Right, prior to my post yday, i hav def decided 2 wait longer 2 buy aprpoer adjustable kit. wud i b betta off gettin coilovers though?
Will it b THAT much betta.
Also I understand that adjustables only adjust damping rate and coilovers adjust this and ride height. - but isnt damping height the same as ride height??????????????????
IM CONFUSED EVEN MORE NOW!!!!!

I wana get a Spax kit that lowers up to 60mil. I found an adjustable kit that does dat but not a coilover kit. Does ne1 know if they do a 60 mil kit
help wud b much appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

get the coilovers if ur gonna adjust it more than once as it will b a waste of money
coilovers can be bought with either height and stiffness or a combination

The spax kit i wana get is both m8. i think i mite get coilovers but i dont wan waste 500. Itll b gud coz i can adjust it to a low setting to look gd wen i get my 17's, then get the arches butchered accordingly so i can get the full drop.
can sum1 tell me the difference between adjusting ride height and adjusting damping and how u do both?????

Damping is the travel of the shock IIRC if you go over a bump, ie how hard or soft you will feel the bump, the ride height speaks for itself.

95p is for the labour cost of putting them in the box and sealing it with sellotape
