Question experience with springs

Hi Folks,
I'm thinking of lowering my Wagon with springs (due to lack of money) like 35/30 mm; 1.37795/1.1811 inch.
Has anybody a picture, how it would look like?

Has anyone experience with springs?

I love that thread, but 99% are using coilovers.

I like them. Ride quality is almost identical to stock.

That sounds good. They aren't even that expensive.
How low is it actually? I mean, it's still a wagon, and I use it as a wagon

Not low at all really. There are plenty of other better quality springs that'll give you about the same drop, but for my budget I like my Eibachs. Just what ever you do don't look at Tein s-techs.

Actually, even the German forum lead to eibach or h&r (which is too expensive).

no, you just stopped reading.

this isnt a picture request forum.

there IS a picture forum, and has a wagon specific thread with HUNDREDS of pictures of wagons running all variety of springs/coilovers/custom suspension/whatever you could ask for. read it.

Is there anyway to lower the car like 40/30 and not only 30 in the front?
I mean, I found this, but never heard of KAW or I found some Lowtec, but I don't know, how the quality is of Lowtec.
