Default Lowering Springs for Baleno

I am looking for lowering springs which are streetable. Most of the available ones drop atleast 40mm, which I feel is a bit too much.

Anybody knows spring which drop by 1inch both front and back.

Locally available is Pedders but I dont know the drop neither is it advertised anywhere on their site.

Eibach does not have springs for the baleno.

Another questions dropping the car 40mm, how does it affect camber?

Pedders lowering springs lower around 50mm. Price around 16.8K for a set of four.

You need to make sure if the spring is meant for the strut or a coil over.

The Peddar one is probably for a coil over (small dia spring) and will not fit on a Koni Strut.

Good point there, but if these springs are available separately wont they be for stock replacement?

Not always. The rally guys will use one coilover body and use different springs (stiffness) based on the track which they will buy separately.

Hey mohit, pretty sure there are peddars available with a 10mm drop. Check with electra, or get in touch with blue baleno boy

Erm, I don't know much about PeddErs, but I do know they don't make coilovers for the Baleno. I used to have a set of 40mm Kings, but they're long gone. No point lowering unless you're going 40mm minimum. The Baleno will not touch anywhere that a stock car wouldn't touch, especially once you have a custom exhaust. I know this for a fact because I once ran a 100mm - 4 inch drop and I never once grounded the car anywhere.

The part you're looking for is front - 2342 and rear - 2343.

Binoy, i checked with Electra, either pedders comes with std height spring (their heavy duty range) or 50mm lowering springs (sports ryder range).

V1p3R: How was the Kings springs? how was the ride, durability?

100mm drop! Here am worried about a 30mm drop!

100mm drop seems too low. That why may be he takes half the time to cover the distance and double the time to get over bumps.

On further thought, how did you lower 100mm? DMS lowers only 50mm right? So What springs and what struts?

Pedders Heavy duty springs lower by 10mm. I have these and they're soft for my tracking needs.
Pedders Lowering springs drop quite a bit. Please enquire at Pedders HQ for the exact drop and spring rate. Do some research on the spring rates for your car before putting down 17k.
