    lowering my gsi

    hi all,advise needed im wanting to lower my car but unsure what kit to buy,im just wanting spring but have read past threads that the gsi is already lowered by 20mm,was thinking of getting 40mm springs but would this only drop it another 20mm rather than 40mm,should i go for a 50mm kit ?????

    Plenty of pics kicking about.

    Many many folk opt for the 30/30 Eibach's though some like the 50/30? think thats correct.

    Personally I'd only get 50/30 if your uprating ur dampers too, as its been made aware that anything over 40mm drop on standard dampers will make the handling really bad.

    I'd go for the Eibach 30/30.

    Btw there are other kits around like G-Max and stuff but, some other kits squeak or dont lower as far as they say on the box.

    Btw, 888's sit on Eibach 30/35mm so if u like how they sit, get the Eibach 30/30 kit.
