    Default About to lower - questions help?

    Hi all,

    I'm preparing to have my 1.8 lowered and have been doing a lot of reading / learning here, but i have a few questions:

    I have the common knocking noises so whilst its being lowered i'd be aswell to replace the drop links and arbs. Is there anything else that i should get replaced whilst its being lowered?

    I'll be going for the eibach 30mm drop springs and uprated droplinks.

    Also how much should i expect to pay for parts / fitting?

    any recommended garages or members to carry out the work in Fife area?

    thanks!

    I did mine recently with the help of a mate... A dead easy thing to do yourself if you have the tools. A garage will charge arround £100 for springs and top mount bushes. The ARB bushes will be sliglty more...

    If your going to swap bits out I would chaneg the following...

    Springs (obviously)
    Top mount bushes
    Drop links (dont get cheap ebay ones.. Get either GM ones or Sab ones)
    ARM Bushes

    Make sure you swap the plastic covers on the bottom of the springs also (easy to miss)....
