just curious ive recently aquired my first car an 82 244. and im wondering how much they would cost and if i need anything else to lower it (bit new at all this)
Can offer a cheap Jamex set from the late 90's. Not great feel as too hard but lowers and can be yours for say $80 plus shipping?
I have a set of STUPIDLY low lovels that look fantastic on a 244
$100 if you come pull them or $250 for the whole car (81 244)
Which spring set is best for you will depend on the type of driving you do and what you use the car for. Significantly higher spring rates will require more serious shock absorbers.
it all comes down to why you want to lower - if it's for aesthetic reasons, super low looks great, but it won't handle particularly well workout some more serious work.
if you're after an improvement in handling, there are some good spring options that will work with ordinary oem type shocks.
if you're after something better again, you'll likely be re-thinking spring rates and starting to think about decent shock absorbers too.
One of the frustrating things about spring kits is that they typically don't make their rates known.
thanks for all the replys although i am not looking to buy any just yet. im just getting what the average price would be for a simple lower for purely aesthetic reasons
Hey @egads, how much lower than standard are your Jamex springs?
About 3cms. The rear ones are too low for a wagon by about a cm. Perfect for sedan though. These were the ones on Anthony Hydes hillclimb 240 for the early to late 2000's.
