Handling package

A handling package is a set of functional enhancements to the suspension of a vehicle, sold and priced as a unit.

This package may contain one or more of the following enhancements, some of which are detrimental to ride comfort and quietness.

  • Harder suspension bushings
  • Enhanced shock absorbers, which will usually have stiffer valving which may be locally or remotely adjustable
  • Stiffer front anti-roll bar
  • Rear anti-roll bar
  • Special wheels and tires, typically with lightweight wheels of increased diameter and low profile tires offering greater resistance to side forces - such are usually less durable than standard tire/wheel combinations, being subject to both tire and wheel damage by rough pavement ("potholes").
