    lol... a good question lord nikon...

    the answer being that the koni kit you see there is for the hatch, and whilst the dampers are the same, apparently the springs are not.

    so i sold the springs to ffoeg, and bought a set of FK coupe springs....


    plus the FK should be a little lower

    Rusty, am I right in thinking you've got the irmscher springs at the moment? If so how much do they lower the car, and do you want to sell them?

    yes i do have them, they lower by about 25mm (have a look at my car in the gallery - that's how low they take it) and yes i will be selling them. however someone has already asked first refusal on them so i have to offer it to them first.... if they decline i'll give you next refusal mate... sorry!

    did it myself this evening mate... all done now!



    Divma - the FK springs are supposed to be 35-40.... but it's already looking at least that and they ahven't been given a chance to bed yet!

    shaan - hope so!

    ok mate, fair play. By the way I found some switches on the net, they're bloody tiny, think I might need to get some bigger ones!
