Good comment peanuts firming up the rear helps on front wheel drive cars - softing up the rear or making the front harder than the rear makes them worse. I have driven lowered clio and meganes with rear torsion bar suspension and whilst the front tries to stay on the road the rear wallows about like a flat bottomed boat - next time I take one like that for a drive i'll be heading for the link below.

yeah all i want to do is lower it a bit and keep the suspention stiff, as i have had the 15" alloys when i take roundabouts the car tilts a bit,

all the work will be done by a pro fitter
