    Apex Springs - A reviews?

    Snapped rear spring so an opportunity to get new lowering springs. Anyone used Apex? What's the general consensus?

    Thanks

    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Dane and Tuffty both run/ran Apex springs on their S3's, they rate them.

    Read the reviews, does anyone with the apex springs fitted have issues carrying several passengers I.e sagging load?

    If your wanting cheap springs then they're one of teh best out there.

    The car will go lower with several passengers but this will happen with all springs.
