Lowrider

Lowrider (Cars)

A Lowrider is a car or truck which has had its suspension system modified (with hydraulic suspension) so that it rides as low as possible. Lowriders often have user controlled height adjustable suspension. Lowriders are very often classic cars from the 1950 (68 years ago) which rode low to begin with, although large numbers of 1940 (78 years ago) and 1960 (58 years ago) cars are also modified, and to a lesser degree newer vehicles. The word is also used to refer to those who drive or own such cars. A Lowrider will traditionally have many factory offered accessories / options and often many after-market accessories added. As a result of the modifications, many lowriders are not street-legal vehicles.

Hydraulics

Many lowriders feature custom hydraulic suspensions that allow the driver to alter the ride height at will. These systems range from simple to complex and are usually measured by the number of hydraulic pumps (generally 2 to 4) used to control the various hydraulic combinations that ultimately produce a specific motion from the vehicle. These pumps are powered by multiple batteries installed in a rack in the trunk of the vehicle. The speed at which the car lifts depends partly on the voltage generated by these batteries, which can range from 24 all the way up to 124 volts. The most common motions are dipping/raising the four corners of the vehicle (referred to as corners), dipping/raising the front or rear of the vehicle (front, back), dipping/raising the sides of the vehicles (side to side), and lowering/raising the vehicle as a whole (pancake). A skilled switch operator can manipulate his controls (hitting switches) to raise one wheel completely off the ground (3-wheel motion), or to hop one end of the car completely off the ground.
