Well its happened, front spring has snapped, so its a great excuse to lower it! Thought i would have a look around for some springs as ive already got Bilstein B4's so just need a set of new springs.
Started to look around today and i seem to have hit a mindfield of different possibilities! I dont want to spend a huge amount as spending over the past few months has got abit out of control so i was thinking around the £100 mark, as for the drop - im not sure!
I was only thinking 30mm at first but as mines an SRI im already dropped 15mm so i dont think the 30mm springs would make that much difference. So i thought humm maybe 35mm and get myself some Apex 35mm...but then i read this:
Which reads that the Apex springs didn't make much difference to his SRI and he had to chop a coil out of the spring, which i dont want to do to some new springs! But apart from the not lowering much id read good things about apex and they are on budget at £100 from speedbox.co.uk.
I then thought I like the way his car looks (nice and low) but i cant help think the ride is going to be awful and will end up going through lower arms and bushes like wildfire...which i dont want to happen!
So then i though PI springs, loweing 45mm front and 40mm rears. But then i thought is this too low, i have alot of speed bumps round me, is it going to rub and be a harsh ride?
Also, with the 40/45mm PI springs is there going to be a problem with the shocks i have, are they good enough to take the drop? and am i going to go though bushes, arms etc?
Would really like to see a car which is lowered on b4 shocks with the following springs:
If anyone can help that would be great, need to know how good each spring is and would love to see pictures of peoples cars with the above pleeeease
Thanks in advance!
