    Hi All
    Have finally finshed the suspension upgraded with the lowering springs now fitted, i ordered 15mm drop at the rear, yer right, and a 30mm drop on the front but me thinks the front could do with a little more,
    what you guy's think

    Looks good to me....
    The springs will bed down and settle as you use it. They do take some time to settle and get slightly lower in my experience...

    Absolutely correct, the full drop does not take immediate effect

    Take a measurement from the bottom of the wheel to the arch and then check it again in about 8 weeks. If it has not dropped then speak with the supplier
