    I have just aquired a set of coilovers for my SB and i have been told if i drop it low i will need a re-alignment .was just wondering .The last time i dropped a car was using lowering blocks years ago LOL.How long did it take you to fit them mate ?

    i love the stance and the rear bumper but not a fan of the pressed plates - they stand out a little too much for me! Wheels also look much better :)

    If I were you id add in an s-line spoiler to finish the look :)

    as youve pulled the suspension apart you need to get it all re aligned, if you dont then there is a very good change the wheel alignment will be out and youll get accelerated un-even tyre wear

    Looking a lot better mate, seems yours coils wound down a little at the rear, than the front though. Wheels are actually quite a big improvement, look far better than the standard sport alloys not too sure about font of plates, but you like them and that's all that counts bro.

    I'm interested to hear how those coilovers settle in, I was going to buy some of the cheaper ones, but talk of uncomfortable ride kinda put me off. How do you rate them against your original suspension? Enquiring minds want to know, lol....

    Looking good fella!

    Also interested to here the verdict on these coils...

    Would you say that the handling is improved? I believe the Sport and S-line are 10mm and 25mm lower than standard respectively.

    keep the threads greased up on cheapo coilies! I assume you are going to slam it properly at some point when you get some proper wheels?

    they will just give them a few days - a week they always do take a little while even just lowering springs take a while to settle

    I wouldn't say there was an average price for air, it really depends on what kit you have, whether you have digital management or not, what size tank, number of compressors, size of the compressors etc the list goes on.
