    Lowering

    Ok my coupe is still on standard springs, it looks like it could do with being lowered a little.

    Would I benefit anything from lowering the back 20mm & front 35mm?

    Also as I have never lowered a car before & my knowledge of the suspension set up, will I just need to get different springs or are there other things also I will need?

    Hi, I think i spoke to you through ebay about the springs.

    If you have a look in my garage there is a pic of my car lowered on these springs, although its not a great photo. The back lowered enough for me and it was just the front that bugged me due to the springs being for heavier cars ie turbo and 2.2.

    I found that the car handled much better on these springs and there was alot less body roll.

    If you want just a little bit of height off then go for a 30/30 Eibach spring kit and jobs a good un. However if you want to get seriously close to the ground your only option would be coilovers really.
