full lowering kit



  172 16v
What do you actually want to gain from lowering it?



need to change front shockers coz the strut tops dont sit on the mounts theres bout 10 mm gap between strut top and the bit that it should be sat on it was lowered 40 mm just on springs with standard shock so ive put standard springs in it today and its just the same so pee'd off!! any ideas why its like this mate

Is the rose bearing which the spring pan seats against the rite way up? The black rubber section that fits the underside of the arch will have alot more sideways play if it is and maybe the 10 mm

cheers cm

There should be a gap between top part and the bodywork. It only really stops the strut falling out when you jack up the car / get air over a bridge. The weight of the car pressing down on the rubber donut holds it in place.

If you've turned the wheel they will move so that could explain it. If they were attached to the body work, you wouldn't be able to turn the steering. The whole strut turns as the steering does, nence the need for the top bearing.
