    I went crazy low and found it knocked out the inner N/S driveshaft boot every 6 months. personaly i would only drop it 30mm on coilies, its meant for track use so needs to be corner weighed to set it up for its best, i ditched my coilies in favour of bilstein and eibach set up, never looked back for a fast road set up!

    just my tupney worth.

    If you can get Eibach springs as they give a nice ride and lower at the same time
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
