Last weekend I finally got and installed my konis along with with H&R springs which lower the car 1.5 inches, but I found my car to only be .5 an inch lower. Did I do something wrong or is the 1.5 number for the normal model and the GTi is already slightly lower?? <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=>mfvmx</A> at: 9/13/01 9:27:30 am<br></i>

I've got H&Rs as well although I never mentioned before and after ride heights. They are a good choice for springs though.<br><br>Basically A) the H&Rs could settle down a bit after driving around for a while<br><br>or B) your stock springs/struts were worn and your car was sitting lower than stock ride height already. <br><br>I know when I look at my bros car, his looks like a 4x4 while although mine doesn't look super low, it is very noticebly lower than his. <br><br> <p><br><a href=""><img src=""></a></img><br>Kyle Jones <b>1989 Suzuki Swift GTi</b><br>Your friendly TeamSwift Op.</p><i></i>

I've got Jamex springs on my <!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="">Metro GTi</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--> Convertible. When I compare it to my stock Metro Convertible they are almost the same, but it's about an inch lower than my stock Swift GTi. <p></p><i></i>

You need to have 14" wheels to drop the car that low. <p>Carl-Eric Dionne, 1990 Black SSGTi, Montreal Canada</p><i></i>
