thought it would look lower than that to be honest - but its sitting really well fella and coming along nicely. it'll probably settle over the next day or two....

@gord, i would've thought that dropping 50mm would require coilovers?? could be wrong but the lowest spring drop i knew of was 40mm from PI i think it was??

to be honest i thought it would be lower too but ive not done many miles since fitting the springs(work to home home to the gym)so they'll probably still need to settle in.i'm happyer with the way it sits as mine sat really high at the backend 99model.will be driving it too work over the next week so i'll take more pics then.

cant afford coilovers the now :crybaby: just bought a house and got married the springs were bought from a shop on e-bay with the markings on the box saying 40mm front 50mm rear

here's how it sat before the springs and the wheels

(the pic on my avatar was taken with 4 alloys and tyres in my boot hence it looks lower than it was)

That doesn't look really low to be honest mate. Also are the rear wheels 7.5J wide? I had 8J wide rears wth et38 offset, lowered 30mm and had rubbing issues. With your narrower rear tyres it gives you 5mm more clearence which makes all the difference :) ;)

Looks nice. Great colour too................... :whistling:

they are 8" wide but runnin 215 tyres the euro stretch look B) how many miles would you peeps say i'll need to do before they settle?ps me never wanted to go really low to many speed bumps about my way just wanted to get the wheels sittin better in the arches.

had too many really low cars,vx220, mr2mk1 and mk2, escort rs turbo cab,sierra cosworth,fiat punto gt,fiesta xr2i and mk2 xr2 etc lowered them all silly amounts liked the look hated havin to plan every route to avoid speed bumps and bad roads it became a pain or as the wife said i became old!!!! :lol:
