There is a brand called Gates which are pretty well known.

http://www.gatesracing.com/

Not sure where to get them from, but they can be pretty expensive. I'm sure some of the local autoshop might be able to get some in. They make both belts and hoses.

Here are cheap hoses in blue off e-bay.

Yeah supercheap here have the blue gates "racing" drivebelts in stock.
It wears off anyway, i wouldnt get too excited!
As for the springs, Lows are around 30mm lower then stock, SL are around 2" then SSL are around 3"..
I'm not sure if you are able to get lower then SSL now days from kingsprings
Cheers Jason
