Springs & Suspension

Any one here lowered their car?

I have found a set of King Springs that lower the car 1.5inchs but I want to go lower to help lower centre of gravity. Doesn't have to be any stiffer than it is now...any suggestions??

These were $140 a pair plus fitting which came in at about $600 with full alignment, etc.

Has anyone come across any tower bars, front and back, and adjustable coils for the Fiesta??

On a side note, is anyone doing anything in Europe with these cars? Websites or forum info would be handy...cheers

Re: Springs & Suspension

Off topic Cypher, but I was talking to Ratt and he said to contact you about your Fiesta. I'm in Canberra as well and considering on of these cars and was hoping you could offer you opinions on the car and maybe email me a few pics.

Thanks

Cheers

Re: Springs & Suspension

of you go lower you may have lower gravity centre but it is unlikely that you will curve better.
the roll centers should be kept in mind when adjusting the height of the suspension and usually this should not exceed 3 to 4cm (1.5" appr.) .
its very common that cars lowered to 5 , 6 or even 10 cm curve much worse than when they had the original height.
of course a lowered car is always more beatiful...
