  • -50mm lowering at the front

    how many people are useing thees springs cos i have been thinking about lowering my car for a while and love the realy low front end look... just wondering bout the practicality of the springs i.e does the front end scrape when goin over lil speed bumps.. or what about multi story car parks, and getting on nd off dynos ???? any feed back would be much appreciated guys

    i have daps fitted, they're lowering the car by 20 mil, that clears speed bumps alright yet still makes the car handle loads better and sit loads better. i'd say 50mil would defo scrape on speed bumps.

      Yeah, 50mm would scrape on a few speed bumps imo.. I'm also on daps, which are absolutely brilliant... No scrapes yet and they've been on over 6 months... Have to
      Be careful though when parking on pavement/up curbs etc as it can get quite close..

      However, I'm not sure how low vxrmattblacksheep has gone on his kw coilovers, or what trouble he may have had/not had.. Looks good though!

            I have asked this question a billion times lol and everyone has said it doesn't scrape however on some multi story carparks it can and on some curbs it can which is why I still haven't made my mind up

            the peeps I've asked who are running on them have said they are a little more carefull on speedbumps and one who I asked said there is a multistory carpark his scraped on but not on others :S

            still can't make my mind up but do find it amusing how too people on daps can tell you the sportlines scrape

              Yeah, because I'm sure even the lowest eibach doesn't go 50 does it? Or any spring for that matter. Maybe I'm just wrongly informed lol, but I'd maybe say coilovers at 50mm mate

                      There is a Photoshop on red astra that is low and there is also a red astra on sportlines with ids which is sure to make it lower than the spring setup on normal vxr suspension would take it.
