In Topic: Fiesta Mk7 1.25 Lowering Springs

13 June 2013 - 10:56 AM

Fitted the springs, fairly simple process when you follow the guide on here. Rear springs took about 20 minutes each, front ones took a couple of hours each. As I thought, the springs still worked great, even though they are for the 1.6, and give the car a much sportier stance! Handling is also vastly improved around the corners. I can go 10-20mph faster around corners that before it would have felt as if you were going to loose control. The ride is a little firmer, but nothing to complain about. Overall I'm very happy I fitted them, and would recommend them to anyone else!

The pictures attached show before and after, the after picture is the one directly from the side, and the before picture is at more of an angle :)

Cheers for the reply. Yeah that's what I had been thinking, I've also messaged Lo, but no reply as of yet. How much heavier can the front of the 1.6 actually be though compared to the 1.25, surely it can't be THAT different. As long as the car would look lower all round I wouldnt really mind :P

The dent seems too big to try that method :P It's about 30cm square... There is split paint above the dent, but there's no folds in the metal. I'll attach pictures when I next get the chance :) Is the interior ridiculously difficult to get off in one piece then? Because if so then I'll leave it rather than ruin my interior ;)
