St180 Lowering Springs

Don't think there are any 50mm springs, not sure why you would need to go that low and ruin the handling.

Most go for either eibachs, H&R or mountune's Eibach springs. I have the mountune's but not fitted yet.

Maybe coilovers would give you the lows you want, but they're not cheap.

I'd mountune it up; I had BC coilies on my last car and cost around £700 just so I could put my back through hell.. But I suppose you don't buy them for ride comfort springs retain some of the virtually non existent comfort in the ST, and better on your wallet too :)

I've done 20k since March in mine. I can still walk and all that. People that say it's hard have obviously never been in a lotus or Caterham. There is nothing wrong with the ride at all, it suits the car well.

I bought Eibach Redline springs from Pumaspeed.

I can send you pictures if you would like, the car sits perfectly and I can't feel any noticeable difference in ride harshness.

Looks better and handles slightly better. I had my alignment laser aligned after but it wasn't off at all so if you do it you can save yourself the £100 or so for alignment afterwards.

Cheers

That's good then, yeah if you don't mind sending or posting some pictures so I can see what it looks like.

Surprised with the alignment, would have expected it to need it...

I made the same mistake when I lowered mine! I agree!!

I'm running the Mountune Eibach's and I'm happy with them, doesn't feel like it's been lowered drives nice and is as comfortable as the standard suspension, attachicon.gifImageUploadedByFord OC1422696938.389109.jpg
