lad i know,
bought himself a sweet retro style ride, couldnt wait to save for the lowering kit, cut the springs and slammed it to the floor,
first day out and smashed the sump to feck,

i like the guy and feel genuinely bad for him,

but to do this to a perfectly good car is a fools errand.

tbh, its a bodgers half-arsed way around a completely OVER copied idea,


lower a car too much and its ruins the handling of the car, this is simple logic,
so you've modified it to make it worse,

this is called "fecking something up"

now, esp on a RAT car this defeats the ENTIRE object of of a RAT car imo, it should work BETTER than a stock car but LOOK worn/worse,

otherwise its just a shit, fucked old car that smashes its engine into the floor when you drive it,

and despite trying to look original and cool,

you end up on the back of an AA wagon heading for the scrap yard, both FEELING and LOOKING a complete vagina.

i think we should make a sticky for this although its frowned upon it okay if you dont go ott with the chop take it slow with the cutting and do it to decent ones and weld them to the cups you should be fine and remember low cars are cool FACT

thanx nitromors :gheyer ,


@miniman, yep low cars are deffinately cool, i managed to do it , i cut the springs while they were on the car lol. bit dodgy i know lol , but everyone tells me they done it and its ok, it went really good , didnt lower it to much as wouldnt have been able to locate the springs when i let it off the jack ,i just wanted to get rid of that stupid arch gap . also milton keynes is home of speedbumps ect , and its hard enough getting round now lol. allthough i want to go lower :bow , im thinking of taking them out properly and welding them in , but i might just get some 60 mil springs and hope its low enough . i looked at coileys for it , but there like 495 :mad . i ah one bad thing with cutting the springs , the first time i let it off the jack , i drove it and heard a bang, the rear ns spring had not seated properly and jumped. was sitting fookin low , looked awesome , but i had to seat it properly, think my osf top mount is going tho , as it squeeks over bumps lol. but still a work in progress :D , i think next is to satin black the whole car and maybe do orange stars on the roof :tu

I fitted an 80mm lowering kit front and rear on my mk2 saloon but was never happy as it still looked normal height. Now you can see it's quite low. that was 3 coils from the front and 2 from rear chopped out.
