    sportlines arent low enough

    bought some sportlines off here and the front is perfect but the rear is higher than standard :s so i presume after doing a bit digging that they came off a twintop so they are stiffer and require more weight. is there anything i can do? get some customs made or something??

    because i cant be arsed tyo take off the whole setup to try and sell and then get some more id rather just replace the rear coils

    sportlines are only a 30mm on the rear.
    do the right thing and don't take a grinder to them, try and get hold of some rear coilovers that way you can get the height right without compromising safety.

    Is your car a mk5? I would sell them on complete for the correct car and get the right ones for you. Mine is lowered on sportlines 50/30mm and sits perfect all round. Jxx
