2009-2014 Honda Fit GE8

In terms of short race courses with curves (think autocross), the Fit is a pretty nimble car. But with all cars, there is improvement when you use aftermarket suspension. The main things people will change are stiffer springs, more responsive shocks, coilovers to lower their ride height, or new rear sway bars. Below we see what’s available for the GE8.

Coilovers are shock absorbers designed to be able to adjust ride height, and specifically to improve handling. Ride quality may suffer depending on the suspension options selected as lowering a car can mean a bumpy ride. The main purpose of these devices is to reduce body roll and increase corner speed.

If you pick the right suspension components, you will make your car feel like it’s on rails reducing body roll, and increasing your cornering abilities!
