    Yeah that basically looks the sane as mines with the ta technix kit that i got. I dont understand how they can say it drops the car down 100mm when it doesnt. The springs need re designed to be shorter.

    Owell they are bought now, just have to see what happens. Cheers for that mate

    well they possibly could go 100mm normally means you have to remove the helper spring like in this photo
