I have H&R springs on the Drain with B4billies they are great had no probes can't say there better or worse as it's all iv had on my v6 ( and yes it's lowered)

Now do as Andy has said and go buy them before your car rots away I'm sure this has been going on for more than 2 years now and I wouldn't buy fraz flowers cream cakes are a far better

lol@ callyman hehe
i have the original shocks with very old spax springs and the rear shocks have gone cos the car is bouncy ,so when i do get a new kit on there it will drive a lot more nice and i only have one ling long wheel on the back now until march when i will replace the back two tyres with new ones but not ling long.

you ask andy when his mate who did the clutch for me when he took it for a testdrive and he said my car drives really not that good so im looking forward to getting the right kit .

yeah there are a few videos where people have changed the suspension to eibach springs and bilstein b4 shocks.

Because i had a spring that broke and at the time i had the offer of these used springs where my mate charged me a tenner with them fitted which lowerd the car but we didnt change the shocks as i had to get it through the mot,i know the mistake i made and wish i hadnt bypassed it so thats why now i want a much better improved kit.
