I normally don't like red on a car but this is the dogs ******** in red. Don't think lowering would be possible, some of the roads I have to drive on are awful

lower it!

i live in speed bump central and mines okay

coilovers would be bad idea but 40mm lowering springs are fine, especially the eibach sportline or pro kit as the ride is actually slightly better than standard tjet springs anyway but with the much better handling

aslong as you drive carefully itll be fine, theyre progressive so the more force applied to them i.e fast hard cornering the more they firm up but most of the time its an acceptable ride, people have had them on for a couple years now with no issues with the shocks or anything!

the ones you want for the tjet are actually the diesel springs btw
Thanks Samzimmer thanked for this post

I might consider it, depends on transport for work. Need a van

No offence but the roads in Scotland are far worse in my opinion to the ones I have experienced down in England, there was a pothole just near my road end that had worn down onto the soil under the road!

The council have just recently filled it though to my relief!

Not yet but I'm buying some hopefully by next weekend, going down to MK for a few days so I hope to have got them by then. I went for red.

You should go for something to make it stand out, reds a bit boring because that's what everybody does.
