dealer said it's complicated especially with Skyhook, but I've read that it's easier with Skyhook? Another place said I had to replace the springs, yet another said it's easy, just lower the car with the factory adjustments on the springs. That one sounds good to me, if that is doable, how long should that take.

Has anyone here done the lowering on their car, and are there any negative effects? Just trying to figure this out. Thanks in advance for your input.

The skyhook suspension makes it very easy to lower the car. Without skyhook you would have to change out the springs. Skyhook makes the suspension adjustable.
It should really only take about an hour per wheel, but afterwards its important to have the car aligned.

But what about lowering a non-Skyhook equipped car

I agree entirely with VT DMC. Lowering a Skyhook-equipped car is easy. In fact, not only do you get the benefit of lowering, but you also compress the stock springs as I understand it, which tightens up the handling as well.

BUT, I have a non-Skyhook equipped car. The sport springs LeoNardo makes only work with Skyhook-equipped cars. Is anybody aware of an after-market lowering kit for our cars? I have a gentleman at Beverly Hills Auto Design looking into it. I'll keep the group posted.

By the way, my car is at Shelton Ferrari/Maserati in Lauderdale getting the Tubis installed. I CAN'T WAIT.

Ciao,

Frankie P
