    Lowering 60mm on standard dampers?

    If i lower my sxi (2003) using 60mm lowering sprongs on the front, what will the ride be like? will the springs rattle on the dampers when the car is jacked up etc? Have any of you tried this combo? cheers

    i personally wouldnt advice you to go lower than 50mm on the standard dampers, the car will bottom out a lot as the shocks will not be uprated and the ride will be bouncey.

    Not very safe either.

    matg is right i have 60mm springs on the front and its really bouncy.
    it doe's not knock or anything but i would defo recomend sorting out some uprated shock asap.
