So after driving my car for a few hundred km's with the new coilovers heres the verdict. I think they were lowered about 50-60mm all round, which has been fine on most roads and ramps(except for some big ass ramps in the Liffey Valley car park!) Ride is a bit firmer but the only time you notice it is on big crater pot holes. Handling is greatly improved, back end is less twitchy and you can throw the car into the corner at a higher speed and the car will just stick.

The only bad thing is multi storey car parks. Was coming down through the Royal Surgeons car park last night and every single slope i went down the underbody scraped off the ground, i think this was mainly down to the fact there was 2 fat batards in the car with me! apart from that im happy with them, car handles better, looks better and only worse when you smack into a big pot hole so i give them 9/10.

So i wanna have a mess around with the camber and ride height on them see what difference it makes. Anyone have any experience with these settings? Do i need to rave the car jacked up all round or can i do one wheel at a time?

It is best to have the two front wheels off the ground. Just be careful cause as soon as you change the camber your tracking will be out of line

I think ill leave the camber so and just play with adjusting the height.
