    with everything else I need to pay for on the rebuild I've decided to just go for springs for now.
    I settled on the Eibach Pro kit at $600 delivered and 7 day delivery.
    Thats a fixed 35 mm lowering all around.
    We had a measure up today and we reckon that will be enough to look good without making the ride too stiff.
    I sold my Renault Megane RS 250 after 9 months of back pain because of the stiff ride and I dont want that again.
    Thanks for the info guys, much appreciated and pics will be on the project page when fitted.
    Cheers
