As above. Basically, Im lowering me car -60mil but I dunno wat kit to get
its either SPAX VSX kit for 275 or the SPAX PSX kit for 375.
Difference is dat the more expensive one is adjustable? Is it worth paying out 100 extra? bearing in mind its a 60mil drop so if i cum across any trouble, i can just whack the springs right up.I can also get away from those nasty speed bumps as well

I really need ur opinions now guys as I close to buying the cheaper kit. Is it worth waiting and saving up more money to get the adjustables?????????

not really shelling out an extra 100 quid if ur not gonna adjust them more than once, coz most peeps buy the adjustable ones n once set up to the chosen ride height dont adjust them again

Or shall i just 4get all these extra costs, slam it to the ground on the 60 mil normal kit and mod the arches to suit. I dont think its gona b worth it really, coz i mite not use it.
BUT, i just thought of sumthin: if i get a 2 litre shoved in next year, will i have 2 upgrade the suspension? wud the adjustables be alrite for either engine? in other words, shall i get the adjustables for the long run so i dont end up buyin a normal kit now and a different one at the time of the transplant??????????
im confused!!!!!!!
there must b sum1 out there who knows the answers!!!!!!!!

i adjust mine, soft for motorway driving, harder for round town. it take all of 2 seconds to adjust em.

ride is much better too, nowhere near as bouncy, very smooth, even lowered 60mm on mine.

i have a mixture frankee, i have koni top adjustable shocks, front -60mm apex springs and rear pi -60 springs (the rear 60mm apex springs lowered like 30mm)
when i say the ride is much better, thats over lowering springs and standard dampers. but its a million times less bumpy than m2rv_h full gmax 60mm kit. you get a little knob with mine which u stick on the top of the shocks and turn, its that simple to do. oh and handling in the wet is better than it used to be in the dry now. im very impressed and will buy them again.
