Lowering- How To Guide

2 posts in this topic

Hi Chaps,

Got all the kit (i think!) for a lowering of my missuss 2005 Ka-eibach springs and Spax shocks but wondered ,before i go ahead with finding a garage to fit them,wether i will need to buy different tyres?

Currently we are running 15'' TSW's with 185/60/14 so would i need lower profile's?

Also anyone give me an idea of how much i should be looking to pay for fitment,plus i've the dreaded knocking noise when she goes over bumps at the moment so suspect some bushes have gone.

Would appreciate any advice/tips

Personally I would have left the Ka alone and got the worn out suspension bushes sorted. Looking at your Ka it looks superb. However as you have bought the lowering kit best to get it fitted professionally. Did the kit tell you by how much it will lower the car? This will give you a clue to the tire sizes. Dont forget to advise your insurance as they might like to load a bit extra on too.
