    Hello there everybody. I have reached the stage were i am now going to get a lowered/stiffened suspension for my car. Should i go for fully adjustable or a fixed drop and damping? there are the obvious advantages but i'd only leave it in one setting for the rest of its life anyway.. I dont only want the drop for looks but for handling also.
    I have 225/40/18 rubber on my car on ET 35 so how low can i go without problems?
    I am considering uprating my rear anti roll bar too, any recommendations?
    Sorry for the long and boring post, all help appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    A well proven successful suspension set up is:

    Bilstein or Koni shocks
    Eibach or H&R springs

    Neuspeed front and rear anti-roll bars or VW Golf 4Motion rear anti-roll bar


    All depends how much you have to spend. If money is no object and you want a great setup, go for the Neuspeed front and rear ARBs, Bilstein shocks and EIbach or H&R springs. That setup along with some negative camber will have you wondering why you didn't do it sooner!
