If you are looking to upgrade the suspension on your 405, the best
results I have seen are with the Bilstein kit. (Picture attached of the
general set up/ride height).

Prices depend on the exchange rates, so let me know if you want some
prices and I'll work them out.

Let me know if you need any information on anything else.

Best regards

That sure is lowered & looks cool! I hope you slow down for corners, as more than -50mm at the front and it's understeer city!! There can't be much suspension travel left at the rear, even with the bump stops removed!!.

I should add that the front is no longer quite that low.
And if you live near speedhumps, driveways, bumps in the road or ant crossings haha dont do it.
I drove over a coke can rolling on its side and it got stuck!!!
my undercarriage was getting a few scrapes so i decided to raise it before causing any serious damage.

Here's a question for you Andreas ! You are kidding yourself if you think the Mi16 box will take the horse power of the T16 !
(that's if I don't bid you out of it !!!)
The T16 of course comes out of a 4 wheel drive with a particularly well reinforced gear box and heavy duty clutch.
I know for a fact that the Mi16 4 wheel drive cars are particularly fond of blowing transfer cases fairly regularly !
Please keep the performance forum posted on your progress.

Ps, send me the T16 contact . GO ON !!!!!
