    Cost of Lowering Springs

    I've got two prices for some lowering springs the first being £91 for a set of Avo springs 20mm drop, the second is £75 for Apex 35mm drop, are these good prices. Also which would be the better out of the two.

    it depends on what u want mate if u want to keep some of the comfort than go 4 the 25mm ,that price is average, but if u want a more sporting ride eg;stiffer and more responsive round corners, and a noticable lower stance, which is also a average price for just springs, any lower than 40mm and it would be best to get uprated shocks, ok mate

    You'll find next to no difference in the 20mm drop.
    SXis are dropped 20mm as standard.

    Go for the 35mm the ride will still be okay.

    Or wait 3 weeks and you can buy a set of Eibach 30mm from me!!!! Only the rears have been on the car, and at that only for 2 weeks ( + the 3 that they will remain on the car ). They were on temporarily to raise the suspension for a few weeks.

    Just a thought!
