    Hey you lot,


    ryt ve put another set of lowering springs in. 60mm all round instead of 40.


    want the front a little lower. my freind tells me the forks on the bottom of an ef shock are shorter than the forks in an EG, apparently thats how a few of you boys have slammed the front of your egs.


    is this true and how much shorter are they??

    The EF fork have smaller "slot" than the EG, therefore your EG damper will not fit into the EF Fork.


    You can use shorter springs which will loose suspension travel if you want to lower more.


    Or you can use shorter dampers if you can find them, not sure manufacturer makes shorter dampers because they will not fit a standard car.


    The only true way to lower the car without any draw back is to use a dual perch coilovers setup...


    otherwise what you gain in lowering, you loose in damper stroke travel.
