Just get some springs and dampers. You'll be fine. Go with Koni and you'll get adjustability as well.

Default True...

I have Intrax springs that lower it 1.5', but the front look higher than the back. Id either have to get bigger rims or bigger tires to fill in the gap.

Vogtland makes nice springs for the NG And yes a few NG have coilovers. We had to do it to get stiffer springs for competition. There are none on the market.

so there are problems with the intrax shocks. becuase i was looking in on them, but bad reviews dont sound, well good. but a 1.7 drop would look really good on my saab.

and can someone put a link for the koni adjustables. thank you

i found the koni sport kit, (springs and dampers) from Europe, and after cash transfer from pounds to dollars its going to be. 860.00 ish.. wtf mate


i think it would be cheaper to get the B&R springs and the koni dampers. but then why not pay the extra 150 bux for the kit.. idk its a tough decision.

Why don't you just get the Koni kit from a U.S. distributer?

Shox.com has Konis for $624.40 with free shipping. Much better than ordering them from Europe. They also have a kit with B&G springs for $765.00.

Unless you change the factory springs you won't get a drop.
