    Arrow Get rear LOWER! {Coilovers}

    The front of the car is on the lowest setting. So is the rear (adjusters removed). However, the car dips lower at the front.
    How can you get the rear lower to balance out the overall stance?

    angle grinder?

    custom springs?

    quite a few options tbh - but if youve got poundland suspension to start with i doubt custom springs will be your option of choice

    Rather not.
    Where exactly can you get 80mm+ drop ready made springs from?

    Get some 40mm lowering springs off a Corsa or a Nova, can't imagine it handling that great as the poundage will be too soft... but it will be chuffing low

    surely if you go to low on the back the back wheels start raking forward rather then sitting in the middle of the arch
