    Default Which lowering springs for my V6 CDTI?

    Hi all

    just after some advice on which springs to get for my Z30DT?

    only want a 30mm drop

    doesnt seem like there's much choice out there and don't want to spend a fortune

    what are you using?

    cheers

    Don't you fancy 40mm bud? The PI's I have where cheap and cheerful and still going strong, 19's fit nicely in the arch and I don't catch anything on speed bumps or my drive...

    I have used Spax ones in the past and found them to be really good. Dont forget to get the 4 wheel laser check afterwards.
