    Default Lowering kits

    Im thinking of getting a lowered suspension kit but i dont want to spend £300-£400. Is there any tidy cheaper ones out there that people have got on their car or does anyone know of any tidy ones?

    My car is lowered already with 400mm springs and standard shocks but its clunking/twang and doing my head in! Ive got the rubbering at the bottom of the spring but its still making the noise. If i get the whole kit do you think it would stop the noise.

    thanks dean

    400mm springs lol

    Im sure someone else will be able to give you more info, but i imagine if you popped some uprated shocks on all round, bilsten b4's for example that would stop the shocks hitting the limit
