Here's mine on Sachs Performance Coilovers...
Hey fellas, here's a thread I started when I originally got them...
ZF Sachs is absolutely massive, they make OEM dampers/clutches for tons of manufacturers (like VW), and they also have a performance arm (Sachs Race Engineering) which make stuff for aftermarket and all the way to Touring Car series, 24h Le Mans, WRC, Formula 1 etc.
I was sold by the quality and adjustablilty of these coilovers, you can see my review in the thread link above. Though, they're not for someone looking to slam their ride - the pic I posted is as low as the rear will go (collars have been removed), the front can go about 20mm lower. Not that I want to go lower, really happy with the stance now... and the ride quality. :thumbup:
Probably never heard of them because they hadn't been released in the US until about 4 months ago through TC Kline Racing. Apparently these guys are the shit, definitely charging for it though.
Here's a link to the Sachs Race Engineering website, and some pics I took when I got them...
Hey man looks good- I also got Eibach Pro-Kit springs put on mine the other day... BUT it looks like your ride was sitting below stock height to begin with.. no? are those OEM sport springs on there before?Eibach Pro-Kit:
Had a set Eibach springs fitted today at Centreline Suspension in Melbourne (Australia). These guys were great in their consultation to make sure I got the set-up I wanted. Lower but with everyday practicality. I think I got the right result. Centreline are experts in race-car set-ups and were very careful to make sure my car was looked after. (Thanks Chris!!!)
Before then After....

Makes sense, thanks for that. Made me feel a lot better about getting my lowers painted in a few weeks too :thumbsup:I've driven my car with H&R Super Sports and cupkit struts through 6+ inches of snow before. It's a 2" drop. This year will be interesting now that I have the Votex lip. I'd take it off, but I don't have the OEM stock one anymore, and it's sort of a pain anyhow. I'm just praying I can avoid those ice chunks that drop off cars.
Definitely invest in winter tires if you don't already have them though. I got stuck more on the factory all seasons on stock 06 ride height than I have lowered 2" with winter tires. Sure, it's not going to go through 12" of snow (I tried in a parking lot once haha), but neither is stock suspension. Think about it. The car is bottoming out on snow if there's anything more than 6" regardless of ride height.
And my car sits lower than that I'd say.
This is how my car sits. 17x8 wheels with 225/45 tires. It's about 24.3" fender to ground, measuring from the center of the edge of the fender to the ground.
Edit: Maybe it's about the same height wheel gap wise, just the 17's may make it sit slightly lower to the ground i.e. the overall diameter is less than the Huffs.
DG are gonna be your best bet.Any springs available other than DG that drop the car less than an inch??
