Ready to upgrade the handling of your FIAT 500?

This listings if for our MADNESS FIAT 500 Sport Springs that feature a mild drop, but much improved handling.


The MADNESS Lowering Springs were developed as a joint effort between us (MADNESS) and our European Partners that produce some of the best performance spring in the world. Rather then compromise and produce one style of springs to suit everyone we decided to design and manufacturer two different types of springs to specially suit the type of handling and look our fellow 500 owners ask for.

Our MADNESS Edition Performance Springs come in two versions.

Our Sport version (this listing) offers the driver a comfortable ride along with a mild drop with significantly improved handling. Our Sport Plus version (please check our other listing for Sport Plus) offers a more aggressive drop while retaining most of the ride quality.

This Sport version offers the following drop:

FIAT 500 ABARTH              - approximate drop of .7"
FIAT 500 Turbo                   - approximate drop of .7"
FIAT 500 Sport                    - approximate drop of 1.2"
FIAT 500 Pop (pre '18)        - approximate drop of 1.2"
FIAT 500 Pop ('18-on)         - approximate drop of .7"
FIAT 500 Lounge (pre '18)   - approximate drop of 1.2"
FIAT 500 Lounge ('18-on)   - approximate drop of .7"

We designed the springs to be progressive rate for the best combination of ride and handling.

If you want to sharpen the handling of your 500 without sacrificing ride quality or going for the low look - this is the kit for you!
 
Vehicles with 30k+ miles may benefit from replacing the factory rubber top mounts at the same time.

What are progressive rate springs?

Progressive rate springs feature individual coils that are spaced differently and have a spring rate that is variable. Under normal driving conditions the first couple of centimeters compress easily, but as you apply more force (as in high speed cornering) the coils come closer. At a certain point, coil at the top 1/4 of progressive springs begin to touch each other and finally become inactive or dead, and that makes the spring stiffer. Apply more forces to a progressive spring then it becomes stiffer because as the number of active coils in a spring decreases, the spring rate increases. So, progressive springs may both be sensitive to very small bumps on the road, while giving the stiffness you need during hard braking and turning.

About Manufacturer

MADNESS Autoworks is your One Stop Shop for customizing, accessorizing and servicing your favorite ride.

Whether you are looking for custom wheels, window tinting, custom stereo installation or other performance modifications we are your shop.

MADNESS Autoworks is located in Signal Hill, CA (an enclave surrounded by the City of Long Beach) and is a facility dedicated to making your favorite ride truly yours by offering a wide line of aftermarket accessories, installation and customizing services.

MADNESS Autoworks was originally known as SMART MADNESS a company that became famous for customizing and accessorizing smart cars.

SMART MADNESS has become the largest provider of smart car parts, accessories and customizing services in North America and now one of the largest globally in just a couple of short years.

We accomplished this goal by providing the very best in products and services at reasonable prices with a personal touch. We treat our customers like family members and do our best to make sure every one of our customers gets the very best treatment possible.

A number of our customers own other cars besides the smart car and continuously ask us if we would also work and or customize their other car due to their positive experience with us. This is how MADNESS Autoworks was born.

Our goal is simple! Provide you, the driver with the widest range of products, servicing and customizing options with friendly service at a very competitive price.

After spending years working on cars and working with many suppliers we thought at times we could do better by designing and manufacturing some products ourselves. We started partnering up with our most trusted manufacturing partners and suppliers, investing in infrastructure, manufacturing equipment and recruiting some of the best talent that could help us design and build superior products and make them available to our fellow drivers.
 

Our goal is to provide a top quality product that has been tested and used in our own cars and has proven to last and provide a good value for the investment. Whether you are looking for the best value in a set of floor mats, a performance exhaust system, an intake, a roll cage or a carbon fiber part the MADNESS Item is designed to deliver on our promise of bringing a good quality item at a reasonable price. We do not design and build our products to be the cheapest, we design then to be the best value for the money and stand behind them the same way we stand behind our work.
