Question Dropping MY01 RS

Can I lower my MY01 RS properly by just installing shorter springs and still keep some type of control on the car? What do ya'll think? I want it primarily for looks, but I don't want to lose the edge I got since it's AWD.



Specialists! Throw me a bone!



How low is too low?

Get the right kind of springs, and you won't have a problem.

Basically, just don't put on some cut springs.

Thumbs up

Go with a set of the Eihbach(sp) pro springs. They will lower your car about 3/4 of an inch and will work well with stock shocks/struts. The are also progressive, which means they don't really tighten up untill they are really compressed. This gives you decent around-town driving but holds the car at speed around corners.

a good start would be to look into the suspension / tires / brakes forum, that's where these q's belong. As for how low is too low? depends...
what tires you want to run, how stiff you want it... bla
