Looking at my options, I'm not entirely sure what lowering springs will fit the DCT as none of the manufacturers or distributors have that information listed. I can't imagine there would be any problem running any of the standard options, i.e. Whiteline, Ark Performance, etc., but I just wanna make sure. Anyone have any experience with lowering their DCT N?

Not sure if it was DCT or not but I’ve only heard of 2 related lowering springs suspension failures-and that could’ve been the installation (damaged sensor etc). I think you’re fine

I emailed Whiteline to ensure fitment on the DCT model, currently waiting on reply. Regardless of any damages that may or may not happen, I don't even know if lowering springs will fit and what differences may be present on the DCT as opposed to a manual car. Hoping for good news when I get emailed back so I can make an order.

I love H&R just throwing it out there.

I'm 99% sure that the springs will physically fit. You have to remember though that the DCT weights a bit more in the front so theoretically any spring would need a higher spring rate to achieve the same results as on the MT cars.

The reply I received from Whiteline stated that their technicians had no notes for fitment on an N with the DTC but the notes DID say that they would fit on cars with multilink rear suspension, which would be all of our cars, correct? As for the weight difference, I've taken that into account so I think it may be in my best interest to just wait to go lower after there's a dedicated set of lowering springs for cars with the DCT.

Not sure if this will help anyone but I contacted ARK about their lowering springs for the added DCT weight and here is what they said:
”Yes, our spring rates for the Veloster N ARK GT-S is compatible and efficient for with or without DCT. What type of driving will you be using your Veloster N?”

Yep! I'm lowered on ARK GT-S springs now since the posting of this discussion. Thank you though I appreciate it! So far so good I've been throughly enjoying them.

Sorry for the late reply I haven’t been on the forums much as of late, but no Whiteline never got back to me. I’ve been on the ARK GTS springs since late September last year and they been great, just be careful if you get them for your DCT as fitment changes drastically if you’re on bigger wheels and tires. On stock wheels and tires it’s fine.
