    Ali's Corsa finally lowered all round (pics)

    Finally lowered Ali's car 40mm at the back, after the local wheel & Ice shop said it would be fine 50mm on 17"s... that was 3-4 months ago!!! guess what they were wrong cars been running on standard rear springs since i put the wheels on!! arches were rolled and everything (by me) yet lowered 50mm with two in the back it still rubbed off the top of the arch.. 40 mm springs later two folk in the back to test it.. jobs a good un

    All done before the last falkirk wheel (and i mean JUST BEFORE and in pissing rain!!) didnt realise how quickly the front tyres would wear with standard rears and 50mm fronts on tho!

    anyways onto the pics, some of them aint the best as it was night time and poor light from the Asda Car park at Livicruise, but you can still see how it sits








    Looking alot better imho just needs to lose those two extra doors

    Looks well for a 5-door B. Bet the lowering springs are an improvement over the whacky-wheels standard suspension.

    Springs and shocks make all the difference to these wee cars, mine was lowered 60mm, it certainly does make a difference and the Setup Ali has makes alot of difference to his car handling wise, pity it doesnt improve performance cos he was still left for dead by Whitey and Macd on the motorway

    Aye lol but it's down on its arse again and lookin all the better for it

    We were meant to get Karens 40mm's off her tigra but icy couldnt get them off, then another lassie was meant to swap ali for them but she was taking her time so in the end up he bought a set of 40mm rears and is just gonna sell the 50mms

    went through a set of tyres sitting like it was aswell
