Was looking at lowering my EF gli slightly, want it to look nice but DO NOT want to loose handling or practicality. I've heard of using XR6 springs for slightly lower ride but would like to hear your thoughts! thanks in advance!

My car here is as low as you can go with pedders suspension... It is the grey rear springs and the grey front springs which are fitted to the sportsryder shocks which have a 30mm lower spring carrier than std shocks...

I don't believe you'll loose handling by lowering it... You'll make it more rigid which gives more handling... You'll lower the centre of mass which will prevent body roll...

I also have the largest whiteline swaybars fitted which greatly reduced the body roll of the car... And AU top front arms which double the front caster and I love the way the steering wheel feels when fast cornering now, possible slight loss of traction due to the extra caster, but still hangs on good enough for me... Can rack some serious g's up in the corners...

Cheers,
Tim

Are you running shortened shocks? And how does she go over speed humps and up steep inclines?
