Are there lowering springs available for the V70R? I don't want to lower it too much, and do not want to mess up the 4C active suspension.<br>THX!<br>

IPD sells springs from TME which only lower the car 1/2-5/8 inch. Order them with the anti sway bar and you will be very happy. I have a front lip on my car and haven't scraped yet!<br>DAn

This will get you some stuff, but reliably seems to miss posts/topics that it should find. <p>the other approach is to use a customized google search engine, at: <A HREF="http://www.google.com/custom?domains=forums.swedespeed.com&sitesearch=forums.swedespeed.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.google.com/custom?d...d.com</A><p>I haven't used this alot myself yet, but it may be better, and at least between the two you'll probably turn up more stuff of interest. <p>

(lowest drop)<p>We are sold out at the moment, but the container is on the water and due here 2nd week of May, so 3-4 weeks and by then our new installation facility should be open so we can install them for you as well. <p>We also have the EIBACH (same as HEICO/EVOLVE) springs in stock if you want to go lower. In fact, we are overstocked on the HEICO V70R spring application only ( made by Eibach / same specs) and we could do those for $590 installed. ($250 for the springs $340 installation) This is also a good time to throw in the sway bars and HD end links if you are considering them as you will save about $100 on the installation if you do them all together. You would need to get an alignment done afterwards ( we can arrange this and have it done when you pick up the car if you prefer), and I guarantee you that you won't leave our shop with your headlights all messed up from an imporperly performed suspension calibration! The Eibach V70R springs are labeled as HEICOS and are origianlly $539 set and are a nice blue instead of red liek the Eibachs. <br>These are also availabe at this special price while we are overstocked on our website or by calling 1-800-444-6473.<br>
