    Default Help needed sourcing lowering springs

    I'm about to buy a set of lowering springs for my Estate.

    Please point me to the cheapest source for Eibach, Koni, Apex or PI springs.

    I found the following at www.motorsportworld.co.uk:

    - Apex -35mm: 109 pounds
    - PI -30mm: 120 pounds


    I can't decide which set to purchase, as I'll be using Kayaba OEM equivalent shocks with no intention of getting shorter ones.

    Thanks! I don't know why, but I tend to buy the Apex for the -35mm lowering. But I'm open to advices on where to buy, if you know they are cheaper.

    I also found some Koni -30mm, but they are out of stock at motorsportworld

    I used the PI 40/45 springs that level the car up and I ran themwith standard shocks on my previous Vec which was an LS. I ran them for 9 months or so with no problems.

    For 17 pounds more, would you guys get Eibach -30mm instead of the Apex -35mm ?
