    I'm looking at purchasing some suspension
    I know there loads of threads about suspension for 8p

    Just wonderIng if anyone's fitting cup suspension and what the drop is like, and comfort as opposed to the sport suspension
    Also looked at v-maxx adjustable coilovers

    I really don't know what to go for
    I'm not looking to go really low but Im looking for suspension that gives a nice drop but is comfortable and not bouncy Like my aps were on my old 9n
    I've got around £500 budget but I don't want real budget stuff

    Cheers

    V Maxx are good dude i bought mine off of N8 on here and they are very comfy and thats on the lowest sort of setting.

    Fitting takes a couple of hours and the fronts require a special tool for spliting the hub but very easy.

    The back can be Very easily without even going into the boot.

    We have the KW V1 Basic reduced at the moment so it's a good time to buy them. Give me a shout if you need any prices.

    I also got my V Maxx from N8. Top bloke, awesome service, and I'm very happy with them.

    Just for info. You don't need the hub splitter tool bit at all.

    S-Line is around 15-20mm lower then standard but as mentioned all go around 65mm so you'll get a good 45mm+ out of them.
