    Coupe lowering

    Just looking at my car and realised that the back end sits higher than a crackhead in a council stair well!!! I'm gonna get some eibachs just want 30 30 lowered not too much,as sitting on 18s, was just wondering what should I be expecting to pay a garage to fit these just so I don't get mugged??

    Get eilbach, GMAX shoudl be renamed g-crap.

    Eilback are known as the best springs out there imo,.

    And the only springs that would go on my car would be eilbach/irmscher

    Just done my convertible 30/30 eibachs, wouldnt put anything else on. Looks a lot better cost 115 for the springs from LMF and £60 fitting by a friend of mine whos a garage manager. I think the normaly charge 80 -100 for fitting, reset the camber and he did the tracking as well.
