There are a lot of posts on here about doing it.
Jack car up, remove a bolt or 2, spring falls out, put new one in, replace bolts.

Something like that, but look around on the forums

Just tell him that he let you use faulty equipment and it could have seriously injured you - fatally, and that he should keep his mouth shut if he knows whats good for him :thumbs_up:

Ahh touched as a little boy in inappropriate places then.

Will look fine as long as you have the right size tyres on (195/50/15 or 195/45/15).

My car was lowered around 40mm with 15s wrapped with 195/50/15 tyres so have a browse through my project to get an idea of how it will look if you want.

Also make sure you have the right offset ET49 as otherwise you could get some arch scrubbing.

We can do it on the stand at PVS if someone brings some tools - changed some brakes and repaired a smashed window at Trax lol!
