    Default Lowering Springs Advice.

    The modding is all about to start people, the windows are all being tinted on Saturday and then it's a trip to MIJ on Tuesday as i have booked the car in for the exhaust but i need to purchase a set of lowering springs now as the second hand Jamex ones i was going to get have gone.
    Now funds are going to be limited after the windows and exhaust get done so a need some cheap springs that will lower the car the most (Eibach's are slightly too dear), any advice.

    Have had a look on LMF's website and they list some Supersport springs that will lower my GSi by approx 45mm, anyone used these or know what they are like.

    They offer 2 different kits,Prokit is not as low as the Streetline kit.Had all versions of Eibachs on loads of my modified cars, and they are a quality product

    I ordered the Supersport kit for mine originally. There were none in stock anywhere in the Uk and the German manufacturers were also out of stock until they did another production run of them which was about two months away. I think kdadidogg (sp) has got Supersport's on his saloon.

    I ended up going with the Spax PSX adjustable kit (shocks and springs) and love it, you wont find it listed on any Spax site, but they do sell it off the shelf and had it to me next day, the ride is awesome on it now, it goes round corners and roundabouts like it's on rails and it lowered it about 35mm. Also I can adjust all the shocks for hardness with the turn of a key on each. The only downside, the front shocks are a bit of a git to fit as me and Dean found out because the adjuster is where the allen key would normally go to hold it while you do it up but if you get these give me a shout and I'll tell you how to fit the damn things lol
