    Rear coilovers

    Looking at getting some coilovers on the rear, Avo and Gaz are the only ones I've found that go lower than 75mm.

    Anyone know of any others that will go lower ?

    Thanks

    Do FK do coilovers for the rear? I thought it was just height adjustable springs and a separate damper.

    As hardcore said.

    Either spend big like gaz (don't like Avo) or buy some some shocks and lowering springs.

    Although gaz rear coilovers were 160 I think which is cracking price, very happy with mine.

    Yeah that's what I meant, thought they are classed as coilys?

    No mate, coilover is short for "coil spring over strut" and standard set up doesn't use a strut on the rear.

    Yeah FK are just shocks with adjustable springs like most seem to be.

    Already lowered 60mm with shortened shocks but wanna go lower

    Been looking for springs (80/100/110mm) but they seem to be a rare thing these days
