Hey PZ, where in mumbai did you get the blisteins from and at what price. Also do you go to the A.S.S for service, or have you found some reliable mech. Please share info on that.

Bilsteins are from Pete's as he's mentioned. The new batches have significantly increased cost, nearly 1.5x of wht he paid (88k).

Hi prithiwi_81

Please be a little careful when you adjust the height as it vastly affects the suspension geometry . That will alter the handling .

Say For example in a McPherson Strut . You want to lower the car ( effectively CG) so that you get better handling and lower body roll in corners . If you shorten the strut length your ride height will go down but your roll stiffness may be decreased due to change in the control arm position. Please keep suspension geometry in mind before changing the ride height .

Also when you change the ride height , you probably turn the special screw on your strut which holds the spring . This apart form changing the spring length alters it's preload and stiffness ( if a progressive spring ) and will bring about changes in your ride quality .
