    Default Are there any possible issues when lowering?

    I am about to get a set of 30mm eibachs for the SRI & just before I do I want to know if there would be any issues at all i.e rubbing arches etc.

    Will the ride be really harsh?

    Thanks in advance

    Unless your running with stupidly big alloys there will be no rubbing and the ride is only very slightly stiffer than the sri setup, but the handling compared to the standard set up is far far better.

    Only down side of lowering is that you may have to replace the shocks or other suspension components sooner as you are changing their ride height from what the origninal components are used to.
