I just installed this item on my CAR. 500T

http://www.ebay.com/itm/351106764635?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

Tech Detail :

Lower Rate: 1.0" Front + 1.35" Rear
Spring Rate: 280F & 230R

It looks realy nice for some people but for me the car is to low for my taste, and the worst i that is to stiff now, In my country streets are not like in USA or Europe so many bumps and bad steets so the daily ride is not fun and for long traveling is not good . from stock i only wanted to lower it .5 or and inch, thats why i bought this kit is says 1. front and 1.3 rear, but noooooo, this is like a 2 inch or something my car is on the ground ready for a track not for the Colombian steets.

Like i said i want a bit lower car but still soft rice not race ride, is this possible with this adjustable supensions. wich one is better .... only budget for this is 900USD tops.

Thanks all for reading and for the help.

Abarth is slightly lower than 500T.

Any of those choices will do what you want.

I didn't take the time to look up the Megan coilovers but I know from memory the ST's can go down 20-55mm for the rear and 30-60mm in the front. This is from OEM Abarth height.

For example, once istalled the ST, the car will be -30mm so from there i can go to -60mm, if its like it its even lower of the ones i installed, they are 1 inch or 25mm so will not work, if im wrong ir just to stupid quetion , sorry not very clear for me this systems,


So i assume they only from -30 to -60mm, for more agressive lowering


Thanks boostfreak
