    Afternoon,

    Thank you for your post.

    Were you looking for a springs and shocks kit or coilovers or did you have a drop in mind?

    In that case I'd suggest one of the following kits -

    You'll need to take around 15-20mm off any quoted drop.

    Links in the post above.

    They're both similar kits, I'd say the FK has the widest lowering range where as the JOM kit offers the best ride quality.

    We couldn't do any further discount on either unfortunately.

    Hi Damain I ve only just had my rears fitted and the drop is a lot more than i thought it would be on the highest set so the garage that fitted them have said is there any way they could have been fitted incorrectly as i have a quick look and the adjuster is in the top of the spring i will take some pics tomorrow when its not raining or is the the expected drop for the s=line or wrong springs in the kit? is there a way to check i dont have any rubbing but am conserened that it the springs drop anymore when settling in then it will rub.
    any advise suggestions
    thnks

    Afternoon,

    If you could confirm the part numbers on the springs and also take a picture if possible that would help.

    Afternoon,

    The adjusters are quite a way off the highest setting, you can actually go past the top being flush if that makes sense.
