    Also, notice the difference in the ride height from the new -30mm springs and my old spax 40mm on OE dampers...





    just goes to show how screwed those springs were...

    anyone wanna buy a set of spax springs?

    yeah, it actually grips the road well, without feeling the irritating bumps in the road...

    the ride is smoother now...

    strange... but the OE springs must not have liked the lowered springs but at all.

    Have I read that wrong or does it say the OE springs didnt like the lowered springs? lol did they have a chat in the garage?

    Anyhow, seems to be a decent drop, not too low etc but I cant help but notice how large the arches appear to either side of the wheels.

    lol... oops...

    the OE shocks didnt like the springs... sorry, mind on other things whilst posting...

    the kit is the supersport kit as seen on ebay for about £169...

    the company are good, but terrible if something is wrong with the set (as mine was) took a month to replace a front damper, because they sent 2 right hand side ones out.

    wheels are 17's with 40 profile tyres (205/40/17)
