    Default Lowering!

    Hey,
    Wanted to lower my 1.4i Furio (2004) to a good height!

    Just wondering whats the lowest i could lower it to without ne problems.
    Also any tips on what springs to use and where from, dont really want to spend a bucket load like coilovers would require!

    Thanks!

    50-60mm drop easily without any problems but i cant see you getting that off just springs so it does not matter what springs you get.

    Now as for what springs to get i aint the foggiest as i dont take any notice of what springs people fitter or looked into it myself, but FK coilies is money well spent for an awsum stance .

    Iv got Eibach sportlines, cost 220 installed. they give 45-50mm front and 30mm drop rear. its evens the car out a nice amount and looks tones better and you do notice some handling improvements too.
    i would recommend if you dont want the expense of coilovers. mine hadn't properly settled when i took the photo's but i have some pics on my progression thread if you wanna look.

    Hope that helps mate. :thumb:

    nope, just a straight swap.
    i just wouldn't attempt installing yourself unless you know what you are doing, or have done it before.
