    Lowering 60mm

    I know a 60mm drop upgrading the springs will knacker the dampers but how long would the standard dampers last with 60mm lowering springs?
    Probably been asked before, but does a 45-50mm drop require a damper upgrade?

    Cheers.

    hello

    it all depends on how you drive and i think the important think is ur shocks will be too long and the car may sit on the bump stops and wont compress the springs and the rear ones could fall out...
    i can get u a price if u want?

    Like CARMODI 60mm mm won't be go down 60mm without sports dampers . If you did fit them onto standard shocks i think your shocks would last only a few months and you would wish you hadn't because of the terrible ride hehe. I think anything more than 30mm would require shocks, i lowered one of my previous cars -40mm on standard shocks, and my shocks needed replacing pretty soon .
