Lowering springs

Postby jordanfaf » Sun Apr 03, 2016 4:51 pm

Looking to lower the car a bit and hopefull improve cornering a tad. Did a bit of looking for springs online and found a brand new set of Direnza 40mm lowering springs for 125 euro. A good chunk cheaper than the Eiback pro set at 215.

Is the Eibach set worth the extra cash and does anyone know roughly what a garage would charge to install them?

Buy the Eibachs , there is more to springs than just making them shorter and Eibach are one of the market leaders backed up by lots of R and D , don't go more than -30mm ,I will send you a PM re a decent price on the Eibachs .

Second on the Eibachs Jordan. Also quite liked the H&R ones too.
