    Default Lowering advice

    Have spent the last couple of months trying to decide what route to go down with regards lowering The V6 CDTI. I had decided on Coilovers but only so ic ould adjust them. My only reason for this was because a couple of times a year i load the car up fully and drive to Italy so wanted to be able to lift the rear to make up for the additional weight. I was wondering though what difference lowering the car with a set of Eibach's would make to the load i could carry. Any number of people suggest that Eibach's teamed with Bilstein's will give me better handling the the coilovers.

    So basically what i need to know is what effect on my carrying ability will the eibach \ Bilstein have.

    Also does any one know which Eibachs i would need for teh v6 CDTI?

    As always thank you in advance for all your help and advice.
