A 60m is way too much, stick with 30 or perhaps a 40mm as there is quite a bit of space on the arches. Match dropped suspension with the right alloys and you will have a slik looking car ;)

Welcome to TorqueCars and I hope you enjoy it here, let us know what you think of the Polls and other threads ;).

ive got 15" high speed alloys and im lookin 2 keep them but 40 isnt enough, that will stil leave an inch gap in the arch. cheers for the advice but id stil like a bigger drop if u no anywer.

Why not get the arches flared? You could always do the 60mm drop and roll or pull the arches if you find it rubs. It still seems a bit low to me. ;)

dont know about coilovers. have you looked at airbags or hydraulics. that way you can have it set up to how you want, your 60mm drop, and still have the ability to raise it slightly for speed bumps. if your set on springs or coilovers it might have to be a case of a custom setup

think the reason waynnes saying its too low is, chances are you will damage the driveshafts and gearbox by going very low as the angle has been changed so much

i have had aa lowered baleno 60 mm which i bought. defo not worth doin that. erm yeah i would recommend 40 at the most those rear arches will need to much attention otherwise and when u got a full car u cant get over speed bumps then you look like noahs animals getting outa the ark just to get the car to get over a speedbump lol!!!

"A 60m is way too much, stick with 30 or perhaps a 40mm as there is quite a bit of space on the arches. Match dropped suspension with the right alloys and you will have a slik looking car" :wink:
