    I have removed the adjusters on the rear so the rears will now go now lower, however im still after another 10mm drop to level the sills :/ I understand that i could just raise the front but we all know that would just be the easy way
    Is there another set of springs i can buy for serious drop (rears only)?

    Might my bilstien rear shocks be trying to drag the rear up at all, and if replaced with the ones with the set, make the car drop a bit more?

    Or is there any other way of making the back lowering - trying to avoid adding more weight to the rear?

    Thanks

    Thanks ive decided (rightly or wrongly) to try out some gunsons spring clamps, not compressors. The clamps are designed to permanantly mount to the springs as a bodge way to lower standard springs or raise them for use with caravans
    But I'll let you know how I get on with them, I know there not ideal but it's worth a try
