Safest way is to get lowering springs.

I got mine for £60. Its lowered by 30mm

Don't go cutting off springs on your existing ones though, veeeerry dangerous

Wouldn't that be bad if you went a steep curb?

Is there any point to doing it or do you just want low ground clearance for absolutely no reason whatsoever?

You're best off looking for a lowering kit for it. Like mentioned, don't try and cut your existing springs. Bad idea.

i know in some older trucks you can loosen up the tortion bars (well im assuming since you can tighten them to jack it up a little) but idk about cars or how to do it

Some cars, like Citroen Saxos [lol] have a bar thing that you can use to lower it yourself but that was only the back end. I wouldn't recommend trying to do it yourself, just buy some new springs that lower it to what you want and get a mechanic to fit them. They are pricey but at least it will work.

Somebody told me that today...about just needing to buy lowering springs.
why would somebody want a "kit" though? what is in the kit that is helpful besides springs?


and to everyone else, i just wanna lower it. Lol
i just personally don't like how high it's sitting. and it's not like i go rock climbing or sh!t so i don't care.
like i said, 1.5 inches, its not like i'm gonna be scrubbing the ground.

TheEdit: i'm not gonna do it, but just out of curiosity, what's bad about cutting the springs? what can happen?

if you have aftermarket wheels, you need to make sure they will fit after it is lowered... just sayin

we bought the car used, and these seem to be the same as the tires that come on it. they look they'd fit fine.
either way, i'll just ask my dad, he's the "mechanic/car guy" of the home. lol

The cheapest way to do it would be lowering springs.

Invest in a cupkit, or if money is not an issue, coilovers.
