    Make sure they grease the adjuster threads on the coilovers to stop them seizing in the future, but I think you have covered more than enough, generally people just replace the top mounts while the shocks are out. how low you going?

    The old springs have sagged? Are the coilovers new? Coilover springs shouldn't sag.. not noticeably anyway. Yes good idea about replacing worn bushes/mounts etc

    it'll be worth chucking it into a garage to get it tracked back up pal, car looks good though

    Audi s3 goodwood green, BAM, n249 delete, 80mm TIP, s2000 air-filter, new turbo, ap coil overs, lots of poly bushes, 15mm spacers all round rolling on 18'' RSTT's
