What Is Corner Balancing and Why Your Car Needs It

What is corner balancing you say? After you have modified your car’s suspension you need to do a few things. We talked about it a little in the video 5 Tips For Coilover Adjustment and Installation. On the GTI I installed adjustable suspension called coilovers. This means we can adjust ride hight to dial in exactly what we what. But we also need to be sure the load of the car is even. Corner balancing a car allows us to get it right. Corner balancing is the shifting of weight carried by each wheel. Many things can impact a car’s “balance”. Simply having a few passengers in the car will change the car’s behavior under braking, acceleration and steering. Today I will show you exactly what corner balancing is, why it’s important and how its done.
