    Another question on springs

    I'm looking to get some eibach 30/30 springs but know that the front will need to go a down a little more but I don't want 50/30 springs as that will be too low for my needs. Here is the link:

    http://www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk/store/p...1&cat=0&page=1

    From the above link, if I was to order the lower axle weight at the front, would I get the desired affect I'm looking for?

    Hiya i'm interested in your thread, because i have just baught Koni fsd shocks, and they are supposed to be fitted with standard springs, but surely a 30mm drop won't harm.

    Done a bit of research and ebach seem the best,
    sorry i can't help further, but i'm sure someone will know

    i've got the pro kit and the front isn't as low as i'd hope but i've got the irmscher splitter so i wouldn't want it to go any lower. if i were you i'd be looking for a 40/40 drop. the apex and spax ones look a good choice. don't know about the axle weights though sorry

    I've got the irmscher splitter as well, which is why I didn't want such a big drop. I just don't want the 50/30 split as I know I'll rip the splitter off.

    Can anyone else shed some light?

    I've got the irmscher splitter as well, on standard shockers on one of my coup's, with 18 inch force 10's.

    and believe me i still hit the speed ramps at 20mph,
    mind you they are severe around here
    hope i have helped

    Iv just lowered my car 40/40 on 18s mate. I think it looks good and it's not too low. Got the springs off eBay for £70. Can't pic pics up because I'm on my phone but look in my recent posts there's a pic in there

    Thanks mate, just had a look at your post and that does seem like a decent drop. Problem is my front splitter, I think I may just have to bite the bullet and get coilovers so I can set the height up exactly how I want it.
