Hey guys/gals, finally had the chance to install the DGR Coilovers on the cruze. Lowered the stock rear 2'' and the front 3''. Going lower in the front in the future!

As of right now, im currently breaking in the new suspension. So I cant really say anything yet. The car is much much more stiffer, awesome feeling around turns. Tight suspension and the firmness of the coils are crazy!

The quality of the pieces is 100% satisfaction!!! Great, simple and easy to work with. NO MODIFICATIONS were nessassary whatsoever.

After the 300 mile break in period is finished I will be testing the suspension FULL OUT! this way I could give a "TRUE" review on the product, As of right now I am extremely happy with these upgrade!


Here are some of the pics from today!

Thanks guys!

Looks great. Looking to sell the Pedders? Did you ever get the revised front springs from Pedders? Any pics with the Pedders and the revised fronts?

Hey bro, pedders sent me the revised set of front springs, but I never installed them. The owner of pedders contacted me directly to tell me the new springs will be the same as the rear, so we won't have that illusion that the front is higher. I finally saw the full potencial of my cruze with the DGR's ! Car looks sick slammed, turning a lot of heads !

Full review will be coming up, I wanna test out many different scenarios, fast cornering, slow, highway cruzing, city cruzing , different roads and see how the car really reacts to it! Plus, I gotta dampen my front and rear springs to get the exact ride I am looking for ! I can see the strut bars and UR chassis braces from InsaneSpeedMotorsports.com working amazing with the new suspension ! Nice and tight with no sway around corners whatsoever ! And this is just from cruzing , iimagine when I start to really step on it through cornering !

I must say that looks sick! Even on stockies. Might end up getting more lows than I wanted.

I though we made a deal for your old pedders lol. Its ok though, I want to wait a little longer before I start doing mods that void warranty and cant be swapped before taking her into the shop for maintenance.

did you have to replace your struts and shocks to lower it that far or could you retain the stock stuff?

They are full coilovers, the only stock part is the front top mounts.

LOOKS GREAT AJ! Now we need a video of you stalking the streets.
Thanks for being a great customer.

Yeah bro Nice drop, and I could even go another inch and a half! Which I will be doing once the summer time comes :)

gunna have my buddy re adjust my coilovers, gotta loosen up the rear end, but the suspension is a lot quicker! The Z link looks like its getting used to them quickly!

I have always loved your Cruze man, i do not know why yours specifically, guess it's because i have seen it change lol. Looks great! I don't know about slamming it more, but in my personal taste i'd keep it like that, specially with all the pot holes here in Miami. Love how aggresive our cars look and now with the drop it looks like it can kick some ass!

Next up your plastidippin your wheels right? ;) I wanna see how they look so i can just buy some 18in's and plastidip em and be happy.
