H&R 'cup' suspension kit

As title says I'm looking to start a group buy on this suspension kit:-

http://www.larkspeed.com/index.pl?a=...uspension-Kit#

I don't fancy bodging some lowering springs onto unmatched OEM dampers . If we get good numbers we should get some good discount

This suspension system lowers the car BUT DOESN'T compromise the ride quality .

Re: H&R 'cup' suspension kit

They are probably the best 'springs' you can get but aren't as good as a fully 'matched' suspension which is what you'll be getting here. I'm waiting an e-mail back .

Re: H&R 'cup' suspension kit

Anyone got this set-up on a M-Jet 1.9, im sure the quoted 50mm drop would end up closer to 60mm

Cheers

Re: H&R 'cup' suspension kit

@JackFi its horrible on really uneven roads, its quite harsh but not as bad as coilovers though!
However, i would recommend them.
With a full car the rear wheels hit the arches when bumps are hit but its still a good ride when full.
