    Question Let's lower her... help me decide!

    Hi all,

    I've decided to lower the Veccy below, how low should I go and what brand is best to go for?

    I do around 16K miles a year. Sometimes motorway. Pics of yours lowered might be helpful too!

    Cheers,

    You'll get a flood of answers saying the same thing: Eibachs, which lower it by 30mm from standard, or 15mm from the SRi/GSi ride height.

    Oh right so these are the preferred brand?

    Are APEX a good brand of suspension? Just found some 35mm one's cheap.
