    How low can I go.

    Firstly, BIG shout out to Natalie (Dangermouse) for the way she handled the sale of her Smiths Dragon Alloys. I`m not just down the road but she agreed to wait until next week for me to go up and collect them. Cheers Nat.

    Anyway, when I get them fitted I might get the car lowered at the same time but don`t want to go too mad. What would be a good sensible drop, 30-35mm I think. Over to you.

    If your after a sensible drop and don't want to change your shocks then
    -30mm is a sensible drop .

    The alloys are 17`s and I`ll be fitting 205/40/17 tyres.

    Cheers, 30mm sounds about right for now.

    Thanks for the advice everyone but I`m going to leave the springs until next month as I have to replace the brake pads. Will also be replacing the standard disks with new drilled & grooved ones.

    Anyway, I need to keep some spare cash for beer!

    Man-Chun (M-Accessories), what could you do the KW Sports lowering springs for mate?, I can`t get them this month but deffo next month.
