Rear Coilovers - How Can I Get Lower On The Rear?

Recommended Posts

Wondering if there is any way I can get lower on the rear of my lupo without having to get custom springs? I've taken the adjusters out and it is still to high, just wanting to know of there is anything else I can do? Also heard heating them up to compress them is a bad idea.

They're ment to be a bit pricey and don't really want to be spending out if I don't have too, will have to see if there's anything else first

Shorter springs are just a solution if u want to go a bit lower on the rear, because if you use much shorter springs they just fall out, in worst case while driving.

So, the best solution for the rear axle is a double spring system (main and helper spring like mounted at front axle), helper spring provides that the main spring falls out and keeps the tension on the main spring when lifting up the rear.

To make it more perfect, you can let rebound the rear shocks.

Here a pic of mine, KW uses the same system in their clubsport coilover series:

If u are interested: u should calculate with about 250 pds incl. shipping.

Demon tweeks sell Faulkner springs.

I got the custom set for my Lupo for less than £100.

You have a wide variety of specs to choose from as well.

The helper springs are actually a damn good idea as well.

I ended up modding the adjusters so it wasn't sat on the lip to get about another 10mm drop but it's still not as low as I'd like, I'll look into custom rear springs eventually but it doesn't sit to bad now
