    The original springs do break (mine did) but the shocks appear to be ok.

    Hi Deanash do you still have those springs for sale? Looking at lowering my 1.4 not sure exactly how to go about it or if its worth it? Been told to go 30-35mm. any help would be great. Cheers

    Mate - on a Furio I reckon you need at least 50mm drop - mine is on 50mm springs and it has only dropped about 35mm

    Check my pics on my thread.....

    BUT I guess it depends on the manufacturer eh ?

    saw a c2 1.4 the other day,sitting quite low,asked the guy what springs he got? kw springs 35mm drop...
    btw it is lookin very low,probably because he got 14"rims?!(my 15" are lookin small but this???)
    i lost cash on buyin vtr springs but didnt lower it as much,so probably going for 35 mm KW springs
