    how to lower?

    hey all,

    me and dr_shabzzz have discussed this for a bit over msn ad cnt think of anything...

    bit of a prob, i was planning to lower my car at xmas with some new springs.

    but the problem is i am finding my self ver close to the floor as it is with my irmy kit on, lowering it im worried im going to drag on the floor!!!

    what can i do about this? i wanna lower to get rid of the huge gap gap in my wheels arch, and possibly improve performance, but how do i get round my scrapping problem?

    rich..
