From the factory, Tesla Model S and Model X cars come with two major design flaws that cause a front end shudder or vibration and shortened rear tire life.
The first design flaw is noticed under hard acceleration and presents itself as a shudder, vibration or sometimes extreme shaking coming from the front of the vehicle. This shudder occurs because of internal damage to the front half-shafts. The damage happens because the angle of the front half-shafts or drive axles between the motor and the wheels is too steep and causes extreme tension and binding within the half-shaft. This binding will damage and deform portions of your half-shafts’ internals and leave you with what’s been commonly referred to as acceleration shudder. The only solution from Tesla’s Service Centers is to put the car’s suspension in “Low”. However this then exacerbates the second design flaw where the rear wheels tilt too far inwards. The Tesla Model S and X are already known to wear out the rear tires on the inside edge due to excessive negative camber, or wheels tilting inwards from the top. Lowering the suspension setting makes the wheels tilt in even further! This causes more the weight of the car to rest on the inner shoulder of the wheel. Driving this way quickly wears down the inside edge of the rear tires which can cause a sudden and unexpected dangerous blowout.
These two problems are by far the most talked about issues in the online Tesla groups. Fortunately, these design flaws are correctable with N2itive’s adjustable suspension components. Our Alignment Kit 1 can automatically set the car to a lower height to reduce premature half-shaft/CV joint wear and accompanying acceleration shudder and allow the rear wheels to be properly aligned to eliminate the common inner tire wear problem. All while staying within Tesla’s alignment specifications. This is important for the proper functioning of the vehicle and for your safety.
Our adjustable suspension components are known to be the strongest and best engineered on the market by far, even more so than Tesla’s own factory parts! All our products come with an unmatched 6-year warranty.
