Shortened struts with lowered spring is another way to get a 50-60mm drop. KYB do them in the JDM market to suit Altezza's. You can also get Koni with different rings to mount the spring seat in.

Failing that any suspension specialist should be able to modify/shorten some struts for you.

I think TEIN springs will give you the biggest drop to.

i got 50mm tenzo R springs of ebay which was a hell of a drop honestly dont think it would go much lower, especially at the back!

THESE ones drop 50mm and are quite cheap.

lad posted up about these the other day and said they were a very good ride and made the stance superb, is there any chance of rubbing with a car load on the standard 5 spokes or do they tuck under the arches?

no rubbing at all unless i go over a speed bump thats really bad... the wheels tuck into the arches nicely when i got passengers in the back

Since this was brought up I thought I add a bit more info.

If you are looking at lowering springs, try to stay away from anything that lowers more than 35mm.

If you are making your standard suspension lose more than 35mm of damper stroke travel, the result will be a leaking damper fairly quickly.

It also mean you can be hitting your bump stop making the ride juddery and not comfortable.

If it comes down to lowering springs brand... Eibach is the best to go for.

And if you want to go lower than that, go for a quality "dual perch" coilovers as this type of coilovers allows adjustment to ride hight without losing damper stroke travel.
