    Question Lowering springs - Help Advice Required

    Hello people

    I am after some advice, I have just removed my eibach -30mm springs and replaced with FK -60/40

    the ride quality of the FK springs is too harsh and you dont half feel the bumps lumps an that ever else you drive over.

    The Eibach kit was not low enough for my liking so I bought the FK kit thinking 60/40 meant -60 rear an -40 front, it is the other way around.... Doh

    anyhow, Has anyone any experience with Apex springs, I am considering the -40mm kit

    I want to go -40 or -50 can anyone reccomend me some good ride quality springs (not coilovers though)

    comment welcome.

    Have a look at SPAX springs, I fitted them on mine ride quality is good when taking it easy, put your foot down they stiffen up nice, I only went 35mm drop though.

    50mm aint too low, it is just the quality of the ride once fitted

    my experience has led me to finding Jamex Gmax FK Pi all give nice drops but ride quality is toooo harsh

    Eibach are very good but only do -30/-30 and -50/-30

    I am looking for -40/-40 or -50/-50

    I desperately need feedback on Apex Koni and any other brands not mentioned

    what size wheels you got mate? iv got 18s and think 40/40 is about right. or if they do it 50/40, 50 being at the back would look good
