    Racelands set to the lowest but not enough!

    hi.
    im running raceland coilovers which is set to its lowest which is about 70mm all round. just wondering if it could be lowered even more by taking the helper spring on the coilovers off?
    also im going to be taking the adjuster off the back to drop that another 10mm.
    i dont want to buy new coilovers so if anyone has any ideas that would be great! always ill leave it.
    this is how my car is sitting now but i would like it a couple of mm lower.

    any advice!!???

    take the helpers out the front and adjusters out the back. failing that get custom rear springs as with the helpers out the front it will go to around 120mm

    could i not just take the helpers out the front and take the adjuster off the back? will i need to get custom springs as that sounds expensive?
    thanks for your help

    ye you can still lower an higher it with the helpers out. give coil springs a call for custom springs, they can make you some so you can still keep the adjusters, im going to be ordering so 90mm ones soon and use my adjusters with them

    I no im not answering the question, the answers already there but why do you want to go lower out of curiosity? Personally i think that sits absolutely perfect.
