    Yeah seeing those new pictures I put up it does need it, question is do I go for lowering springs or coilovers? I'm thinking that springs would be cheaper but adjustable coilovers would be better in the long run, if I plan to do a conversion?

    Slam it on some JOM ones from LMF. I'd recommend them.

    Cheers for the comments guys, marc thanks but no thanks hahah

    I do agree with the coilovers actually, but I hear the old 'You get what you pay for' about these..
    I couldn't see any JOM ones on the LMF site, how about these?

    I know they are the cheapest but thats all I can afford these or lowering springs?

    Do your conversion first then get bilstein b8 shocks with 50mm KW springs

    suspension needs to be right so may aswell be after the conversion

    Newer picture now after a large session of machine polishing, only got half done but you can only see half in the picture



    If a mod can replace the old picture up top with this one Id appreciate it!

    PS I know I know, lowering is on the menu next
