Mk1 lowerd front

Any help is Great thanks.

the back should be around 15mm higher than the front!as thats what clios with a torsion bar came out the factory looking like!

the front is lower than the back for handling purposes. but theres nothing to say you have to keep it that way, aesthetically, i would imagine an even appearence would look better.

im talking about the 16vs and williams, i dont know if its the same for the others.

I will try and get some pics up in a bit.

Mines 40mm on the front (Avo Springs and Shocks)

Rear is around the 50mm mark - i really like the stance it has.

Thanks mate!
Hmmmmmmm, hard to tell at such a close photo.

Im running std Rsi 14" wheels at the moment it fooking hard to tell what looks good when all the pics are on different sized wheels!.

What size are valver std wheels? as Naples valver looks Smart lowerd 35 front..........!

Any rekomendations on lowering on 14" Rims..
 


std valver wheels are 15s m8

does depend a lot of what profile tyres u have, persoanlly i wouldnt bother lowering on 14"s

that seems fackin low for 35 mm!



Its -35mm spax front shocks and springs, and rear torsion bar is lowered a measured -35mm not 4 clicks or any daft method!
 


hhmmmmmm think im gonna go with a 35 mm drop all round. as ive measure that the front the the side skirt will be mighty close to the floor even at that drop.
 


Hey mate, there is pics of mine in my profile if you click ^^member profile^^. mine has been lowered 55mm front and about 70mm back, but to be honest, i still dont think its low enough! i think it definately looks better lowered slightly further at the back..

and remember, just because the springs say -35, the car wont actually go 35mm lower, it only means the spring is 35mm shorter than the standard ones, which compress more than the uprated ones. think that makes sense?!? lol

^ GOD DAM THAT LOOKS LUSH.

I really rekon the wider arches on the 16v and willy make so much difference.
The ass on My rsi look Hoorible!
