    Ye they will be fine with standard, if you go 45 or lower that's when you need to change the shocks but 35 should be fine guys

    ive got a budget of about 100 quid so found a new set for 95 quid so i think ill go for the apex and give them a go, i also saw cheap jamex springs but the look a lil cheap so im not going to risk it,

    will the springs only lower 35mm if i get the 35mm ones or could it go lower after a lil time???
