I've changed my dampers and I did initially drop it 50mm all the way round.


The front looked like I'd just gone 2 far so its been changed back to 30 at the front and 50 at the rear....

Is this too much of a difference or should I set them the same....

It's all a matter of personal opinion and as long as it handles alright to you, then I wouldn't worry bout it.

50mm drop at the rear will probably incur a fair bit of camber and toe change though, so be prepared to scrub tyres unless you have top mounts and a full alingment in hand

I think I'll up the rears as they just go into the arches a little too much and dont match the front.....

The car handles amazingly, but compared to what I had before there isn't any a comparison as it was well knackerd

I use Tein Superstreets which are 4/4's - any heavier than that they tend to get quite uncomfortable for the road
