    Arch gappage on standard 2002 SXi 3dr?

    I'm getting a bit curious about how low my car actually is on standard 20mm OEM lowered springs.

    There is pretty much no arch gap at the rear - I'd say 10-20mm max if not less. Meant to measure/photo earlier but my wife got back and parked beside mine before I got the chance. I'd say the front has a larger gap but still nothing massive in comparison with some of the before/after lowered SXi's on this forum?

    Currently without a picture so this post is a bit useless - but it stems from me looking at lowered springs and wondering how low the back would actually end up even with some 35/35mm Eibachs...perhaps the extra LPG tank stuff at the back affects things for me? Supposedly adds 80kg though that is between the rear tank at 90% full and the engine stuff to inject the LPG...

    A 35mm kit will lower your car by 15mm. All that extra weight is probably pushing the back end down
