    Looks like 30/20 or 30/30

    Are they coilovers or just lowering springs?
    Its a jam thing

    Something looks wrong there, mine is lowered 30mm all round on eibachs & looks alot lower at the rear than yours. I dont agree with lowering a different heights personaly. alot of people think the coupe front sits higher, but if you look, its just the arch is cut higher than the rear arches!

    According to Koni's website they produce a 30/35 kit and then coilovers. Are the springs the same colour front and rear. The rear does look unusually high.

    mines on fk coilvers,around 50mm on rear, yours looks a bit high. tbh u wont get lower unless u go down the coilover route as the coupe as like most vox's has a high ass

    I'm affraid mate your gonna have to take a closer inspection and clean some of the dirt off them to see the part no's stamped or printed onto the spring.
