Nice one mate :D

Always thought the Eibach's were green, no idea why, it will handle loads better when you've got these on fella!

Nice one, how much do these cost nowadays? I've been thinking about lowering recently too - does the 30mm drop hit insurance much?

And as the others said, post up some pics when its done! :D

Got them from eGhey for £130 inc shipping - think they retail at £180 normally?

They are brand spanking too :D

Suspension is done - easy job really Matt's guide was a help :D

Took about 4 hours in all - wouldv'e been a lot less if i didn't have to have the nearside strut off twice because i was a numpty and but the spring on upside down . The offside strut and spring were just a ball ache from start to finish, spring clamps put on in the wrong place, then too high, so it was in and out like a ***** in a brothel The rears were actually more difficult than the fronts yet they took less time - weird

The car is definately lower, the springs need to settle though so it isn't as low as it will get when they have worn in a bit. Not quite the drop i was hoping for from the start but as said, it should improve. Handling is definately a lot better, she sticks like the poop to a blanket in the bends now

Before

Dirty old offside rear spring

After (still needs to settle though)

From the pics the ride height doesn't look any different at all - I keep telling myself it's going to settle. The handling is a massive improvement though - which is what it's all about :D

Yeah that still looks a lot like my car does now, but it would be great if you could post up some pics in a few weeks when they've settled a bit cos I'd love to see what it looks like with the standard alloys on..... :)

Front is a bit lower but the back still seems high - am going to be super p1ssed if this is as good as it gets. I need to park next to a standard IS to see really. :unsure:

Mate if you want just pop to mine and compare the height to my IS before she goes in the next couple of weeks!

She's fully settled!
