Yeah they can be lowered no problem. Various springs on the market will do the job. Mines lowered but the exhaust (twin 2.5) needed to be shifted slightly to avoid the rear inner guard

so have I. Mine is not that low that it should be a problem. Laminges is lower than mine. I wanted the gap from the rear reduced but I wanted to get around town with out taking out the front

so what your saying is four springs should do it. and bending the exhaust a tad. any idea of costs for the springs, I've already got a workshop so the labour I'll do myself.

DOC:
Talk to David Falson at EastCoast Suspensions. He can source the King Springs to do the job. Mine will be visiting there some time after I get it. He was able to give me a great mix setup for the EA to give best ratio of ride heights front to rear.

Yeah the only advice I would give is that you need to consider changing the dampers to match the new spring rate. As most people know cutting springs is a no no, but I have recently been told of a process of heating the spring while under compression to shorten the active lenght. To me this is starting to head in the same direction as cutting.

King seem to be the items of choice for many and they match them to Koni in most circumstances. 9/10 times you will find that they have the damper settings on the softest.

Pedders are butchers, but cheap, perhaps that is why they say, no bull.............no lamb, no chicken, just cheap nasty suspension.

Stick with kings and koni's.............
