    Lowered coupes pic request

    I'm unsure what to lower my SE2 coupe by, it has the standard 17" wheels. So if anyone had pics of coupes with 17" alloys lowered by 30mm, 45mm, 60mm etc it would be really useful. Dont want to use coilovers though i'd rather get a good shock/spring setup. Thanks

    cheers, how much lower is a coupe than standard anyway? As in if i bought 40mm springs would it only really be 25mm lower on a coupe?

    Mine is lowered on 17's. Its on coilovers as low as it can go at the back without taking the adjuster seats out, and about 1/2 way down the thread at the front. I'd say about 40 front and 60 at the back.

    I'd get coilovers and just go as low as your surrounding road conditions will allow Also, with your SE2 alloys, you wont have any scrubbage issues unless its really low at the front.

    Most Coupe's are not lowered as standard. IIRC only the early ones are lowered.

    That is why they often look comical, like they are on stilts. I put 40mm springs on mine and it dropped 40mm.
