Hi,

I've got a ST202 1998 Convertible UK Model. I've just put 18's on with 40 offset.. (eek) Anyway, I'm trying to find out best way of lowering it and what's needed and how low would be suggested without there being tyre interference.

Are there special springs for the convertible bearing in mind the chassis is heavier than the coupe?

Anyone done this before or know where I should start?

Cheers.

Nicki

should be the same as doing suspension on a hatchback.

not sure about the gen 5, but apparently not on the gen 6 due to difference in weight. Need to know best place to go to find them.

In the meantime, heres some pics....
