    How much did they lower the car, and did you change anything else or have anything else adjusted? Throw up a pic.:yes:

    Did you do just the springs or did you also replace the shocks? How have you found the ride so far? as a few on here have try'd H&R springs and found them to be a little bit on the hard side.

    Did you get away with not using tie bars?

    I found the H&Rs quite firm, but they lower the front end enough to make the car handle! I'd definitely recommend new or uprated shocks though though, makes a huge difference in ride.

    The H&Rs didn't really lower the back enough to effect the camber by much from my experience.

    Got my eibach 20mm fitted during the week, great ride quality now. Surprisingly better on the speed bumps.
    Got the back spaced by 15mm, but changing to 20mm during the week.
