    Default Lowering Suspension

    What sort of cost would I be looking at to lower my CDTi 150 Design Auto.

    Any advice / Suggestions greatly appreciated.



    Thanks in advance

    it also depends on the brand of springs you choose to put on your car

    Eibach springs are as good as any
    I wish Eibach made regular height ones, Vx springs & shocks are complete crap.

    ^^What they said

    Eibach springs, about £130 from LMF. Bilstein B4 dampers are around £40 a corner, I think the cheapest place for those was EuroCarParts.

    Hey presto! Irmscher suspension without the VERY expensive stickers

    In terms of lowering the car, but retaining some ride comfort, are the Eibach the best, or is it worth spending more?

    The lower you go, the harder the ride will be. Eibachs only lower -30mm, but the handling is out of this world compared to standard. And they're one of the best-known and most respected brands out there. TBH, I don't know what else you could get that would cost more.
