    Yet Another F***ing Suspension Question

    Hi all,

    My 2.0T s-line could do with some suspension work, so while it's on the ramp I was thinking about new springs/shocks. I want the car to sit a bit lower, nowhere near slammed (obviously as not going for coilovers), but just enough to sort out the way it sits a bit. More importantly i'm looking for a progressive firmness to improve handling/feel without normal driving being too harsh.

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers

    Most springs and shocks kit use progressive springs.

    Did you have a budget in mind?

    Na not really, all I know is don't wanna go full coilover as im not hitting the track very often. Just stop it getting so unsettled and lower it a bit.

    Ap coilovers are progressive and are "30% uprated, ideal for fast road use".

    I can vouch for them being great dailys.
