    My coupe - now lowered

    hi there,

    never really had chance to post often before but now i have had the coupe lowered i am more into the car than before so i may as well post.

    lowered it yesterday on eibach springs ( thanks to grigglet for them) in my opinion it has transformed the handling of the car, feels so much tighter around corners. I used to have a saxo i lowered on cheap springs because i thought paying more wouldnt make much difference but buying these eibachs has proved me wrong.

    will be posting some pics at the weekend if i get her clean so you can se the other things i have done, which are

    lexus rear lights,
    FK front grille
    rear boot spoiler
    BK166 in 17" flavour
    lowered 40/35mm

    Eibach springs are good quality. The standard dampers are very soft, and should be changed also.

    How come it says 40/35mm in your profile. What Eibachs did you fit.

    re: My coupe - now lowered

    I wanna lower ma coupe, didnt know wot springs to go for, a 30-40mm drop was wot i was gonna go for.

    Does it sit nice and level with them?

    Is it lowered 35mm front and 40mm rear (or vice versa) or is it the same back and front?

    same drop all round, i meant to say aprox 35-40mm drop. it looks lower at the back than front but grigglet assures me the front will settle after a week or so.
