    providing u have the correct width rims and offset u could go as low as 60mm. Do u have any idea what dimensions your rims are?

    7 x 17 or 7.5 x 17 and what the offset is? This may be stamped on the inside of the wheel in the format 7J ET40 for instance. A straightforward 40mm drop should be perfectly ok but best off finding the wheel dimensions so we can be sure.

    Ive just got spax springs. Im using the 60/40 ones. Cant really fault them to be honest, its not as comfy as standard but it was expected.. saying that its not as harsh as I had imagined! Ive had them on a year and my shocks are perfectly fine too
