before



after



18/8 avanti phantic wheels et35 and 690kgs each

225/50/r18 tyres at 690kgs each

lowered on the bar at the front and with 60 mm t4srus springs on the back.

before lowering the back the measurement from the center of the wheel to the apex of the wheel arch was 435 mm
after lowering and driving round for a couple of hundred km's it measured 375 mm. I have a simple camper conversion in the rear of the van, estimate approx 150 kgs empty and another 150 kgs fully loaded
The front arches have been flared slightly, the rears will need to be done too to stop a little guard rub.

what was the little fiddle? i have t4rus 85mm springs and the thinner spring seats, still need to go a bit lower, any advise?
Yeah bin the t4rus springs calibra / cavalier / astra h / corsa / bmw springs seem to be the only way to get one 'low' standard springs or in some cases lowered versions of the springs above. along with lowered plates or none at all :D
As for the front notching chassis plates , shortening and re shaping the bumpstops as well as winding down the torsion bar does the trick :D

19" 8j et30 rims fitted with 245 40 19 tyres, there aint a lot of room on the front and i have had to fit standard bump stops again but the rears just about clear unless its a really big bump and it just touches the tyre wall.

lowered 40mm on eibach's with standard 15" wheels + 5 people + band gear... just done 1230 miles in 5 days with no problems.

can't recommend the springs enough, buy cheap buy twice, is that what they say?
