When superior handling and driving quality are top of your list, there are few things that hold more importance than the suspension. Old, worn out suspension can easily mean an uncomfortable, bone-crunching ride. Superior quality suspension is so worth investing in because it offers a ride that responds to the road surface so is totally smooth and comfortable.
H&R boasts more than ten years of experience in designing and manufacturing the very best lowering springs money can buy. They are pleased to deliver parts which allow you to experience the comfort and responsiveness you’ve been looking for, offering the perfect first step in improving any suspension. Changing out your old stock springs for H&R Lowering Springs will not only improve the look and comfort of your drive, it will add up to reduced body roll too.
Unlike a large number of other performance parts companies, H&R plans, produces and tests each and every component in their own plant in Germany. For instance, every H&R Lowering Spring is shot-peened for a stronger surface which in itself gives amazing strength and resistance to cracks or breaking. For our customers, this translates into total peace of mind that, no matter how you drive or how rough the road is. H&R Lowering Springs will never let you down – they are completely tough, reliable and the very best out there.
• For over a decade H&R has worked with number one racing teams across Europe
• From the smallest parts right up to the biggest, everything is designed and built in H&R's own German facility
• Every Lowering Spring made is shot-peened for the ultimate strength
There are quite a few modifications that can have an effect on the appearance of a vehicle, but nothing can compare to the slick appeal of a low riding suspension. H&R Lowering Springs can bring down the profile of your vehicle by .25 to 2.5 inches, depending on what you choose.
H&R Lowering Springs give a timelessly sporty look that will never degrade. The excellent 54SiCr6 spring steel that H&R uses means that lowering springs will not set or sag over time which can easily happen with other lowering springs. If this was to happen, stress and damage on the other components in the vehicles' suspension are likely to cause problems. With H&R Lowering Springs, this is never something you’ll need to worry about.
• H&R Lowering Springs can drastically lower the profile of your car
• No sagging or setting of springs over time, unlike some others
With H&R Lowering Springs, you know it’s not just a cool new look you’ll get, but also several boosts to your car’s performance and handling even on the harshest of roads. A lower vehicle means a lowered centre of gravity which equals far better handling when driving. Due to the fact the vehicle is nearer the road surface, it sticks more closely to it giving outstanding responsiveness. The reduced amount of body roll (a vehicle's tendency to pull to the outside of a turn when cornering at faster speeds) is another significant benefit of a lowered suspension. Less body roll is conducive to tighter, superbly compact cornering and better performance from your vehicle when you most need it.
• In addition to incredible looks, there are many performance enhancements to be gained from having lowered suspension
• Less body roll makes for hugging into corners
• Better handling and responsiveness
The excellent customer experience that Werner Heine and Heinze Remmen worked so hard for is still significant in every part of H&R, reaching from the planning phase right up to aftercare.

During the last few years of the 1970s, keen German motoring engineers Werner Heine and Heinze Remmen had started to realise that suspension was merely an afterthought during a car’s design process.
They noted its lack of priority, resulting in the majority of cars on the road suffering poorly built, restrictive suspension systems, and they knew something had to be done about it.
Using their many years of professional and personal experience between them, Herr Heine and Herr Remmen set about creating suspension springs that would offer drivers superior handling and enhanced control on the road. They strongly advocated the idea that car journeys are not just about making it from A to B, but are also about enjoying the ride and being comfortable.
The designers then combined their knowledge and started manufacturing their own unique suspension springs, with the sole aim of showcasing to the motoring world how excellent suspension springs could transform the appearance and ride of motor vehicles. Over time, they continued developing and refining their suspension components according to their own exacting standards, pulling in plenty of interest from the rest of the motor manufacturing world as they went.
Eventually, the work of the enterprising pair won highly sought-after TUV certification - the German hallmark of excellence in engineering. Alongside this outstanding recognition came the dawning of a new age in the European Performance Spring market, with H&R leading from the front.
The high standards and intricate detailing of Herr Heine and Herr Remmen’s suspension systems became a central part of H&R which continues to be the case today. Since the beginning, H&R has focussed all its efforts on being leaders in the field and producing top class motor suspension is at the heart of everything they do.
Founded by Alexander Wilson in 1857 the Vauxhall brand started life as a pump and marine engine manufacturer. It was then purchased in 1863 by keen mechanic Andrew Betts Brown who started to produce travelling cranes and it became known as Vauxhall Iron Works. Towards the end of the century the company diversified and shifted towards car manufacturing in 1903.
Today, Vauxhall Motors Limited is a British car manufacturer, which is a successful subsidiary of the German car manufacturer Opel. All Vauxhall models are identical to Opel, with the only difference being that the Vauxhall name is used in the UK only.
Ranging in size from the ever-popular urban Corsa through to the many variations of Astra, sleek executive Insignia and all-terrain Mokka, Crossland and Grandland SUV offerings, Vauxhall has become synonymous with reliability, style and high build quality. Thanks to decades of new innovation there is certainly no shortage of both old and new models to discover.
Launched in early 2012, the Vauxhall Ampera was the very first hybrid passenger plug-in car to be brought to market in the UK. Powered by the ‘Voltec’ series-hybrid propulsion technology courtesy of General Motors, the Ampera was voted the 2012 European Car of the Year.
Unlike conventional hybrids, which were effectively combustion-engined cars with electric back up, the Vauxhall Ampera is essentially powered by electric motors but also includes a four-cylinder combustion engine and additional generator so the car doesn’t stop running even when the batteries are flat. It also boosts an impressive cruising range of over 300 miles.
With such a broad range of both vintage and modern Vauxhall models around, finding the right replacement parts and accessories can be a real headache. Performance Car Parts is proudly able to offer any Vauxhall part you need and at a great price too.
