    Think you can as low as 70mm,but will have to fit coilovers,can be expensive,but you do get that slammed to the floor look,if thats what you want,most have fitted elbach springs,which will lower a non sri/gsi car by upto 40 mm,and at only £130 its the way to go........

    yep, coilovers for more than -45mm from elite ride height.. or -30mm for SRi's.. and that can only be obtained on Pi springs.. eibachs will lower -30mm/-15mm max...

    coilovers will let you go -70mm but they will be over £550 just for the parts..
