    Bit of a problem with lowering, mk4

    Hello there! I thought I`d ask here, since not many know nothing about lowering these mk4`s here in Finland.

    I bought Rokkor Racing coilovers, adjusted them to as low as possible, but it still rides a bit too high! I know I can take off the smaller helper springs or whetever they are in english, but how can I drop the rear end more?

    But taking off the adjust ring still wont drop it enough. There`s now 8 centimeters ground clearance from my cars belly, still want it to drop 3 centimeters or so.

    Front 30-65mm, Rear 35-55mm. Rokkor Racing`s were the cheapest I found.

    Okay then.. I`ll try it tomorrow... We`ll see what sort of forward lean I get after taking off the bias springs (correct name?) and the adjust rings off from the rear.
