Hi guys an gals,

In peoples experience, how much lower does a brand new set of -20mm lowering springs sit than a 80k set of standard springs?

I dont really wanna lower my car, but i have a snapped rear spring, i like the stance of the car as it is now, but am worried if i buy new standard springs it will pick the back of the car up to 'as new' ride height, but at the same time, if i buy lowering springs i dont want it sitting that much lower with the 19's on.........
Any help/enlightenment would be greatly recieved


Also, anyone ever heard of these???

Thanks to all in advance

When I bought my R it had standard dampers with H&R springs which are 20mm lower and to be fair it sat quite low, the bottom f he undertray would catch on big speed bumps. I have since fitted b8 dampers which are a shorter shock but actually raised the ride hight by a small amount, so for me it now sits perfect. Personally I wouldn't put lowering springs on standard shocks, I'd buy always a spring and shock set. But what ever you do don't buy those ebay cheapo springs.

I don't think your old springs will have dropped too much over time as people do replace just the broken spring when theirs snap...

New springs will always sit heigh when standard as they will need to settle over a few weeks..

But H&R springs drop it a nice amount while remaining the comfort etc must admit on my Mk5 have had no problems with catching anything but just closes up the gap a bit.
