Re: Finally lowered the Malibu
I lowered my Malibu with the 2.0L Malibu Suspension Lowering Kit from GM. I have attached an image showing my grey car (lowered) and the red dealer car (stock height).
I wanted a more aggressive stance but I really wanted the car to handle better. When cornering at speed in slippery conditions, the back end felt (to me) very light and like it wanted to come around. Not anymore. The back end now feels like it sits down in the corners. Handles WAY WAY better.
I will let you decide if it looks lower but here are the ride heights of each year (measured from underside of fender to ground)
2016 Malibu (stock) - Front (710mm / 28") Rear (725mm / 28.5")
2017-2018 Malibu (stock) - Front (710mm / 28") Rear (735mm / 29")
2017-2018 Malibu (lowered) - Front (695mm / 27.3") Rear (720mm / 28.3")
