    suspension issues

    right,i have a 2002 coupe turbo,as you all know there roughly 20mm lower as standard right?,i have fitted some 18"s and now i have a big gap so i want to lower it,i want to lower it 40mm,no problem as there are companys that do springs etc that say lowers by 40mm,but i keep hearing that they wont lower 40mm,only 20mm,cus of the 20mm its already lower by?? wat i want is some people who have a coupe turbo with 18"s to post some pics of there cars lowered and tell me wat springs etc thay have used so i can get some ideas before i waste money and get dissapointed when i dont get the drop i want

    thanks guys

    Wrong - only the early turbo ones were (along with the SE1 and some SE2's), and only on the back.

    In most cases, dropping coupé by 40mm will do just that.

    no need to bump threads, especially after less then 30mins - it's Sunday afternoon and most people will be doing other stuff.

    do a search while you're waiting!!

    do a search for threads by andy coupe. he's got a 2.2 coupe lowered on eibach 30's and it looks great. that will give you an idea of how much more to go. there's one thread with a huge picture in it
    Coupe now being broken for parts
    You know the one

    Enquire within
