    Wow that needs slammed and set right

    Rear with the way you have measured it id say 70mm drop front's need sorted with showing dif ride height's on either side id say 80/90mm drop fella...Coilover's unless you can get a decent set of spring's n shock's to do the job,my vote everytime will be coilover's so it can be set to how you feel it suit's your own need's

    Drivers side is always lower though because theres always someone sitting in there

    It can't go that low because the wheels will be hitting the body you nutter

    Ive neva set mine up with someone in the driver's seat i set it up so every corner is same as the other side...Tyre's need to be in the arches unless your just looking for a nice ride height but arch need's to be close to the tyre

    I mean the springs are always lower/worn on the drivers side, not that I had someone in there when I measured

    I might try H&R springs which are 55f 35r

    Only reason i dont use shocks/springs is cause if i paid a fortune on them and fitted them id be like nope that need's changing with coilover's i can mess about with them and change them to suit everytime

    Yea thats what I thought as well, but everyone keeps telling me that it will ruin the ride if I put cheap ones on(which I would).
