I'm after some lowering springs for my move, as the standard ones been cut by previous owner and they overhangs at the bottom cups..!
Just wondering if springs for the cuore/Mira would fit my move? Or perhaps someone has some for sale on here?
Hi, I've also run cut springs but there welded to the cups to stop them dislocating and to pass MOT
l501 cuore springs will fit but don't offer much in the way of big lows but if you don't mind not being very low there your cheapest option.
Or if you want to spend the money you could give GAZ a shout and get them to make a custom set of coilovers for the front, and a custom spring and shock setup of your choice on the rear
Hope that helps
Great, thanks for confirming!
Never thought of welding springs to the cups.. Seems to be the cheapest option, as I'm moving house soon so funds is tight at the moment! But might can scrape enough together for lowering springs.. Is there any particular ones/brand I should avoid?
Just worried that with welded cut springs, it could eventually fuck up and break a bit of the cup off?
Cheers for your reply!
I have ran cut and welded spring for years on some of my cars with no issues, however I know it's not the best option.
Also if you have pigtailed springs(get tighter coil at the end) then cutting is a definate no as the springs won't line up with the cups regardless of welding them in.
The only springs I've bought and tried were poison elf racing for Daihatsu cuore.
They seemed to be fit fine but didn't offer anywhere near the low ride height I wanted so I removed them and went back to cut springs with tow assistors to increase rigidity
I think my springs was pig-tailed as standard at front, havent seen the rear ones. they're been cut (by previous owner) half of the coil is hanging off the cup at the front :/
So i reckon my best option is to get the 83.99 set of -35mm springs off ebay.. Don't want to go well low yet as the mk2 escort steelies it has on now is catching rear arches on bad bumps
My memories isn't the best so don't hold me to this but I'm 90% sure the standards aren't pigtailed as I never had any issues atall with the cut springs on all 3 of my moves.
But yes I'd say give them a shot dude, will hopefully be a cheapish way of getting it back out on the road
I'm currently looking at seeing what I've got kicking about/can get for cheap to make fit my current move as I'm rebuilding it and need more lows but can't go any lower on current setup without it becoming dangerous/mot failure and excessively bouncy.
If I've found something that can be modified to fit relatively easy by the time your looking to go lower I'll let you know
