      No worries buddy!

      Err Eibach are like roughly 15-20mm.
      You can get 30/20mm springs.
      Also Regal (Pi) and Spax do 20mm all round springs.

          Softest? Surely if you have a problem with ride height you want harder springs to stop the drop rate?

          Also I have a stupidly steep drive and live on a hill. I also park two wheels up a curb and have many speed bumps to drive over. What I did is parked my car up with the lowest parts of the car above the highest things I may drive over then measured the gap. I actually realized it's a bigger gap then you'd expect.

                  2x18mm bolts on shocker leg to hub, 18mm nut on anti roll bar linkage (there is also a recess for a spanner on the back side of the link to stop the nut rotating), the top mounts are T40 torx with a 18mm nut.

                  Rear just loosen lower bolt on damper...with the wheel off get someone to put some weight on the hub and pull spring out. I'm sure the rear damper bolt is 17mm.

                  You probably know how to do the rear springs but I thought I would tell you anyway. I'm sure it's forecasted Storms tomorrow in derby so your not far away so may be there too. Good luck

                      I'll get for you mate. If you look under the car it is fairly obvious. Also you can jack both rests together if you get it level.




                      Cheers for info 888.
