in theory, if you lower it to much it will ruin the handling :)

60mm isn't too much though, I handled a lot better at 60mm than I did at 40mm. I've tried and tested both heights with my old car :lol:

60mm is overkill on road cars
if your on track maybe its ok with no bumps
plus think of all the stress the wishbones will be in
you'll be replacin em every month man
imo 30/40mm is all you need but please dont just get springs it WILL ruin your standard shocks because there not made to go low
i dont kno what all this no arch gap is about :hmm:
surely you would have trouble gettin full lock on :doh:
doesnt do the tyres any good :lolz:
when i look at a car i see how well it sits not how much gap is between the arch and wheel
oh and meilack is right lowering your car too much will make it handle like a sack of.......
