    The only way you will go lower is by getting springs made and then you'd need to get aftermarket dampers which means that coil overs will just be as cheap a route to go as anything else.

    I do already have after market dampers but thought i would ask first & did think that i would have to follow the custom spring route or Coilovers ....

    So with question answered, decision to make

    It's the Spax Psx, Shorter & Rebound / damping adjustable
    http://www.spaxperformance.com/modern_products-psx.php

    I just cannot seem to get the rear to sit as low as perhaps it should, Currently on -35 Apex, Thats the reason for asking ..
    Will do on the decision front ..

    Cheers

    Same wheels & tyres here 225x45x17... It is almost as if the car is just not heavy enough to compress the springs .. Or maybe they are just the wrong weight rating ...

    Do you have a pic of yours ? I have ordered some -45mm today, Hopfully that will cure it
