    im planning on lowering my car, advice please.



    as you can see my car is "slightly" high, im wanting to lower it 40mm front and back but ive got lots of questions that NEED to be answered lol

    1. if i only buy some 40mm springs how will they cope with the standard shockers and speed bumps, i dont want to be at the garage 2 months after theyve been fitted.

    2.will they be any rubbing from the tyres on the inner wheel arch.

    3. would i be better off buying some raceland coilovers off ebay??

    is there anything else i need to keep in mind when having the car lowered?

    thanks in advance

    1. the advice I was given was 40mm was the max you should go on standard shocks so you should be fine. I've lowered mine 40mm on standard shocks

    2. I don't think 40mm is very much in the grand scheme of things so I don't think you'd have to worry about this unless you had 19" wheels or something which it doesn't look like you do.

    3. Dunno, someone more in the know will answer this for you. I guess it depends on your budget.

    Mark the camber before you remove the front struts and I think it's possibly a good idea to get the tracking checked afterwards?
