Default Spring lowering

Didn't get to post up in Dave's FS thread, but I have H-sports on my cooper...maybe we could use this thread to compare pictorially (if that's a word) how much drop each spring has...post your wheel and tire specs too, as they might help.

very nice drop. how much did they lower your ride with it not being an "s", I just bought myself a set of alta springs, they lower the ride 1.5 front and 1 in the back. i want to picture what my car will look at droped compared to yours.......

i'd say less than an inch. It's been almost 2 years since I lowered it, but I know I was hoping for more at the time. I'd do it again, but it's just such a pain to do by yourself that I don't have the will.

so do you think that although alta springs say 1.5 in the front it will actually be like .75 or less ??? anyways i will post up this weekend once i get the installed and it will be interesting to compare, maybe seeing my drop will encourage you do it again.....

I'd can't say for sure, but I think you'll definitely get an inch at least. The H-sports claim only around an inch I think...haha you never know, but if I were to go and do it again I go the less tedious route and just get coilovers.
