    Arrow Do you think I could get just the rear coilovers? Gsi sitting unlevel

    I have bought a set of 40mm lowering springs off a Vec gsi but now fitted on my gsi the front looks mints but the rear sits higher than the front slightly and it's driving me mad, could I get just the rear coilovers as don't want a full set, or where could I get a rear set of springs from what match the front.....I want the back to be about 10mm more so it looks level, cheers

    I bought all 4 springs and fitted them, don't know what to do really, I even thought about having the springs heated up and lowered the extra 1/2 inch :-/

    Has anyone got the rear coilovers left as I've heard a few story's about people removing them?

    Cheers

    Depending what engine you have they may have been the wrong "strength".
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    You can remove the rubber seats that the rear springs sit in can't you (sure some one here did it with a silver pre-face SRi) - his sat much better at the back.

    Good idea I will just put a piece of hose pipe on the end of the springs just to make sure :-) cheers
