Lowering Advice
Hi,

I am lowering 38mm on Tanabes using stock dampers and wanted peoples opinions on this who have done the same thing. How bad is the ride? I am just worried as roads in the UK are quite bad as they have a lot of potholes and so on.

NOt a good idea. Stock dampers just cannot handle such lowering even S-tech is pretty bumpy with stock dampers. I suggest you get some aftermarket shocks like KYBs, etc

even with kyb's ride is still a bitch if you go low as sportlines...

i'd suggest prokit unless you really want it low low, im thinking about selling my sportlines and getting prokit or coilovers
