L i s t en t o m e !


U go buy lowering springs, right!

the lowering springs are also stiffer than ur standard springs (cos they are shorter and the coils are closer together).

u fit springs.

Go out a drive and say "fuck me, this hadles shit hot now!"

Job done

all lowering springs are uprated, 'stiffer' than ur standard ones , if just get springs then i would have a go at it urself, it really aint that difficult and i'm no mechanic! haynes manual comes in handy for torque settings ect....
