Do you have to get the geometry checked or adjusted?

lower springs will definitely look much better than the original ones, but i think this lower springs will pressure the dampers more affecting its performance and durability! :(

is this a 45mm drop on 18s?
if so thats exactly what i want! what specifics are your alloys? if the above is the case
off set etc and are you running any form of spacers?

YEP..45MM drop, 18"x8 rims ,no spacers reqd....i think they're 35mm offset..seems to be the norm these days..
Have to say its a lot firmer now, handles great but can be a wee bit rough on crapola roads.. ;)
