    Lowering my estate.

    Hey all.

    I am starting to want a harder ride in my estate.
    I was wondering, whats the recomendtions on shocks/springs?

    Is it worth lowering an estate?
    Can it be done at home?

    I am only thinking of a 40mm drop, something that realisitic, yet noticable.

    Its a 2 litre, diesel, on a T plate (99) with 195/60x15 Tyres.

    Cheers

    Waiting to get the MOT outta the way before I do this,also looking into some black 17" alloys before I go for the drop!

    Someone mentioned using coupe lowering springs,not 100% sure if it works for us estate owners or not though.

    I want a firm ride. Yet nice and cool low...
    Think Corsa B springs will make me too bouncy.

    Any certain makes out there, that people can recomend?
    I;d might as well get the full hog done... srpings and shocks...
