    Talking She's low!

    After a long time saying i'm going to do it, i've finally got the car lowered. 80mm, Gmaxx springs all round, and surprisingly comfortable given that they're budget springs. Really chuffed with the way it sits now, the wheels just fill the arches, spot on in my opinion!

    thats more like 40mm no way 80. if it was 80 u would be scraping the floor plus ur standard shocks would b knackered.

    Looks good, 40mm is max on std shocks as they will not last long otherwise.

    There's been some confusion over what mill the springs are to be honest. I payed for 60s giving me a 40 drop, which it would appear is right. But I could only see the number 80 on the springs, so I just went with that. Either way, I'm pretty chuffed with the end result, come to think of it, in comparison to a friends car, lowered 45mm on Gmaxx, 40 is sounding about right.

    Yeah, given the reaction, I'm fairly certain they're not 80mm springs now Probably got the 60mm I paid for, just couldn't see it stamped anywhere, where as I could see ".80" on both the box and the springs. Either way, I think it sits just right. Glad to see people have more of an idea on what to expect than I did though
