    Angry Lowering - S*!t all difference

    Had my car lowered a couple of days ago (-35mm front, -40mm rear)
    Can you tell the difference? NO?! Me neither.
    The front looks a little lower, but I really can't tell the difference on the rear.
    Looks like coilovers may be the way forward (£££!)

    they would still need to settle in although the fronts will settle alot faster as thats were all the weight is get a few people in the back an they settle in a bit quicker aslo coilovers can be a very harsh ride from experience on my other cars

    Hmm... that doesnt look right at all...

    Remember though that your -minus figures are from a 'standard' ride height. Did you already have sports springs on the car ? Also, does the car feel a bit more tighter ?

    Also, they will settle probably another 5mm over a couple of weeks...

    My Mk4 Astra was the same - put Eibach 30/30 kit on and the front ended up higher than standard. Ended up with a 55/40 Weitec kit which got her where I wanted. Definately recommend the Weitecs.

    Well, it had standard sri springs on which I understand are -15mm from standard. So a -40mm drop should still give a good 2.5 cm on the rear. As you say, maybe they'll settle a bit. Or maybe not, and I'll have to load the boot with bricks.
