    Default Lowerd at last!

    Heya everyone,


    I bit the bullet and pulled in to LMF to get some eibachs. desided to keep th standard shocks untill they wear out as theres no point chamnging them if they do the job for the moment!

    its makes SUCH a differnce to the handling and the look of the car. nowhere near as harsh as i was expecting as well which is good lol

    im scared now that the suspention will fall off as it was me that fitted them lol ive driven it gentle and at speed and nothing bad yet. i will get the tracking done next month as well once theve all bedded in


    Before:








    To............... After:






    (sorry only had a phone to take pics with on Base)





    What do people think? on an SRi front bumper now and itll be done in my eyes!
