Just the springs would make the standard SS set up. Better than the non-SS but 'interesting' at the back end because of a lack of damping. If you want to achieve a good result, springs alone are not enough. You need konis or one of the other aftermarket solutions.  :thumb:

    Ah so just the springs lower it but don't help with the uneven look front to back. The konis sound interesting but its the costs. Il suggest the full thing to the dealer and see what they say

    Just the springs. See any SS car without konis for what you are planning. I'll try to find my original thread.....

    now i know more about the lowering and Konis, cheers for this now i need to know about spacers. i think the rear needs about 15mm on each side, no so much at the front as they fir the arch quite nicely.

    oh and bulbs, i would like whiter/bluish tin DLR's and sidelights, Are these double filament or just one bulb?

    It doesn't. They are going to switched I think.

    Great looking car. You won't regret it.... Get it bought! :)
