    Default Lowering Springs H&R

    i know theres loads on here about springs but not seen much on these one
    Thinking about getting H&R 35mm springs

    Just wondering anyone on here got these on there car?(standard Vxr) don't want it too low just want it sitting nice and wanting handling improved so how does it handle with these?
    Also how does it cope with speed bumps as where i live there is plenty

    Im fairly new to this so just needing some advise
    Thanks

    That's the springs I've got mate

    Sits flush with the arches and sits nicely in the road. Had them on when I bought the car so can't compare to standard vxr springs for handling but the car feels nicely planted through corners with the H&Rs.
    Speed bumps you just have to careful with and also multi-storey car parks with ramps etc. With these springs and a burg splitter I have four inches of clearance at the nose of my car to the road

    Put the car back to standard and traded it in overwise I would still have them on. Look good and perform well!

    Vixxers look nice guys, turning your griffin black is easy, for the front, I just eased mine off with a flat screwy, just be careful not to break the clips. For the rear, I used boiling hot water and an old storecard to ease it of, cleaned off the excess residue. Make sure you prep the badges aswell before re applying them. For the rear I used 3m sticky tape. Hope this helps ☺
