Hi

I am looking in to getting some new suspension but just need to know how low mine rufley is. attached is a pic of my car i want to go either standard or 30mm low as i think mine is about 80mm low. when i push down on any of the corners i get no bounce dose this mean my shocks have gone or could it be because my bump stops are touching my shocks any help would be greatly appreciated

Looks like it's about 35 - 40 mm lower. If you've just got lowering springs fitted, it could be the shocks are at or very close to the limit of their travel on compression. Uprated, shorter stroke shocks with a smaller body will cure that along with removing or better still cutting down the bump stops. Ideally matched springs and shocks (Uprated) would be the best bet.

30mm is usually more than enough to lower it as any lower will put more strain on CV joints as they will be deflecting more than they were designed to.

Here's some pics of mine

17s and standard springs.

Hope that helps.
