    Default lowering 205 front

    id like to lower the front of the 205 but i find the eibach lowering springs a bit too hard a ride.
    can anyone recomend a brand of spring that will lower the front without being too hard?.
    the konis make it hard enough for everyday use and id like to keep it within reason.or am i just going to have to put up with the hard ride if i want to lower it?-BAZZ

    I thought the Yellow Konis on the softest setting and standard spring gave a great ride. Just get your std. springs reset 40mm lower.

    i agree wholeheartedly which is why i said i didnt want the harder ride of the eibach's,but it seems the car is sitting a bit higher than before due to the dampers not sagging with the weight of the car.they are on the lowest setting and the car handles and rides wonderfully so i dont want to change that.
    so you think resetting the springs is the way to go?,is that a good practice?
    i have heard differing reports on the subject,but i must say would be a good soloution at probably not a great cost.-BAZZ

    Baz, it is the springs which control the height of the car. The only way the Konis could raise the car is if they are gas.
