    why not leave them on whole then see how it goes and if they bug you cut the top half off while still on the car.
    it's pretty easy

    well ive already got the standard sport suspension fitted, and they list my new ones at about 35/40mm drop on a standard car.. and less on ones fitted with sports

    so im guessing will be about 20/25mm lower than i already have


    also i know how to remove the rear shocks they ive done those before and very simple, but ive not done the front and have seen couple different methods suggested, has anyone got the easiest route? or link to it

    thanks alan
