    Default Advise please, on lowering 1.9 150 hatch

    I'm running on snowflakes and want to lower it very slightly, as i don't want to make the ride any harder than it already is. i have sri suspension and was thinking of using APEX springs on SRI shocks, as iv spent all my funds on a front bumper. And they are cheap. Whats the minimum i can lower it and will it make the car ride hard.
    This question must of been asked loads Sorry. I need the geometry figures, so i can get the rear end reset on a four wheel geometry. Thanks Alan
