6 reviews for Tesla Model 3 Dual Rate Linear Lowering Spring Set

  1. Andrew Petrella (verified owner)

    Loved the dual rate feature. A more comfortable ride for daily driving and a stiffer more controlled feel for spirited driving!

  2. zackfeldstein9 (verified owner)

    Drove on these for 60,000 miles and they were perfect. Never heard any noise from these and it’s such a great and affordable way to increase the performance of your car easily and without a huge financial commitment. Super impressed with what these could do. Highly recommend.

  3. Sof (verified owner)

    I had these on for a few thousand miles before getting coil overs. The car looked and and felt great with and without a full load of passengers. I got the moderate stiffness, and the car was planted. Highly recommend!

  4. Shaul (verified owner)

    After ordering the springs I waited a bit because they were on back order. However they were worth the wait. I was afraid that the improved stance would compromise the ride, but it totally didn’t. The ride is improved and the look is perfect! Thank you Blake for the friendly service!

  5. Stephen Lortz (verified owner)

    For my 2018 Model 3P I got the mild springs. Amazing! The ride feel is even better than I was hoping for. The car is my daily driver and the harshness of the stock springs with the 20″ rims made me consider switching to 19″.
    Instead I figured I try UP’s dual rate springs first since it seemed to advertise what I was looking for.
    Now, no need to go to the 19″s. The street ride is less harsh and at the same time the car control feels more solid.
    It did take a while for the parts to arrive but more than worth the wait.
    Thank you Adam and the installers at UP!

  6. deeidson (verified owner)

    Exactly what I wanted. Much better appearance. Beautiful stance. Both stiffer in the corners and smoother on the regular road imperfections. Feels more tuned and prepared. Will recommend to all my Tesla owning friends.

DESCRIPTION

An unparalleled dedication to research and advanced engineering has created the ultimate in Model 3 spring technology. Every version of every spring we produce is specifically engineered for two distinct linear spring rates. This allows enhanced comfort (spring rate #1) paired with increased handling (spring rate #2).

One size does not fit all, we’ve engineered specific spring rates to more perfectly enhance the handling of each Model 3 variant. Enjoy the immediate benefits of improved comfort and handling, combined with a sporty ride height that reduces drag and increases range.

CONCEPT:

This ambitious engineering project began with a review of factory spring rates and led to a goal of the following:

  1. Target an increase in comfort in daily driving situations. Solution by studying factory spring rates and producing a softer but proportionate spring rate front and rear.
  2. Target an increase in performance when cornering. Solution by utilizing the highest technology partner and producing a secondary more sporty performance spring rate that engages when cornering g forces are loaded.
  3. Target an increase in range. Achieved by lowering the car as height is proven to correlate to aerodynamic efficiency.
  4. Every day improved performance at a significant value. Solution by producing in bulk volume in a direct manufacturer partnership produced to proprietary Unplugged Performance developed specifications.

WHY CHOOSE UNPLUGGED PERFORMANCE DUAL RATE LINEAR LOWERING SPRINGS?

Choosing UP dual rate linear springs means that you are able to enjoy a 15-30% softer spring rate around town than what is possible with low cost standard linear springs can provide with only one spring rate. After experiencing first hand, you’ll find that UP’s decision to take on the additional engineering work and production costs are well justified with UP dual rate linear springs because the technology allows for a softer ride than ever previously possible, all without giving up performance handling precision when it matters most. The primary spring rate (cruising around town over bumps and pot holes) is intentionally engineered to be as soft as possible for comfort. When the primary spring rate compresses under load (spirited driving conditions) the second spring rate transitions in. The second spring rate is typically 30% more firm and acts to reduce body roll, increase grip and enhance precision. By comparison, when using lower cost single rate linear springs there is only one defined spring rate and therefore it cannot be made as soft because there is no second transition rate to firm up when needed. Alternatively, by comparison with lower cost progressive springs they allow a continuous range of spring rates but do so without the predictability, confidence and planted feeling of linear single spring rates. Performance drivers for decades have always chosen linear springs, this product is uniquely a dual linear rate engineered spring to allow high performance and high comfort.

SPECIFICATIONS:

  • Produced in an engineering partnership with Formula 1 and 50+ consecutive Indy car winning spring supplier HYPERCO
  • Proven Dual Rate spring technology allows for best of both worlds. The car rides at noticeably softer spring rates around town. When sporty handling is desired, natural cornering g forces activate the spring’s 30% sportier secondary spring rate which reduces body roll and gives noticeable difference in both feel and handling at the limit
  • Physics proven benefits of range efficiency by lowering center of gravity and reducing underbody air turbulence
  • Mild provides nearest factory ground clearance and softest ride. Moderate provides a ground clearance equivalence to modern sports cars with slightly more comfort around town and sportier handling in corners. Low provides a ground clearance equivalence to modern hypercars with most firm of our spring options. Mild is approximately 0.7″ drop, Moderate is approximately a 1.5″ drop, Low is approximately a 2.1″ drop. * Drop measurements are relative to measurements of the factory Tesla Model 3 however from the factory we have seen different heights varying by 0.6” across different production dates, battery pack configurations, and tire sizes. Drop measurements are a general reference point to compare our springs across our lineup but cannot be exact in measurement due to various starting heights of factory car configurations.
  • Designed, Engineered and Produced in America

Dual Rate Linear Lowering Spring Set for Tesla Model 3

During our comprehensive aerodynamic study of Model 3, we tested the efficacy of our Dual Rate Linear Lowering Springs using CFD, and the results were very interesting!

After installation of the Moderate Version of our Dual Rate Linear Lowering Springs (1.5″ lower ride height), a decrease of 8.1% in total vehicle drag resulted, with a reduction of the total vehicle drag coefficient by 0.019 (factory ride height = 28.5″ baseline, measured at the center of the front fender).

FAQ
Is this a linear or a progressive spring?
Neither. It is a third category. The dual rate nature of this product is a direct descendant to motorsports “stacked’ spring setups. A stacked spring is two linear springs of differing spring rates and lengths that are stacked together with a predetermined location for a transition point between spring rates. This strategy employed on high end motorsports suspensions provides predictable results yet allows advanced tuning of handling characteristics by using two independent linear spring rates. The dual rate spring we offer is of equivalent concept. It employs two specifically engineered linear spring rates with a specifically located transition point between the two rates. Therefore, it is more linear spring than progressive spring in nature, yet is a third category.
Will Tesla warranty non-Tesla parts such as these springs?
We warranty our spring kit with our lifetime product warranty. Tesla’s warranty covers their products but Tesla does not keep inventory or purchase non Tesla products for warranty repair, they only warranty what they manufacture.
Will Tesla void my warranty if I install aftermarket parts?
A vehicle’s comprehensive warranty as a whole may not be voided due to use of aftermarket parts per the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act (https://www.sema.org/sema-enews/2011/01/ftc-validates-right-to-install-aftermarket-parts). However, a manufacturer may require a customer to pay for parts and labor for a repair if there is direct causation between a customer’s alteration and the product or service repair being requested. It is in both manufacturer and customer’s interest to follow logic and reason so that the system of good faith is not abused. If this topic interests you please read the law as well as your warranty documentation. Ultimately we are Tesla owners and enthusiasts, we are not lawyers and cannot provide legal advice.
Will the longevity of my shocks be impacted by lowering the car?
Shock life on a vehicle depends on many variables such as driving prolonged periods of time on unpaved surfaces in rural routes, high performance driving on winding roads, motorsports use, and/or other high impact situations. It has been reported at times that extreme lowering of a vehicle can in instances shorten the life cycle of shocks for example. If you research online you may see examples of extreme cases in which a car was lowered well outside of the safe operating range of the shock valving, and doing so can lead to excessive wear. In those extreme cases, when driving a vehicle that is too low and operating outside of the shock’s range, it can be typically felt with noticeable degradation of ride quality resulting in rough and bouncy driving. Our product does not fall into such an extreme and this particular topic has shades of gray in between the extremes. There is ultimately no definitive formula in determining how much or how little wear a shock will incur over time because shock wear encompasses many use factors, height being one of them. Out of an abundance of caution, we encourage that precaution is taken with regards to the possibility of more frequent purchasing or rebuilding of shocks or related components in correlation with driving style and lowering. This topic is largely similar to the understanding that when driving aggressively tires will wear faster and tire costs may increase as a result of more aggressive driving. Ultimately if this is of concern then lowering your car may not be the right choice for you.
What happens to alignment when a car is lowered?
Every vehicle’s alignment correlates to ride height and adjusts freely as height changes. For example, if you ask any Model S or Model X owner with air suspension, they will tell you that they love how the car looks and performs when driving on the lower range of settings. They will also often advise that they experience some additional tire wear from negative camber. What they are experiencing is that the car is aligned at a fixed height, and when air suspension lowers the car lowers and the alignment changes relative to height. A lower height typically results in more negative camber which can both increase handling and decrease tire lifespan. Getting a car re-aligned allows each owner options for setting an adjustable alignment characteristics. This enables you to to inform your alignment shop as to whether you would like alignment to be more aggressive (trading tire wear for handling) or more economical (trading off maximum grip for better tire wear). Please note that while alignment shops can adjust these settings to your tastes, there is a limitation on the ranges of adjustment.
What happens when my car has passengers in the rear, or a full trunk? Is rear height negatively impacted?
The benefit of dual rate linear springs is that there are two discrete spring rates. As a result, we were able to design a firmer secondary rate that is stiff enough to prevent excessive sagging when extra weight is applied.
Will lowering my car reduce my ground clearance and what happens if I scrape my car?
Yes, your ground clearance will be adjusted by equivalent lowering value of the lowering spring you select. We address this question in greater depth above within the subject “which version should I get?”. Cars of factory height and of all shapes and sizes unfortunately sometimes encounter situations in which they scrape and/or incur damage. In such cases the cost of that damage is the responsibility of the driver and not of the vehicle or aftermarket part manufacturer. When choosing to lower your vehicle, we encourage you to be aware that you are reducing ground clearance and therefore increasing your chances of impact. Drivers of previously low cars tend to understand this inherently, however if this topic is new to you please take consideration of all facts before making your decision.
I'm thinking of upgrading my wheels / tires in addition to springs, is there anything I should know?
For any car, tire sizing is a very important topic; specifically, maintaining the correct ratio of width and diameter when replacing / upgrading tires. Model 3 is available from Tesla with several wheel options, in three different diameters. Despite the different sizes, the overall tire size ratio is almost identical, and as it can affect the height of the car, this ratio plays a role in how your Model 3 will look post-spring installation. We’ve seen several owners install tires which have significantly different overall diameters than suggested, which causes the vehicle to either sit higher or lower than the height for which our springs are intended. When choosing tires, we strongly recommend keeping within the very precise margin for overall diameter as spec’d from Tesla.

After using the fascia for over two years, this feels like a must-have Tesla upgrade. The stock Model 3 just doesn’t look the same anymore. I would recommend epoxy over double-sided tape to secure the ultrasonic sensors for a longer-lasting, flush fitment.
Exactly what I wanted. Much better appearance. Beautiful stance. Both stiffer in the corners and smoother on the regular road imperfections. Feels more tuned and prepared. Will recommend to all my Tesla owning friends.
After using the fascia for over two years, this feels like a must-have Tesla upgrade. The stock Model 3 just doesn’t look the same anymore. I rate 4/5 stars since epoxy would be better than double-sided tape to secure the ultrasonic sensors.
Unplugged Performance UP Emblem You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. The UP Emblem, just another seemingly innocuous item that KIRK added to make the car pop when driving behind it. The sun shines on the titanium and it screams at you and then goes back into its subtle way. To say that I love...
The ascension front fascia makes my model 3 look so much sportier and aggressive. I’ve had it on my car for over a year now and I love it. The car looks way better than stock. This is how the car should look coming out of the factory.
UP Pikes Peak Race Team Soft Shell Jacket by North Face You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. The UP Jacket I first noticed on the Pikes Peak video on the set in the shop and I asked KIRK, “Do you have some of those”? He pulled two Medium beauties from the vault and added a couple of...
These carbon fiber seats are amazing in our plaid drag car. Looks like it came from Tesla just like that. 🔥🔥🔥 Thanks
I was not going to get these, as I do not track my car. I love the any chance to control as much about my car as possible. Just one more way to stand out from the crowd. And, I can get my tires to last a reasonable amount of miles.
We got these (BBK) installed on our S Plaid was the best think we could have upgraded first. They feel so great when stopping on the big end on the tracks, So much light weight as well from the factory stock brakes. Thanks
An absolute MUST when thinking about your first upgrade. The Model Y, even in it's Performance Model, has more body roll than you'd like. It was one of my biggest complaints when driving the first few months. After installation, body roll was greatly reduced. Cornering on-ramps and turns with a...
Product is top notch when I installed them it was like switching from a 1 piston sliding caliper to a bbk. Also cold performance and noise are really good
Christos Kentistos
Same as the fascia, this feels like a must-have Tesla upgrade. The stock Model 3 just doesn’t look the same anymore. I love the dry carbon material and would highly recommend. I wish the diffuser fins came standard, even with a higher cost. With some DIY, you can make the air ducts in the bumper...
You can see my photos on the site under Steve Guevara to see the detailed work that went into the front fascia unit. I said before that my skeptical wife told me to pick out the car that I wanted, so I liked the TM3 the best as my kids are away at college and now it is my turn to be spoiled. I also...
Love these 6-points Harness in our S Plaid drag race car. Looks so amazing in the car with the UP carbon fiber seats..👌🏾
You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. WHEELS, what to say about this indescribable addition. There are so many incredible things added to my SMG3, but this wheel set altered the car drastically. The RIDE is much improved with the grip around tight corners like Topanga Canyon with the other four...
Psychologists say that the more you pay for something, the more you like it. Maybe that’s what’s happening here, but the front fenders are now my most cherished upgrade. I love that I can unlock up to a 315mm square setup with a track camber and 305-295mm with a daily camber. I’ll never be...
These Rear brakes was a big help with our S Plaid drag racing car.Feels great and paired with the Front (BBK) & Upgraded to Racing brake fluid with the stainless steel lines. Thanks
I’ve worked on cars and pushed them close to their mechanical limits all my life. This Model S Plaid definitely needs a brake upgrade if you tend to push your car harder than the average driver lol. The BBK install was pretty straight forward. You can use the instructions provided or with no...
