    yep they will as long as you uprate the shocks aswell (advisable with a drop of over 40mm), be a little aware to tyre choice but you shouldnt have any problems with that set up its near enough perfect You may get some rubbing when the car is full but thats about it.

    damn -60mm is a little overkill methinks personally.
    I was looking at some -60mm springs and i realised id probably bottom out trying to get onto the drive lol.
    Both the front bumper and the sills.

    Maybe something to take into consideration if you are going over speed bumps frequently?
    Or getting you onto your drive...would agree with Ffoeg for uprating the shock absorbers....a m8 of mine cut the springs (Not Advisable) off of his progressive springs and ended up destroying the dampers

    My hatch was lowered -60mm with uprated shocks and I didnt really have a problem, yes you do need to be carefull but with speed bumps and drives etc, but thats what you have to do to get a car low

    if you running 19's it raises the car up so a 60mm drop is like a 40mm drop on 18's!

    you will get wear on the inside of the tyres, it catch's the front arch's and rear arch's.
    thats why i'm back on 40mm lowering springs stop the catch and have a better ride.

    I would advise you spend money getting a complete suspension set up as opose to just springs.

    because you have et40mm wheels, its the outside you need to grind back and roll!!
