The lowest you can go on standard shocks is 30mm. I wouldnt go any lower as the shocks will bottom out and it will ride awful :frown
You should have a word with Euro, they should be warrantied.
As for the lowering springs, go for the best you can afford :thumbsup

Hey mate.
Dont go for 60/40. i dropped my bmw compact 50mm all round and its seriously low.
Im only on 17'' m sport alloys and they are inside of rym. lol. plus speed bumps are a pain in the ass.

I love the low look but wish i went for 40mm drop all round.

Hope this helps.

plus if you need a set of standard rear springs i got my old ones that are only 12 months old. you can have them for £20.
