    just wondered as i know you need shorter drop links when you fit the coilovers!

    also do you think it's worth changing the bushes all round for powerflex ones when lowering the car??
    I didnt change anything but i did break a rear droplink when i was fitting the nearside rear spring in. Didnt cost much to change but was abit of a beech to replace.

    Before i did lower it i changed the front arms and front bushes as my car was all over the place. If your car is not handling and there is some play in the wheel and you have the money, change the bushes, arms and springs. If your going for coilovers, you will need shorter droplinks depending on how low you go. And it probably worth changing the arms and bushes.

    well my cars handling fine at the moment, so i'm assuming the suspensions in good condition, wont know until i take it apart though i guess!

    hoping i can get away with just some eibach pro line springs though!

    looking to do it in the next 2 weeks so will post up before and after pics!!
